The stuff smiles are made of....

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
--Leo F. Buscaglia

This weekend, there were smiles... LOTS and LOTS of smiles. Why? Let us show you!!

God's handiwork- Evidence of spring... evidence of seasons changing... a reminder that a tree that was bare just a few short weeks ago can blossom into something this beautiful... (This applies to us to, ya know?!)

Reaching out, Welcoming In, Moving Forward- Refuge Point Church had our Easter Outreach this weekend and it was AMAZING. God commands us in Matthew 22:37 to love Him, with all our hearts, souls, and minds.. But, then He goes on to say that the next most important thing we are here to do is to LOVE our neighbor as ourselves. There was a whole lotta lovin' going on at the Easter Egg Block Party and at the end of the day, we all just went home feeling that God's work had been done in its simplest, purest form.

Family- this is one of the many families who simply enjoyed the day together... It was so refreshing to see people spending time with their children with nowhere else to be... For just those couple of hours, they were able to relax and make some memories with the folks they love.

JACKPOT- the KIDS LOVED filling their baskets to the brim with the eggs they found and a couple of them hit the plastic egg JACKPOT.. SCORE!!!

Doing what you love- We had some AWESOME praise and worship going on... thanks to King's Pasture Community Church... This is Tony Bray, drummer extraordinaire... See that smile? Tony will tell you, there is almost nowhere else he'd rather be than praising God with the drums.
What do you love? What makes you smile? God has come that we may have life and have it more abundantly... So, whether it's helping with a community outreach, spending time with your family, playing drums, or dressing up like an Easter bunny... FIND YOUR PASSION... use it for God's glory... and get ready... because you are going to smile like you've never smiled before~~
