Peaches and Chick Peas

I was out somewhere today and noticed a big cardboard box on the floor.  Curious about what it was, I started looking at the words and decorations that adorned it.  It was a box for food bank donations.  Among the food items suggested for donation were chick peas and canned peaches.  Somehow, in looking at those words, I got it.  I knew how wonderful it would be to receive food when one needs it.  I felt what a need that must satisfy.

Whatever situations people find themselves in, the need to eat doesn't change and can't be put aside until the money comes in.  Sometimes, a can of peaches or chick peas can be so important.  It can relieve one of hunger and provide hope.  When we can do so, it seems that giving food is a nice way to help.  How lucky we are to eat.
