Today we spent our morning time being present with the kids at the homeless shelter. They were so happy to see us and we are really developing a connection with them. They were very engaged with the games we played and the songs we sang. Each day you see more and more of their generous hearts that they have been guarding so often in their lives. I look forward to continuing to lift them up to the Lord and tell them how truly special they really are to the world.
In the afternoon we helped to distribute food at a food pantry for individuals with food insecurities. This same facility also serves a hot meal to the homeless once a week as well. As people passed by choosing from available items you saw how grateful they were to be receiving help and even towards the end when certain foods were gone and there were more people in line…..we didn’t have enough for everybody, my heart was breaking. So we offered them all we had left at our part of the food pantry…..extra plastic grocery bags. The amazing thing is…..they were glad to at least get that to keep things in later tonight or tomorrow or the next day.
The lesson I’m taking with me from today is this…do whatever you can, for whoever can, whenever you can, wherever you are…because whatever you can do it will be something someone else needs and never forget your actions DO make a difference in this world.
Peace to you.
