{Day 47}

Yesterday as I was trying to open a canning jar the top slipped from my hand and fell sticky side to the counter… It got me thinking: Lids fall to the ground messy side down and some lives lay messy side up.  Skinny little ones, with empty bellies, sit hungry in the dirt.  Messy.  There are little hands and feet that are blistered, bruised, and battered and without a mommy to kiss, bandage, and care for them.  Messy.  A tear trail runs through the grim on sad little cheeks.  Messy.  Broken lives that need to be loved.  Donating money helps these orphans.  Find that jar of loose change you have and donate it today to a child in need.  Because messy lives don’t have to stay that way.
