An Aaron-Style Hug!

I wish you could have watched the families respond as the nickels and dimes were donated into their accounts yesterday.

It was precious and beautiful and every single one of you who gave deserves an Aaron-style hug. 

Let me tell you he gives amazing hugs.
To you it may seem simple.
Putting money in a grant account.
It isn't simple.  Your gift lifts up and encourages. It buffets against the storm.  It makes the road easier and the way clearer.  Each donation speaks volumes to the recipient. 
You may never know this side of heaven how what you do matters.
It does matter.
Yesterday I watched this video and even though it may be a work of fiction... it's message is profound.  It is three minutes long and I guarantee you will watch it yourself and then you will share it with a friend. 

"Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap.  For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."
