""sanctuary" (not sure if that is what we call it since our church is set up a little different than most but anyway) when I saw Pastor Bret out of the corner of my eye, he was up toward the front. We were mingling with friends when he asked if we were coming or going. I replied coming. He simply said "hold on" and ran back toward the kids area.
He emerged a few minutes later with an envelope that ready Ryan & Beth Chupp. When I said thank you he explained that it was not from me but from someone who wanted to remain anonymous. While we were waiting for the band to start playing I opened the envelope up. It has a note and this is what it read:
"All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling
their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need."
Acts 2:44-45 NIV

I am so thankful, as well as Ryan is, that we have people in our lives (whomever you maybe) that care about us and our family at this trying time.
