I should use them to be more productive, but I really enjoy just sitting in the peaceful quiet.
Oh, I did do a little online Christmas shopping this morning, and I stretched a little, and read a little news (dumb idea, almost ruined my peaceful morning) but I prefer to just sit here and think, dream...
I've been thinking a lot about those less fortunate then me and what I can do for them this holiday season, and well, every day. I decided the other day that maybe I'll start crocheting scarves to donate to the local shelter. There are a couple of fundraisers coming up for it too that I'm going to try to support (eating pancakes is easy!) My two churches collect food and such for the their local food banks. I could do more to support that. But all this just never seems like enough. I want to do more but I just haven't figured out what more is yet. The Bible study I'm doing right now talks about giving more than just what can go in a stocking or under a tree. We need to give them place at our table, room in our lives. That's what I want to do. I want to invite more people into my life, I want to make room for those in need in my life. I just need to figure out how exactly to do that.
So, what do you do to help the poor? How are you making a difference in the world? How are you inviting people to the table and making room for them in your lives?
