The holidays bring out the best in a lot of people. I can't think of a more charitable time of year. So I agree with this, but I also think it isn't a big of deal as it is during the rest of the year. Let's see who's charitable around April 15th. Do you know what I mean?

Thank you Dorcas! The inspiration is yours!

The singles ministry at Asbury United Methodist will be having a special 'SHOPPING" for single mothers at church Saturday, Dec 1. Children will be able to come in and 'shop' for their mom (free) and then the mothers will be able to come in and pick a gift for each of their children (free) for Christmas. Some Church members will probably volunteer to help with the shopping and others will either donate money to buy gifts or buy gifts themselves.

Hi! I followed a link to your blog from Kevin's blog as well.

I whole heartedly agree with you. It is to easy to get caught up with the cares of the world. Personally, we hope to invite a single mom from a local recovery shelter to share in the abundance that God has given us.

We also plan on really focusing on our family by planning daily family-oriented activities and unplugging from the TV. It may not seem like much but this little family needs it... :)

Hi -

I just noticed your comment over at Kevin's blog. Sorry I didn't get a chance to e-mail you right away, but of course you were free to pass on the idea. It is a challenge I am trying to give myself this year for the holidays ... focus more on the people than the presents.
