Thankful Thursday, April 9

On occasion, AWANA collects food for the church food bank. We take in cans or boxes of cereal. Sometimes there are other things to give for other organizations, things as simple as toothbrushes or shampoo. I don’t think a whole lot about it, I just figure it’s a nice and easy way to teach the kids to be generous. I don’t know how much they think about it.

It’s a humbling thing to be at the receiving end of generosity. I hope it helps us all learn to be a whole lot more thankful. 🙂
