With that said: We can all make a "Difference"
Christmas time is a time to love. Families make a special effort to get together.
From near and far, everyone likes to get home for Christmas. It is one of the busiest times of the year.
Gathering together to open presents under a beautifully decorated tree and sitting down to Christmas dinner with Dads, Moms, Aunts, Uncles, children, grandchildren and even our pets gathered around is the ultimate Christmas holiday celebration for many people.
It's the holiday rush. People everywhere making lists, who is getting what this year and who's coming over for Christmas and of course, what to cook! How wonderful it is to be able to do all of this with the ones you love.
I have a challenge for you this holiday season, something to really think about.
I love to watch Extreme Makeover: Home Edition with Ty Pennington on Sundays at 8:00 p.m. It's truly one of my favorite shows because it expresses giving to those who may need it more ;)
I tell you this, I cry at every show I watch. The love, the care that radiates through this show is impossible not to share in that emotion. The way people’s lives are touched and changed. The thing is they are no different than you and me. That could be you, that could be me…is it?
How about sharing some of your blessings with others less fortunate than yourselves? Why not volunteer with an organization for one day to give out presents to children who do not have a home or have parents who cannot afford to buy them a gift. You could also volunteer at a church or organization that gives out food to the homeless. Why not? It’s one day you could make a difference.
"The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40
Take this time to teach your children to think of others less fortunate then themselves. This is a good time to teach them how to really appreciate what they have.
Are you ready to make a difference?
I know this holiday season can be very busy. But next time your walking to your car and you hear the ringing of the bell go to the kettle and put in the change you just got for buying that wonderful expensive gift. Your change can make a difference.
I will also be collecting Toys for the "Toys for tots" program. If you are interested in doing so please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The due date is 12/16 and I would be happy to pick up the toys at your home. The gifts must be unwrapped and in original package. *even a coloring book and crayons would help ;)
Have a Wonderful and Safe Holiday Season.
God Bless You and Your Family.
Merry Christmas !
