I have learned that not all people like to craft.

So we took care of the fundraiser at Lilly's school for $21.
Then Anna and Lilly talked about the dog treats. Lilly decided on 3 bags. Anna and I guessed $21. We have cats so its a guess. We will go up to the amount but not over. This is a budget.
We went to Kmart and they were having several sales so this is what we got for $20.30. I helped with the math and she chose the ones with the happiest dogs on the front.
We also gave $30 to a Christmas store at our church.
Then we purchased a toy for the salvation army toy drive with the remainder.

We put aside $100 for good causes this December. I handed it to my oldest and said "Here is $100." You should have seen the smile. Then I told her that we have this money to help others. We have to figure out what we can and can't help with this month.
She then started making a chart of what we wanted to help out:
Church Gift Shop - for teens
Humane Society - Blankets and Dog Treats
Lilly's School Fund Raiser
Salvation Army -toys
She made some allocations and we talked about what we had already promised to do.
Here is her chart:

With the adventure gone, did my faith go with it? No. My world view changed, not my faith. Honestly I did not like a lot of the adventure of our time in India. I dreamed of what I have now. Yet now I dream of adventure like India? I know of a REAL God, who holds our hand. He is good, 100% good. Evil exists in this world and he holds our hands when it is near. He fights it off if it gets too near. He sees more than we see. He knows more than we know. He cares.
India was a part of our lives, a place to reset our world view to one that is more useful to God. The work we did in India is a foundation that has grown and matured and is still impacting India. India changed us and we changed India both for God's kingdom.

I have pulled up half our garden because we want to top dress it with some compost. After a while it looks like you have a soil thief because the plants suck up the nutrients in the soil.
