Aim Right doesn’t get a lot of letters that accompany donations. However, there were two that came recently that I believe I can share in an anonymous enough way that is appropriate for a blog.
Letter One (more like a note, really):
I am late to an auction donation. Sorry. I was fighting with God. But this is not really mine. It’s yours.
It was with regret that I was unable to attend your recent auction due to a commitment made in December. The first time I attended your auction was February 7, 1998. Back then, this event was in the church and how excited I was to win the bid on a white wicker rocker which I still use.
Seems through these many years, I haven’t missed many times. It is a neat time to now sit under the tent — arriving early and staying till the end. Have acquired several quilts, miscellaneous items, and silent auction treasures besides cheese and bologna. My hope is that this year’s event was a success.
Then I also read this “letter” from Mark this week:
“And He sat down opposite the treasury and watched the people putting money into the offering box. Many rich people put in large sums. And a poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which make a penny. And He called His disciples to Him and said to them, ‘Truly I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the offering box.’ “
