Just a quick note of a wonderful blessing that fell upon my eldest chick. Last week she was asked to participate in a shopping excursion by our Pastor's wife. The trip was to buy back-to-school outfits for children in our community. So about 10 of our teens/young adults and Miss Becky hit the Target Superstore. Each was given anywhere from 9 to 15 paper bags with the name, size of the child/teen they were buying for and how many outfits to pick out (2 or 3), including shoes. My chickadee had about 14 bags throughout the 4 hours and was completely wiped out when she arrived home! BUT she was so excited about all the wonderful things she had chosen for each person and so wanted them to be more than pleased with what she found. Even though she could not personally afford to buy all those clothes - she gave of her time, love, and creativity to be part of a blessing to someone else. She in return is seeing where she can do things in a small, but tangible way that will show her love and ultimately the Fathers. Of course not all blessings are as fun as this one (believe me she knows that)! But even this one can bring up feelings of have and have nots. She's learning so much!
Her giving and receiving of this gift was a blessing to me also..... We really never truly know how many people we can touch with a bit of unselfish love.
I'm really done.....I usually don't express what I'm feeling because it doesn't come out near as well as I'm feeling it.....I hope you understand?
