I cheered just as loudly as my girls when we got the word last night that school was cancelled today due to the ice. I had been secretly hoping it would be when I went to the store earlier in the day and bought stuff for my daughters to bake--just in case.
But, as I woke this morning, I couldn't help but think of the 60 kids that Lovepacs helps to feed in Aubrey. And I began to worry. Their parents probably weren't able to go to the store and buy chocolate chips and butter. They may not have extra food at home--just in case there's no school. They were probably depending on school today so they could have breakfast and lunch.
I don't want to suck the joy out of an unexpected holiday, but my heart is heavy every time I think of them at home without enough food. Would you join me in praying for them? Since we don't know who they are, I just picture my daughters' faces as I pray. I'm praying for full bellies and warm beds and most of all, for them to feel loved and known and not forgotten.
