Day 5.......And a little child shall lead them...

We had to go to the mall last night to get Hannah's glasses fixed. Jenny's shoes came untied. She is learning to tie but can't quite manage.  So her brother and sister each helped her out.

 I love how they do not think twice about helping someone.  They love to help others.  We are working on finding a way to help out some of the people who stand at the red light and ask for money. We don't have much to offer, but I am working on kits with a bottle of water, a snack, soap, etc etc in it.  So the idea on pinterest.  My kids always ask, can we help them mom? Now I don't carry money on me.  However, once I get our kits together we will keep them in the car and give our fellow man a drink of water at least.  I want them to help others. They love it, and so should we as adults.  My kids see them as someone that needs help. We adults, usually only see them as someone that needs a hand out. Jesus would say help them.  So I am working on a way to do this.  I want to be Jesus' hands extended.  I want to give water to the thirsty and food to the hungry.  I want to make a difference and teach my children you are never to big or too busy to help someone in need.
