Thanksgiving ~ A Time of Giving

Every year I look forward to helping with the Thanksgiving Baskets our church creates and gives out.  A table is set up with paper bags that have tags on them.  Some have 5 cans of Green Beans, 5 cans of Corn, 5 Dessert boxes, 5 Mashed Potato boxes, etc.  Even on my limited income it's something I can participate in and I always grab bags for myself and for my mother.

“At the end of life we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made, how many great things we have done. We will be judged by ‘I was hungry and you gave me to eat, I was naked and you clothed me, I was homeless and you took me in.’ Hungry not only for bread — but hungry for love. Naked not only for clothing — but naked for human dignity and respect. Homeless not only for want of a room of bricks — but homeless because of rejection.” ~ Mother Teresa

I'm always amazed at how giving this congregation is.  The bags get picked up, filled up and returned.  I took this picture when I was dropping off my items this week.  (Wish I had a flash on my phone - I think you get the idea though.)

Thanks for visiting ~ Reia
