Give more money, Mama!

Micah and I went shopping at Kroger yesterday. (We had to buy more Veggie Tales Snacks!) As we were coming out of the store, we heard the familiar bell ringing that tells me that the Salvation Army was asking for holiday donations. I told Micah that the money was to bring Christmas to people who don't have as much as we do. That we are so blessed that we need to share with those people. I grabbed a handful of coins for Micah to put in the kettle. The man greeted Micah warmly and let him ring the bell. Then Micah put each and every coin in the kettle "for the people," he said. As we left he kept saying, "give more money, Mama." It's so neat to see him developing a heart for people in need.
