Had grand R.O.N. there once.
Not long ago my wife, Janet, and I bought a quantity of beef from a friend who raised cattle on a small farm. It was less expensive than meat from a grocery store, and we put it in the freezer to use throughout the coming months.
Then a terrible lightning storm cut power throughout our area. For the first 24 hours we were confident that the freezer would keep the meat frozen. But when the second day came with still no word of getting our power back, we began to be concerned.
We contacted Ted, a member of our Bible-study group, to see if he had any advice. He canceled an appointment he had and showed up at our doorstep with a generator to provide power for the freezer. We were thankful that Ted helped us, and we knew it was because of his love for Christ.
The old saying a friend in need is a friend indeed took on new meaning for us. John reminds us in 1 John 3:18, My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth. Sometimes this means inconveniencing ourselves to care for the interests of others or receiving that help when we ourselves are in need. After all Christ has done for us, its a blessing to be His hands and feet in loving one another.
Read: 1 John 3:11-18

Snow was spitting on my windshield as I drove to work this morning. And the skies have lightened up as the day wore on.
