Love Is...

By: Heather Wilson Co-Founder GiveSendGo on | Comments: 2
-Love is tying a shoe for the 30th time 
-Love is making dinner,  just sitting down and needing to get up to get someone seconds.
-Love is listening to screams that they hate you, but not giving in because you know they need boundaries.
-Love is mountains of clothes to wash, that are literally never ending.
-Love is sacrificing your Saturday to go watch a baseball game.
-Love is giving hugs and kisses to kids lined up in a row needing a little affection they were never shown.
-Love is endless hours of doctor, dentist, 
and counseling appts. 
-Love is learning to discern the lie and sticking to the consequences. 
-Love is hours of washing hair, braiding, brushing out the snarls.
-Love is knowing you are being manipulated and still being kind.
-Love is ignoring the looks and whispers at the grocery store as your family does not look “normal”.
-Love is hours of homework, tears, letters to teachers to get back on track. 
-Love is a bed time story, with an anticipated kiss and hug.
-Love is being woken up way before your alarm clock every day because they don’t want to sleep in. 

Most of all what I have learned in this new foster season we are in ... Love is Action. 

It is not how I feel. It is not what I say. 

It is all the things I do that don’t always seem to matter. Love is Action.

Shooting in Florida

By: GiveSendGo on | Comments: 0

Our team at GiveSendGo is so saddened and our hearts are heavy with the recent news of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.  It is easy to live in fear when you see and hear devastating news like this. The question runs through our mind, "what if it were my child?", and for over 17 families the unthinkable has happened, they sent their child/spouse to school on a random Wednesday morning and they won't be returning home. There are no easy platitudes or saying that will take away the pain and hurt of this situation.  So, as believers we ask ourselves, "what should be our response?"   I believe it is ok to be angry. It is ok to vocal about what changes you think need to happen to prevent this from happening again. It's ok to feel saddened and scared, but that should not be the end of our response.   

As Christians we have Hope. We have a love that can change people's lives.  We do not have to live in fear or anger. We need to live making the most of every day given to us. Sharing Jesus to the people sitting beside us on the bus, to the person behind us in line, to the poor, sick, to the struggling teen wandering our neighborhood.  We need to be God's hands and feet. EVERYDAY. Not just during tragedy. Not just when there is a lot of media surrounding something.  EVERYDAY asking God to bring someone in your path that needs to know His life changing, world altering, love. 

Don't be vocal just to argue your point. Arguments don't fix problems. Action does. 

Take action today. 
Love someone that feels unlovable. 
Be Jesus to the hurting.
