December 1

Tomorrow is December first, day 1 ofthe 25 days of giving. I have been thinking about what we are going to do. This week is range week for my husband so unless I really need the car it isn't going to happen, and there is nothing I need the car for. So that limits me to what I can do in my neighborhood. I think we are going to bake some pumpkin cookies and Ayden can make some cards and we will deliver cookies on the door steps of neighbors with note to pay it forward this holiday season.

What are you planning on doing?

  1. I gave a gift card to a woman who looked like, in the grocery aisle, that she could use a helping hand. She had a little boy with her and they were buying very simple, basic foods like bread and milk. I then watched as she went over and bought a carton of cigarettes with it. I have had to ask God and myself "Why?" many times, but I know the answer even though I don't want to admit it--giving is more about the act and what it does in our lives, and obeying God's voice as He calls us to something. It's always hopeful that it will help in the end--but I think God does so much in our hearts when we give and let go ourselves! And who knows? I thought maybe that carton of cigarettes could end up helping her cope with the days ahead, and it's possible that she is a better mother in other ways. Or maybe it prevented her from buying street drugs instead. Who knows, I'm ok with letting go and letting God.
