Loaves & Fishes




When my kids come home and tell me there's nothing to eat and they're 'starving' I correct them and say...

"No you're not, you're just hungry." 

They don't know what it's like to be starving...

I don't know what it's like to be starving...

I don't know what it's like to open the refrigerator and see nothing but empty white shelves.
 
I don't know what it's like to open the pantry and have it be bare.
 
I can't imagine going to bed at night so hungry I couldn't sleep.
 
It angers me that we live in a world where this is real...

Every.Single.Day.  It blows my mind...

Today we made a difference...

12 Families & 28 kids...

100 sandwiches, 120 bags of baked ;) chips & 100 bags of candies...


 

 
 
 

 

We didn't change the world by any means.  But tonight we knew that there were a few less hungry people in this world. 

Tonight we went to bed smiling, knowing that together we fed 100 people.

4 out of 10 of them being children.  That's right, 4 out of 10 people facing hunger are children. 

Today our children learned a life lesson that can't be taught within the walls of the school.
 
It can only be learned in the book of life.
