because both the boys were wearing red, and the groomer gave Mussy red bows and a bandana; I thought we should have a picture. Brad took these. I love the bottom one =)
and finally, FINALLY, I got up the nerve to take some treats to one of our neighbors! I added a little note with my name and "Wilson's Mom" along with our phone number. They have a daughter in Wilson's class.
I've mentioned how much the tragedy in Haiti has been heavy in my heart. I have been going round and round with God about what my role here in GA has to do with what is happening there... and elsewhere (such as Africa) for that matter. I've been nearly overwhelmed with the sense that we are wealthy in this scenario. We -in America- are wealthy. And I believe God is still going to be working this out in my heart, in my mind, and in my soul. But meanwhile, He kept prodding me to love my neighbor. I kept fighting Him on it. For various reasons, but they were all just disobedience deep down. And while a plate of monster cookies didn't solve the world's problems, walking down the block did remind me that sometimes I just have to do the little things first. He is faithful and I trust Him to lead me well.
"And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this, 'YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.' There is no other commandment greater than these."
