Awakening a Keen Observer

The Presbyterian Church has a way to participate in helping folks and that is to make Kits of basic items to be given to folks in the midst of chaos or trouble.
Here's what some of the kits are to contain:
Health Kit
1 — hand towel
1 — washcloth
1 — comb
1 — metal nail file or nail clipper
1 — bar of soap (bath size)
1 — toothbrush
1 — tube of toothpaste (4-7 oz.)
6 — band-aids

Seal all items in a one-gallon plastic bag with a zipper closure.
School Kit
1 — pair of blunt scissors
Pads or notebooks of ruled paper approximately 8-1/2" X 11"
containing 150-200 sheets of paper
1 — 30-centimeter ruler (12")
1 — pencil sharpener
6 — new pencils with erasers
1 — large eraser
12 — sheets colored construction paper
1 — box of 24 crayons
1 — cloth bag, approximately 12" X 14", with cloth handles
and a closure (Velcro, snap, or button)

Pack all items in the cloth bag and secure contents with the closure.

There is a link to this where they tell the content of the kits and where to send them. Everyone of us could be putting these together.
And it would be a tangible way to say we care.
I thought of this when I washed my face and brushed my teeth this morning.
What will you become 'aware' of today that is normal for you --that so many others don't have?
What will make you say thanks be to God and in that thanks I'll give to someone who needs to be able to say thanks.
And thanks be to God for what we have to share. How blessed we are to have everything to share!
God abide
Be aware
