What's Mine is Yours

  You gotta love this precious, African orphan, Anna as she insistently tries to share a tiny scrap of food with her friend and mattress mate, Marvin.  The little guy put out a valiant effort to accept her gift. I don't think he ever did get any of it into his hand, much less into his mouth.
    But it is a sweet exchange that reminds me of how God expects and applauds the same from us. To open our hand to the poor and needy, to those that have less than us, even if we might not have an abundance of wealth to fall back on for ourselves. 
   Compassion International and Love Mercy Uganda are two opportunities for you to live like Anna and share.
