Its the most wonderful time of the year....

Nothing makes my heart warmer than seeing a person get what they truly need. Today our small group delivered presents to a family who was not able to provide Christmas presents for their family. We had the joy of shopping together as a small group and gathering to have a wrapping party to prepare the gifts for delivery. Not only was this a wonderful opportunity to gather as a group during the holidays, but a chance to touch lives. If you have the resources to participate in an Adopt a Family program, I highly suggest doing it. Seeing the happiness and relief in the faces of the people we were helping was the best present I could get this year. Reflecting on this experience reminds me that the purpose of this holiday is not about checking things off a 'to do' list, but celebrating the birth of our Lord and the love He gives us all year round. I feel blessed to be able to take part in an experience like this. God bless!
