Light the World 2018


 Last night as a family we discussed how we were 
going to participate in the Church's Light The World Campaign.
But first we talked and discussed several questions:
How can we bring light and love to others this Christmas season?
How can we emulate God's light more in our countenances?
And then we decided we'd try really hard as a family to be more
considerate of family members needs.
Or as Charlotte would say, "Do what others want first."

Claire told our family that she and Jane knew of a boy 
who sits near them at lunch everyday.
Jane described him to us as quiet and different.
He talks to himself and prefers to be alone.
Some days the girls notice that he doesn't have lunch and
frequently comments on the contents of the girls lunches.
Claire suggested we make him a lunch tomorrow,
 and maybe possibly for for the rest of year.
I can't think of a better way to light the world than through food.
Tonight after the Little Nies were upstairs getting ready for bed, I 
made six sack lunches. 
 I make five lunches every night anyway so
what's one more?
I am proud of my beautiful girls who will share God's love and light,
and a meal with this boy at school today.
