Thoughts on Giving.
Wow, we've talked alot about giving this week, huh? We've talked about giving our money, our possessions, and a better version of ourselves. I've been so incredibly floored with what a generous group we have here. You guys were actually eager to give this week. Y'all are on fire! I wonder how many blessing bags have been created this week?!
Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. Galatians 6:2
And talk about carrying a burden!... you raised almost $500 for the Hirth's adoption fund. That's a nice chunk out of it. Adoptive parents have so much to think about. Birth families, traumas, paperwork, traveling to a foreign country, and a million other things. We all know what it feels like to worry about money. It feels awful and hangs over your head. I am so glad to relieve a bit of that burden from this family. Thank you so much for your giving. If you haven't donated yet, you still have time. They'll be on until Sunday afternoon, when we switch over to welcome the Narunsky family. Also, think about joining the Dollar Mob if you want to make sure that you give each week. I know it's so easy to forget! Have a good weekend!
