Colin helped me with the trash bin pickup endeavor for the first time today. it made me laugh how completely enthused he was to tag along and help however he could, and at the same time how clueless he was as to what we were doing or why. eventually though, he did ask. "no one likes to pick these up when they get home," I explained. "so we're picking them up to show people God's love in a simple way." it seemed to satisfy him, and his enthusiasm never waned - although he did lose focus and breath a few times. what a blast to do together with one's son.
made cards to drop in the bottom of the returned bins. likely never to be seen, but that way if God wants to draw someone's attention to his love, it may help. not like he needs help, but he seems to welcome it from us, it seems to me.
