The Spirit of Giving!
It is an incredible day! Thank YOU to those who went over to Trey Morgans site and gave some money to the effort in feeding the people who have nothing. They say that $25 a day can feed the entire group who searches for food there everyday. I was entangled with following the comments as things progressed. You have to read about the 3rd grade class and what the teacher, Mrs. Jahnseske wrote. All my appreciation goes to her and the teachers like her on National Thank a Teacher day!
I chatted with Trey and he didn’t think he would get to $10,000. I knew it could be done and I encouraged him to go for something big! Seems people want to be a part of something big and meaningful. And we are almost there. You can still give to the effort, during this month of giving. Just click the link and read the page and send in your gift. It doesn’t matter the size, and don’t think that your $10 gift doesn’t matter, that’s half a days food supply. I just love how God is using Trey for great things!
Neva Cooper Update
I have been chatting with Neva’s husband Ned via the text message the last few days. Neva is doing much better. Her WBC count is still high indicating she is still fighting something, but, she is doing well enough to sit up and walk the hall. She once again is proving she is a miracle child. You won’t believe her story and once it gets written, it will bring faith, inspiration and encouragment to those who hear.
Today she was eating her Rice Krispies for breakfast when she was told she needed protein. She promptly did what anyone would do, she ordered up an omelete. Shortly after that, the Dr. came in and ordered a test to look around where her spleen was removed and put a kabosh to eating anything else. Oh well! Maybe tomorrow! The prayers worked and she is much better! She’s an incredible lady.
The Question of the Day
I need your help. Why this came to me, in the month of Giving as I proposed, is somewhat suspicious. Have you ever had to give and yet have it questioned on the grounds of an ethical decision?
Let me give you the background and question and you can take it from there. Let’s say a woman with 5 kids (ages 9-21) is an illegal immigrant, whose husband is in jail, and is in need of some financial help. She is a good person, hard worker, and willing to work for her money. She came here legally and two of her kids were born here. She wants to work for YOU to clean your house for some extra income, but, it has to be done “under the table”. Her whole personal economy is done through cash. She has a life here, became a productive member of society and even goes to church. She needs your help and assistance, but at the same time, it is against the law.
What actions do you take? Can you help this woman? What would Jesus do?(This is strictly hypothetical. I had the question posed to me and thought it would be good to discuss.)
