Seeing their faces in the pictures reminds me again that all the day-to-day work is worth it. Last night I steamed the labels from 200 shoe boxes then packed them all back up. This morning I loaded the cartons into the car and after school I drove over to church and hauled them all down the steps into the storage room. I need to remind myself often that this is all part of the circle that gets these boxes into the hands of children around the world.
Most of what I do is so mundane--tomorrow I'll drive around to yard sales looking for toys and I'll stop at more Dollar General stores to buy toothpaste and I'll stuff everything in my car until I can get it to storage. It's not glamorous--this work of OCC--but it's rewarding like nothing I've ever done before. Sometimes I feel like God created this amazing ministry just for me. Could that be possible? So precious.
