Back in November our CC co-op participated in a community outreach project. The families put together 1 gallon bags for the homeless which contained basic essentials, some snacks, a list of local shelters and organizations for assistance, Bible verses and a note or drawing from each child. My daughter wanted to continue to hand out bags so it is our goal to pass out 2 bags a month. Below is a picture of the bag we created together. As we were shopping I let her pick out most of the things to place in there.
The bags remain in my car within her reach so that if we happen to be driving past someone in need she can easily hand it out. Isn't that a wonderful way to share God's love? It also ties in with a side study of the Fruits of the Spirit that we're doing as a family. We pick one fruit, focusing on it for two weeks and asking God for guidance as we put in into practice. This week (and next) is kindness.
In Week 25 my Little Toughie got to sew on a button. She didn't want to sew a button onto just anything though. She was very selective about which article of clothing she wanted to sew the button onto. Below is my little girl at work.
|Viola! Little red button is secure.|
This week we also finished reading Little House in the Big Woods. My daughter was amazed that it was a true story and can't wait to read the rest of the books in the series. Our Bible studies continue into the life of Jesus. With that, have a wonderful week and may you walk in His light and share His fruit with others.
