Christmas is Coming!

Yes, Christmas is right around the corner and will be here before you know it!  Yay!!!  But, it's so easy to get wrapped up in all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season and forget the real meaning. This season, we are starting a new tradition in our family. We are going to make an effort to reach out to others in need and share Christ's love by sending Christmas gifts to children. There are so many ways to do this. To name a few, Operation Christmas Child, Toys for Tots, and Angel Tree. I’m sure there are others, too! Whichever one(s) you choose, get involved!!!  Put a smile on a child's face this Christmas and share with those in need. Often times the “little” we think we have is so much more than what a lot of others have. It's a small sacrifice that really blesses children. Jesus gave us the greatest example of giving by offering his life as a ransom for us!

John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

What a fun way to get your kids involved and teach them to share with others! Be sure to check out the links below! These organizations make it so easy to give in a more tangible way than just a monetary donation. With some of these, you can actually go shopping for the kids and give them something they really want!  Get busy now so you don’t miss out!
