I gotta admit...
ungratefulness has been rearing its ugly head.
I have been working hard to get it in check.
One day I had the kids sit at the computer & watch videos of the kids who live in the garbage dump as I explained how blessed we are...all the kids were in shock.
Out of that came a heart to serve those children.
We feel the best way to provide for those kids is
FEED MY STARVING CHILDREN.
Not just making the meals but paying for them.
So last week Annie made lots & lots of her bracelets.
Then at our garage sale she sat out for 3 days selling them.
My poor husband had to make the booth for her
with scraps from our basement.
Annie loved writing on the chalkboards :)
But even more she loved...
And when I told her she was able to donate 80 meals...
she was thrilled!
And she can't wait for another chance to serve.
I wonder what other good things would come if in moments of "ugliness" I took the time to teach instead of just...well let's call it "preach."
Looks like I learned a lesson too!
