There is no bus service for some students who go to Carriage Hill Elementary School.
Gabe and his mom, Kim, have to walk two miles every morning and then two miles after school.
Kim is a full-time student and single mom.
She can’t afford a car.
After Kim and Gabe had been featured on the news, an incredible thing happened.
A complete stranger pulled up next to them as they were walking to school.
The woman, Becky Novotny, asked if she could give Gabe a ride to school – she was going there to drop off her child, and it wouldn’t be a problem.
Isn’t that amazing?!
Simple human kindness.
Now Gabe and Kim don’t have to walk all that way to get to school!
Take a look at this video
Becky picks up Gabe in the morning and drops him at home in the afternoon!
Just when you thought there were no kind souls left on Earth.
Share away, people!
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new is here!
2 Corinthians 5:17
A blank page, a clear space, a fresh start.
With a new year, we often feel pressure to make resolutions and finally become the best version of ourselves that we can muster. While it’s a good time to make changes as the calendar turns a new page, it’s also good to know that there’s really only one thing that can transform us. The grace of God is freely given to us regardless of how many calories we count or how many workouts we complete. We don’t have to watch less television and eat more vegetables. We only have to ask our Father to forgive us and accept the grace that he so freely gives.
And the good news is that this fresh start is available every day, not just New Year’s Day. God’s forgiveness changes us from the inside out. What better way to begin again than to remember who we are in Christ!
Pray Now: “Lord, you are the one who changes me. I only have to accept your grace as I follow the example of your Son. Help me to start each day this year by knowing I’m forgiven.”
