What did I learn today.
There are 10,000 faces I did not know, that were in my town today. I think I saw more faces today passing me then I have since I was born, right here in my community.
Those who are in most need have the most giving heart. Today, my sister told me about a couple and their 3 year old son she met, and many others like them, that called for Caitlin with a one dollar bill in their hands and a little pocket change, and apologized for not being able to give more. Their car was beat up, and almost broken completely. Their faces were low and their clothes were dirty, and they looked like they had nothing. But they still handed her what they had. And with a smile on their face, a smile from their little boy, and smiles and thank you’s from them for the opportunity to give, they drove on.
Now, every time I pass a car, I wonder if I met them this day. I wonder if it was them that stopped, and thought-small, and gave. This idea, that they might be just them, has captivated me.
It is so different when you put on your own fundraiser to help you get somewhere to help others. I’ve done a fundraiser before, but not for me personally, and for something that is so dear to me – the street children in Colombia.
It is a beautiful thing I witnessed today, and I’m happy with the outcome.
Today changed my life. Thanks to all those who came out and gave their free time to help out! And thanks to all those who gave!
[I appologies for not that many photos. I was busy enough to actually remember to take photos ;) But, I've learned, sometimes, you just need to experience something yourself.]
Win a Thousand Dollars!
So, Donald Miller posted this on his blog a few days ago, and not until today did I find out about it. No, I do not stalk Donald Miller and read every word of his blog everyday. ;) The person that I do rely on for this type of amazing information is the beloved Andrew Stonestreet. My brother is great.
So he told me he wanted to film a video. So we are. And that is the end of that news. That is all that needs to be said.
So, if you want to check out more information, go here, you little flipsters!
The video interview is official finished, and ready for some watchers. I am so excited to release this to you all, it has inspired me so much to study more in film, and I’m looking forward to what is coming in the future!
Please, support John if you can. He needs $7000 dollars by April 1st. Also, please pray for him as he travels, as he lives, that God would bless his time there, give him everything he needs, and show him a new part of Himself while he is there. Thank you!
Also, if anyone needs a videographer, please email me and let me know, I would be honored: stephenstonestreet(at)gmail(dot)com.
And last, but not least, the video.
