Bishop Inyo Hospital

Our day was about giving! It's 6 miles from our campground to the Bishop Inyo Hospital...
We had 8 hats for donation on this day (with 2 that where mailed the week prior)...
We had hoped to meet Lucy who is the head for the advocate program but she was out of the office on this day. But I did get a call from her today and heard nothing but excitement in her voice!! My husband of course gets dragged on these adventures but when the day is complete and we are doing our daily scripture studies he humbled by the days advents and becomes emotional.  I have to give a shout out to the hospital receptionist who where so wonderful and was tickled and honored that we would ride that far to donate. 

"Become doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves with false reasoning. For if anyone is a hearer of the word, and not a doer, this one is like a man looking at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself, and off he goes and immediately forgets what sort of man he is. But he who peers into the perfect law that belongs to freedom and who persists in it, this man, because he has become, not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, will be happy in his doing it." (James 1:22-25).

God Bless all those that we can serve and that we pray that we may set a good example of charity love - as we remind ourselves each time we head to the hospital - if charity isn't work then it's not charity and that's why we pride ourselves with hard rides to humble ourselves and remind ourselves what our lord has done for us!!
