The Little things

I am so thankful for the things that God has provided for me and my family. The things that you take for granted all the time. Shelter, food, clothes. He showed this to me this morning while helping out in the classroom today. A young girl's grandmother just got custody of her and her brothers and sisters. They have nothing, the poor children were homeless...in America. I know it happens and it's a reality but it's something I never think about. Or even think that would happen to me. This girl doesn't have shoes, had no clothes, nothing. It made me think how lucky I am. I have all this and I don't even realize how fortunate my family and I are. I think that this little girl is smaller the Aubrey or about the same size, I need to go through her stuff to see if there is anything that will fit her... 

Thank you Lord for everything you have given to me and my family.
