"... let's not merely say that we love each other;
let us show the truth by our actions."
1 John 3:18
As I teach my kids to be thankful for all God provides, it naturally comes up that others do not have the same things we do. Clean water ... food every day ... a warm bed to sleep in... not everyone has that, and we are thankful we do.
But it doesn't stop there.
One day, as I explained that we can help others, one of my kids (who is particularly sensitive to spiritual matters) said, "I want to help now" He pushed me to discover how we can work to help NOW.
I love that kid...
So, our 'love in action' looks like this:
1: We sell our baking to friends and family
2: With those funds, we buy groceries to give to the local food bank
|My son inspects their creation|
Ideally, we would then be able to help in that food bank. Looks so far like that won't be a possibility, but we can tour the facility - maybe even on a distribution day - so these young ones can get a better understanding of how they can make a difference and how we can help each other.
... so if you are close friend or family reading this, you may get a visit with our order form in the next week or two ... (and if we miss you but you'd like to contribute, let me know!)
I'm excited to share more with you as we bake like crazy, and live love.
