So proud.......
February 17, 2011 01:52AM
I am so proud of my 14 yr old daughter. For her 8th grade community project they are providing a day of lunches for the
homeless shelter. All the kids needed to bring in different items for the lunches. They needed to be turned in today, well alot of the kids have blown off the assignment. She came home and said she couldn't believe that they didn't want to help someone in need. Doesn't understand that since she knows that we are suppose to help them because that what Jesus wants us to do. Over the last year we haven't had alot but what we have we will share. She is ashame of her classmates and can't understand how kids can be that way.
I saw God in my daughter today. That she is so passionated about helping and loving others.

God is not angry with you. He loves you.
If you don't believe that,
or think it's too good to be true,
or that I'm making it up - ask Him! smiling smiley

Praise God - for the heart of a 'child' that will serve. A 'child' shall lead them.

A 'child' like heart.

UPDATE: the kids put together 369 lunches today so they can take to the homeless shelter tomorrow. My daughter got picked
to be one of the students that gets to deliver them. They didn't make their goal of 500 lunches but did a good amount. Happy Dance

Very proud of them.

that is really neat to see. Learning to be focused outside of yoursefl is so important and neat to see someone so young learning it.

What everyone said!

Oh, Toni, it's one of those moments in your life when you have to pause and give yourself a hug. Because she wouldn't have that good heart, if she'd had a different sort of mother.

Yeah, absolutely awesome! Toni, you do need that pat on the back. How's your girl feeling about the whole deal now? Is she excited that she got to bless others?

She felt good about it. She also felt sad that some people have to live like that. She also said that some of the kids that
went were very moved by it. So Papa was in the house yesterday. Most of Steph's friends are anti religion, but they
understand that something had happened.

Awesome! I pray that they may equate the love displayed with the God of Love, not the God of religion grinning smiley
