My friend Bonnie sent this to me....worth looking into. I'll be checking it out.
As you reflect this Thanksgiving on all the ways God has blessed you this past year, please read on to learn how you can say thank you in a tangible way by helping those who will not feast on Thanksgiving Day. “About 25,000 people die each day from hunger or hunger-related causes, most of them children.”
You can make a difference by going to http://www.freerice.com/ (the source of the previous quote). By playing their vocabulary building game, you can donate 10 grains of rice for every correct answer.
The Web site checks out at http://www.snopes.com/inboxer/charity/freerice.asp as being legit. They report: “On 7 October 2007, the first day of the site’s operations, only 830 grains were donated. As of 17 November 2007, the number of grains of rice given away amounts to 2,457,120,420.”
The game has 50 levels of difficulty. The Web site says it is rare for people to get above level 48.
May your celebration of Thanksgiving be blessed with the riches of family and friends and His presence.
Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.
