We found the nearest Walmart armed with tape and quarters!! Nora had so much fun taping the quarters onto the soda buttons.
Half way through, she got a little concerned that she was giving all of her money away and wouldn’t have money left over to ride her favorite carousel. I reminded her of this scripture. Luke 6:38. “Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.” As soon as I finished talking to her about giving, a gentleman walked up and asked if he could give Nora the stuffed animal that she is snuggling in one of these pictures.
Sure, it doesn’t always happen like that... you give and then you immediately receive something, but today it did AND it landed in her lap!
Our shepherds are hanging out in the field, surrounded by light, with the angels today, hearing the good news. Today, we didn’t get to look people in the face and give them something, but we got to love on people anonymously... which happens to be my favorite!! #advent2017 #thinkorange #parentcue #giving #gratitude #love #loveothers #lovegod #christmas #painterstape #quarters #soda #vendingmachine #cocacola #pepsi #merrychristmas
