Today would have been Maggie Lee's 14th birthday. We mark it today not only with our fond memories of her life, but also with the second annual Maggie Lee for Good Day. It is a day to bring good out of what was incredibly bad and tragic; a way to join with others in partnering with God's redemptive power and love to bring good into the world. All it involves is doing one good thing for someone else. It's a simple yet powerful way to make a difference in this world. At least 18,000 people registered and participated in the day last year. And we are hoping for at least the same this year. Just think of 18,000 loving their neighbor with a good deed.
As Jesus said (Matthew 5:16), "so let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."

Feel free to share what you did do/wlll do here on this blog or on Facebook if you are reading it there. Also, if you are in Shreveport, come on over to El Chicos (on Fern) tonight at 7:00 PM for a celebration with stories, good food and music by the Matthew Davidson band. El Chico will donate a percentage of the receipts to the local Northwest Food Bank.
