Bring socks!!!! #homeless #donate #homelessness

As are toiletries!

I would also advice NOT to buy wool socks because yes, they are warm, but wool shrinks very easily, some people are allergic to wool, and wet wool is one of the most uncomfortable things in the world.
Thick cotton socks would be best, they’d last the longest and be the easiest to take care of and clean.

Cotton is best. Always cotton

I feel the need to STRESS the necessity of socks. For the event AMOK through Random Acts this year, we went to DTLA to pass out donations. At one point we basically ran out and some of us broke off from the group to buy some more items. We ended up at a convenience store that had two boxes of cotton socks. We bought them and as we were walking one man asked us if we had socks. And we said “Yes.” and gave him a pair and then suddenly we were surrounded by individuals all asking for socks. We were out of socks in a few moments. I can say from personal experience that socks were the most important article of clothing that they wanted.And as far as toiletries go, tampons. TAMPONS AND PADS. One woman was so excited, gracious, and thankful to receive tampons and pads, as it is a donation that seems to be overlooked. So please, of donations that could be given, while all articles of clothing and food and other necessities are more than welcome, socks and tampons and pads are largely needed.

And if you could spend the extra couple of bucks for special diabetic socks, you could save a homeless diabetic persons foot. Please.

After the longest month ever with some major unexpected life changes thrown at us, this Labor Day staycation has been just what I needed.

I start back to grad school for another round a month from yesterday and while I am THRILLED to be back in the classroom and starting my internship, there are several books I need to finish, sleep I need to catch up on, and quality time with family (here and afar) that needs to happen before then.

I let technology get in the way of those things too often so I hope that can change. I need to stop scrolling and refreshing and start reading and journaling more

On a whim, we decided to head east for some sunshine and drove all night to spend the day at John Day Fossil Beds National Monument to continue exploring the 7 wonders of Oregon 
This is at the Painted Hills Unit of the Fossil Beds and the red is volcanic ash and minerals dating back millions of years. 
Other photos include green, black, gold, and other colored layers of millions of year old geologic history. 
It’s crazy to think the things God created geologically in nature. The Fossil Beds we explored today were amazing and truly showed the detail that went into Creation over the time it took to perfect the Earth. 

What was also amazing about this trip was the background of the #liturgists podcast with Gungor and others debating evolution, creation, their intersections, etc. … To me, the science I saw today in the beauties of these rocks is simply the “how to” in Gods great creation story. #yesthatisreal #nofilter

Today on our journey east into the John Day Fossil Beds, I discovered I was over 24 million years old AND there is a town of 236 people named after me #funstuff #labordaystaycation #spontaneousroadtrip

We took our furry children out for a day hike on Mount Hood today after our original plans got rained out. Beautiful day! This was our lunchtime spot by Eliot Glacier  (at Cooper Spur)
