A little dose of reality

Two months ago. I hurriedly wrote out a birthday check for Asimo (my Compassion International child.)

I didn't think much about it.

I even forgot about it.

It wasn't much.

It was $10.00.

Less than I spend on groceries I throw out when cleaning the fridge weekly.

Less than I spend each week on coffee.

Less than I spent for ingredients to make an apple cheesecake that I dropped  on the floor and completely ruined today before it went into oven (more on this later).

Thinking it would get her a new hair bow.

or some new socks.

Or a coloring book and new crayons.

Then I got the letter today.

Thanking me for the birthday gift.

The family bought two hens and a guinea fowl.

... and she wrote "May the loving God keep blessing your hands for the love you have for me"

$10!

That is so cool. We forget how far a little cash will go sometimes. Great inspiration today.
