Helping the Poor

We (my toddler, my 12 year old) and I went and delivered food to the poor and needy last night. Growing up with a heart to volunteer, I want to instill in my 12 year old son, William that life isn't all about what you can get for yourself but that it's about loving and giving of yourself to others. Truly, the only way I came up with the help of Jesus Christ of course is by showing him and having him help me with my Hope Alive Inc. Food Ministry.
It was around 8:30pm by the time we got out of the house. You know how it can get with a baby in tow. Getting all our stuff into the van is a feat within itself. Diaper bag, milk bag, my purse and all our jackets. Every time I have to go somewhere, I think of the big chore it is to get all of us ready... Sometimes, when I get lazy- I just end up not going... Oh well. I'm only human. lol
Off we go to meet up with a Single Mom with 2 kids at the neighborhood WalMart over by Chickasaw and Lake Underhill. We met there and bless her heart, this Mom always helps me out delivering food to another Single Mom. It's been a blessing to be able to help other single moms.
I've been down this now, this is my 2nd year in this Food Ministry. Every time I don't feel like doing it, I just remember how awful it was to not have food for myself and my kids. Jesus just gives me a nudge and thank God I have the strength through the Holy Spirit to keep moving...
Well, I will continue my story later... I have to work in my full time business... Telecommunications. Have a blessed day! Remember to pray. God loves you. Jesus Christ is there in your heart. :)
