When the cold bit her fingers, you warmed them. When she needed dinner, you helped her get the pot boiling. You gave Hana firewood to save her time and trouble in the winter. This elderly widow couldn’t afford to buy expensive wood for her stove. Normally, she had to go outside each day and collect sticks and branches herself in the midst of harsh weather. Her health suffered. Your gifts purchased wood for her, so she could sit in her home next to a blazing fire instead of searching for kindling in the cold. Who will your gifts warm next?
