We are gearing up for the holidays. As a child, I hated Christmas. We were poor. It was a big disappointment to get one present and it was usually a shirt or something that I really needed. As an adult I love Christmas. I am trying to teach my kids the true meaning Christmas. Today was one of those lessons. Tim has a co-worker who is going through a divorce. He has 5 kids ages 5 through 14. We went though all our Christmas decorations and boxed up all the items that were not broken. We also made some coconut balls, chocolate dipped pretzels and strawberries. With the boxed decorations and the home made goodies, we surprised his co-worker and made his house a bit more Christmasy. I am so grateful we have enough to share with others. I am grateful for the love we have the opportunity to share with others. God is good.
