We’ve had two major activities going on this week. I’ve been writing about the play (see link to watch the livestream below), but there has also been the push to get America the Beautiful to those who have been waiting for it so long. My husband Ray serves as president of Notgrass History. It’s been years since those duties including getting orders out the warehouse doors, but as a boost to the overtime our team has been putting in the last few days, Ray has gone to the warehouse a few evenings lately to help the cause.
“Is there anything I can do for you?” was Ray’s question while I was getting ready the other morning. His is a behind-the-scenes role in “The Play,” but we couldn’t do it without him. He’s the one warming up my vegetable soup to send with me to practice and saying “yes” to every “Could you . . . ?” question from both his wife and his daughter, including hosting our three-year-old grandson who had had enough play practice for a while and was very happy to get to spend Wednesday with his Notty.
Jesus came to earth to serve. Ray follows His example and walks in His steps. It is my privilege to watch Ray and to benefit from his sacrificial service.
Teaching our children to serve is an important item to include on the wise homeschooling mama’s list of things to cover before her children graduate.
For you were called to freedom, brothers and sisters;
only do not turn your freedom
into an opportunity for the flesh,
but serve one another through love.
Here is a link to see a livestream of “America!” With one fee of $5 per household, you can watch the performance tonight and/or the one tomorrow night.
