LIFE AIN'T ABOUT STUFF! “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.” (Jesus speaking, Luke 12:15, NIV).
Now's a great time to get out and see the great state of Alabama. With that in mind, Alabama’s Tourism Department offers free mobile apps that are sure to put your road trip planning in gear. There’s a Civil Rights Trail app; a Barbecue Trail app; a 100 dishes app; and another loaded with suggestions for great day trips and other road trips. You’ll also find all sorts of brochures you can download, plus a link to click to order a print copy of the Alabama Vacation Guide.
If you have school-age kids or grandkids, here’s a website you can really get excited about: Schoola.com. Schoola is an online thrift shop that helps fund school programs. A parent can request a donation bag and it will be sent to the home, postage paid. The items sent to Schoola will be sold online and the proceeds will go to your designated school. And for every $5 spent on Schoola.com, $2 goes directly to schools. Imagine if an entire school got involved. Let’s say 250 parents and teachers donated 10 items each and all those items sold for $5 each. That would mean $5,000 going to their school. So check out the website. It’s loaded with great bargains on new and gently used clothing and accessories for men, women, and children, and you know your dollars are going to a really good cause. To see exactly how all this works, here's a short video.
A lot of farmers markets are open into fall and they’re great places to find fresh local produce and more. You can find the ones nearest you by going to this website: FMA.Alabama.gov. FMA stands for Farmers Market Authority, and their site shows a map of the state that lets you click on any county to see that area’s markets. There’s even a full page of recipes you might want to check out.

Go to church. Be the church each and every day. Be a blessing to others. "Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean He no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? As the Scriptures say, 'For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.' No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us" (Romans 8:35-37, NLT).
