Blessing a Day 2009-December 3

I am thankful for the "Do Something Jar."

A few weeks ago I was feeling a little overwhelmed with all the opportunities around us. There are more people to help, and more needs to fill than time and money permits. It is very easy to feel discouraged and feel like that we can't help, or that what we can do won't make a difference.

We were singing a song one morning "Have I Done Any Good in the World Today" and this part of the 2nd verse planted a thought in my mind that grew throughout the day.

"But go and do something today."

By the end of the day I grabbed all the change I could find in the house and put it in a jar. It became the "Do Something Jar." We will fill it, and give it away to whatever or whoever needs it. The jar is halfway full and already there is a need to fill. We will empty it out and start over again. It may not be the complete answer to "Have I done any good in the World Today?" but it is certainly a start.

I am thankful that we have a jar to be able to share something tomorrow.


  1. I am thankful that you take care of me when I am not feeling well. I love you.

  2. I'm really impressed that you're starting up blog #2. Lately it seems I can't think of anything to write at all, let alone manage updates for two ..... go, you!!

    I am thankful for friends who let me borrow their computers. Just saying. :)
