We had a great family get together today to celebrate birthdays and send off my brother on his next adventure. One of the things we talked about was the recent Halloween antics. It reminded me of something the priest said yesterday at All Saints Day mass. The church had a “Trunk or Treat” event. Participants met in the parking lot, decorated their vehicles, and passed out candy to the kids who came. The priest said there were a lot of children who came dressed as saints. At one point, he walked around with his bag of candy to hand out. A little girl dressed as a nun looked at him and the bag of candy he was offering. But, instead of taking the goodies, she took candy out of her own bag and put it in his. That was a very sweet story.
I Found God today in a generous child.
