The beauty of Service

Yesterday I spend my day in Samantha's school. I volunteer to help in a school "sale" the sale was of little trinkets for the kids and the money was tickets they earned by behaving, being safe and respect others, it was very nice, many kids came with up to 16 tickets, others with just one, this ones got a colorful pencil.

Well Sam got two, so she took home a coloring pencil, very cute.

I got the best of all the gifts they had there, I collect a dozen of thank yous , and few "You are so nice" I even got a hug, but the best of all was a thank you from Samantha:
Sam: Thank you mommy
Mom: For what?
Sam: Thank you for helping the kids get their toys. They were very happy. Thank you very much Mommy.

This just brought tears to my eyes, she was happy I helped.
Scripture of the Day

"Bring ye all the tithes
into the storehouse, that
there may be meat in mine house,
and prove me now herewith,
saith the Lord of hosts;
if I will not open you the
windows of heaven, and pour
you out a blessing, that
there shall not be room enough
to receive it

-Malachi 3:10-
