Three hours later, we received a knock on our door from a women in need of food for her children. We went through our pantry and pulled out a few items that would help her out. It just made us realize that we really need to be better prepared for these types of things. It made me realize we have been a bit selfish in our shopping habits and have only been purchasing what we needed. The next time we go shopping, it will definitely include some items like rice, beans and powdered milk for times like this.
The best part is God's Perfect Timing. Butch was knowledgable enough in his Spanish to be able to understand her need and God provided the funds and realization that this is going to be a continuous void we can help fill. It may be just a little at a time, but this is where relationships begin. Our opportunity to share the Love of God and become more connected with our community. What a joy to be used in such a way. It may not seem like much to us who have more than we need, but we have no idea the impact it can have on His Kingdom. This is just the beginning!
