744 Greeting Cards, Large Camp Sign, Cat Picture – The Monday (or Tuesday) Messy Office Report – August 11, 2014

12 Aug

My Friday tidy office is mysteriously messy on Monday.  Here’s what I found:

cards1. 744 Greeting cards: To be fair, these have been here at the church just over a week, but I didn’t bring them to my office until recently.  Yup, 744 greeting cards. Brand new, with envelopes, and even organized according to occasion!  At an average of $2.99 each, this is quite a stash.  In fact, one of our Lancaster County family-owned supermarket chains, Stauffers of Kissel Hill, donated them.  My long-time friend, Josh’s wife, Missy, works there and was able to get them as a donation.  Now I’ll be contacting local community organizations to see who these cards can bless!  If you’re a card-giver, you know how meaningful this gift is!  Thank you Josh and Missy!!!

2. Camp Sign: A rather big camp sign, to boot.  Last week our church was the location for a CEF Day Camp, and they left their main lobby sign here.  But since it was the last week, they didn’t need it anymore.  While I will be discarding the sign, I will keep a hold onto the good memories of the camp, as the staff and kids were incredible.  Because they participated in our summer lunch program three days, I got to spend a bit of time with them throughout the week.  I even convinced a couple of the kids to try tapioca, and when the got the courage to sample it, they found the liked it!  I’m thankful to Chris, Lisa, Adrienne and the other CEF staff who ran the camp, and I’m thankful that Faith Church is so gracious with the use of our building!

3. Cat Picture: Apparently a neighbor is missing his cat!  He stopped by on Sunday with color printouts of the cat and his contact info.  I hope you find your cat!

Now it’s time to clean up this mess!
