I gave blood this morning. Took 45 minutes. A small sacrifice. But it makes a big difference. Not a big fan of needles, but there are much worse things to endure in life.
My life was saved by a blood donor. It is my Savior, Jesus. He shed his blood on the cross for me. What a great way to honor his sacrifice.
If you have never given blood, please consider making this small sacrifice. If you haven't given in awhile, find a opportunity to donate. You never know whose life you will save. Maybe one day you yourself will need a transfusion. Pay it forward now. You never know when or how it will be paid back.
Update Our little blood drive at Good Shepherd netted 33 donations. That is enough to help 99 people. Maybe next time we will surpass 100!
