This ministry provides (or has in the past) fresh produce at no charge. There are several places around the area where they arrive(d) with a truck full of veggies and fruits on specific days. However, the last two times we’ve gone, no one was there. I tried calling this afternoon and was unable to speak to anyone. I went to their website and it said ‘CLOSED’. I don’t know what to think.

We found ourselves with two hours before going to the next stop on our agenda for the day. It was lunch time and we had coupons for Subway. Rather than sit in the truck, we optioned to eat inside where it was a more comfortable wait.

Leander Church of Christ Food Pantry

provides food for everyone every Wednesday evening. They have a special time for seniors (55+) on the third Thursday of the month from two until three. They were there and passing out food. We did manage to get some fresh produce after all. They had potatoes, carrots, apples, bananas, and onion. The onions will be taken to the common room at the apartments with a FREE sign.

We came home with 2 cardboard boxes and 2 plastic crates of food. That realistically is way too much food for the two of us.

We have an over flowing box of food to re-donate. We’ll take it to
Operation Liberty Hill

Scripture Reading:  Psalms 23:1

The LORD is my shepherd. I am never in need.

Think: In reality I am often in need. But the fault is not the Shepherd’s. I wander and do not follow. I often confuse ‘want’ with need. In truth the greatest need I have is salvation from myself. My self centered, self willed life leads me away from the eternal plenty of the Shepherd’s loving kindness.

Pray: Great Shepherd, thank you for loving me even when I’ve failed to follow. Thank you for your salvation. Thank you for providing all that I need. Amen.
