It was our monthly visit at the senior’s home this Saturday. We got there and we were setting everything up, as one of the workers came in and said, “Oh! I better go tell Ernie that you guys are here. He said he wasn’t coming down unless it was your family!”
This man, is such a sweetheart. Usually he brings down some sort of candy for the kids. Ella and Jeddy, are his best buddies. This week, he didn’t have any candy, so he brought down his change jars and counted out 7 equal piles of change for the kids. He gave them 35 cents each. Jed, right away wanted to know what he could buy with his money. I thought about it for a second, and then said, “How about timbits!?” He liked the idea. Ernie laughed listening to the kids talk about pooling their money for donuts, and then gave them another dollar for their donut fund.
Scott, preached a bit longer than he usually does this week- and he noticed some of the seniors starting to drift off, but Ernie, told him that his sermon was too short. Ernie, always waits around until all the other seniors leave to chat with us, and he is always in tears when we leave. He is such a sweetheart.
