A year of giving.
So I was reading a friends blog and she has a theme for each year. This year was a year for adventures then she decided to add giving. I hope she doesn't mind but I am going to steal this idea from her. Not the theme thing but the giving thing. I need to do more service. I need to teach the kids about serving. I do service through my church but not really for the community I live in. Each month me and the kids are gonna pick a different charity or group and provide something or perform a service for that group. It may be as small as donating something or larger like actually performing a service which will require time which seems to always be at a premium for us. So starting in January we will pick our charity for the month and before the end of the month we will decide what we will do. I am excited. I need to teach the kids more about and instill in them a true love for serving others. If they can learn to be humble enough to serve others and if they can lose themselves in serving others and if I can teach them to love giving of themselves I will have left a legacy worth leaving. The best way to teach is to do, so I will do. Charity is the pure love of Christ.
