I am Blessed. Blessed with 2 kids that have love and compassion in their hearts. And they both continue to amaze me. Sunday we were in church. I had to operate the video screen because the eldest was away. As I was heading back, I took our offering out of my pocket and was trying to hand it to Hunter. He, for some reason, was pulling all his money out of his pocket. (I just saw a bunch of ones.) Not thinking anything of it, I went to the back and sat down. When the ushers were called forward, Hunter went up to help. As they were looking for 1 additional usher, Hunter pulled all his Valentine's money ($9) from his grandma out of his pocket and tossed it in the plate. Afterwards, when he was walking back, he reached into his other pocket and found 2 more quarters and put them in there also. We were stunned.
So after church, the 2 of us were heading out of town and I asked him why he put all his money in there, because it would have been ok to just put a few dollars in there. I was not prepared for the answer. He said, "The church needs it more." How many kids put ALL THEIR MONEY in the church offering plate?! Because the church needs it more? Thank you God for these 2 gems. They may test my patience from time to time, but they melt my heart all the time!
As we were heading out of town, we noticed the clouds and how cool they looked, so I found a spot to pull over for a picture. He said they looked "animated". Animated?! I think they looked like angel clouds. The picture does not do it justice, but the edges were rolled and they reminded me of heaven and the "picture" I have in my head of Angels standing on the clouds looking down at us. I just thanked God for all my blessings.
