52 Weeks of Joy: Week 16

This one was easy. We help out with a group at church called Couples with Kids. Each month, couples from the parish who have kids (hence the name of the group) get together for some teaching, food, fun, etc. Sometimes kids are included, sometimes not. This month we held a food drive at church and put out the word that anyone in need could stop by Sunday afternoon for free, non-perishable food. The generous response from our fellow parishioners was joyful. But we were particularly joyful that we could show our girls how to give. And that we have been blessed with so much. And that God will provide for us, even/especially when we give until it hurts.

Just some of the food!
