I bought gas for someone who asked me for a few bucks at the gas station. My daughter was beaming when I did it. It was worth every penny.

You know-I have a couple people stand out to me and inspired my life. My dad, mom, pastor and pastor's wife. I have looked up to them. They are really apart of the Lovewell's family. LOL

Many of the staff who work at my school give generously to our local community (we had a BIG food drive for the local food bank this year), as well as give specifically to members of our school community.  A couple of us have decided to "adopt" a new family we've just met---the little boy doesn't have adequate clothing.  I  bought some new pants and shirts and socks for him, washed and dried them at home, and one day had the chance to help him change his dirty, worn out socks (they'd started out white, but were turning grayer by the day, and not smelling too good).  I was helping him tie his shoes, and asked if he would like to have a different pair of socks to wear.  At first he only wanted white socks (of course, the new ones I'd bought were black), but I asked him to try them, because I thought they'd feel soft on his feet.  He was so delighted with the socks, and exclaimed "they're warm and cozy feeling!"  He also said, "they smell good---like flowers!"  It was a simple thing, something I could easily afford to do, and it made him smile the most joyful smile---I was blessed in that moment tenfold.  I told one of my co-workers about it, and she went out and bought some clothes too.  We have gotten permission from the dad (a very nice hard-working man, but just very, very poor) to gather up some clothing for his son, and are having a great time doing it.  My coworker has had a tough year herself, with some family struggles and depression, and she said shopping for the little guy really lifted her mood as well.  I don't know who is getting the most out of this "adoption", but it doesn't matter---it's all to the glory of God.
