Last week at church, the Sunday School children were given a box of Conversation Hearts, except they were "SERVING HEARTS."
Any time Mark did something helpful, or "had a serving heart," he could have one.
Throughout the week, he did several nice, serving things, like holding Adam's hand all the way across the parking lot going into church, helping pick up... He worked hard for his "serving hearts."
This morning at church, he did a little more. Walking in to church, he ran up to a mom of mostly-grown kids, threw his arms around her, and said, "I got more than TWO serving hearts this week!" I didn't even know he knew LeeAnn, though it turns out that she was the one who went from class to class telling the kids -- from preschool class all the way up -- about this Serving Hearts project. :) He remembered...
Then, in the hall going to Sunday School, he had a huge hug for Carrie, one of the moms who is regularly in his Sunday School class. He told her, "I'm so glad to see you!" Turns out that today, Carrie was doing children's sermon in church because all of the kids older than preschool were in service with their families today. And she mentioned how good it felt when one of the children came up and gave her a big hug today. And I was so proud that it was my very huggy little guy.
He also hugged some of his friends from the men's Bible study, his best friend Chaleen, and a bunch of other people too.
I'd say he had a Serving Heart today.
