We adopted a family for the holiday season. The boys spent their hard earned money on satisfying the wish list provided for us. It totally blessed my heart to watch them think about the gift and what THEY would like not just what they wanted to give. We don’t know much about them except it is a 20 year old boy who has custody of his two brothers 8 and 13. Their parents died in a car accident. When I had told Jim we were doing this he jumped right on board with, “are you fixing them food? What? Why not a bigger ham?” A heart, big heart.
So, we laid hands over the gifts today and prayed for these young men as a family before taking them to where they will be delivered.
I pray each year my kids will see that giving truly is the gift.
