As y'all know, we all just participated in Blogging For Fair Havens. Recently, I received confirmation that a donation had been sent to Midland Fair Havens by the St. Mary Land and Exploration - Permian Region. The amount of the donation blew me away.
I couldn’t believe it. I was so excited, and humbled, and amazed! I called Jimmy the P right away. I doubted he would answer; it was 9:45 p.m. I just had to let him know.
Janie: JP. This is Janie. I don’t care if you’re awake or asleep, I have to tell you what happened.
JP: (He started laughing, but I can tell he’s trying to be polite – and he sounds exhausted, as well he should be – he just came off a 24 hour blogathon! But, nothing really fazes him, plus, Jimmy’s used to me doing crazy stuff like calling him at all hours of the night.)What happened, Janie? (I told him.)
JP: Pardon me?
Janie: (In a nutshell, I told him that the Midland office of St. Mary Land and Exploration donated $5000 to Midland Fair Havens.)
JP: Janie, that’s amazing!
JP’s laughing, but you can tell he’s way blessed and humbled, as well. We talk all through it, and JP opens up the Just Give.org Midland Fair Havens website. Including the St. Mary Land and Exploration donation, the donation figure is just over $17000. What’s so cool about this is that other local bloggers, through their beautiful wives, are also associated with St. Mary Land and Exploration...and if I know these wives, they had a hand in deciding their company's charities for the year. They are going to be so blessed.
What an awesome thing for St. Mary Land and Exploration to support Midland Fair Havens in this manner and with this generous donation – and what a great show of support for our local community!
So, right here, right now, I’m going to say to the good people of the St. Mary Land and Exploration Permian Region – thank you, from the bottom of my heart, and on behalf of all the lives that will be changed for the better because of your donation to Midland Fair Havens – thank you. Godspeed.
