Serving Saturday

It was as if God painted this beautiful sky as a reward for us rising to serve him!  The boys and I participated in our church's Serving Saturday by joining in the mobile food pantry.  We did it last year as well and the boys were excited to participate again.  I love seeing them excited about having a purpose!  They both jumped in to help organize the snacks.  They somehow found themselves in the prepackaged snacks department.  Which is surprising considering how healthy they eat at home!  But really, mama tries.  I really do!!

Anyway, they were in their element, sorting between chips and twix bars!  Lincoln looks like a pro dumping out those candy bars as Jackson comes in from behind.  

With help, they sorted this mountain of snacks for the people that were waiting.  Some families had been waiting for their turn since 6am!  I'm so happy that the boys have opportunities to see and help those less fortunate than we are.  As we prayed for the families we were reminded that we weren't here to judge them by the kind of car they drove or what they were wearing.  We don't know what it's like to walk a day in their shoes.  We were only there in love to serve those who showed up!!  

The serving saturday shirts were cool, I loved this verse on them!

With all the politics, hate and unrest in the world... we would do better to remember this more.
We LOVE because he first LOVED US. 1 John 4:19
