They were told that Jesus is the reason for Christmas, and we were giving them these gifts to show that someone does love them. They do matter, they are important, they are somebody. Not just to Jesus but to us as well. I hope they took the message to heart.
I feel truly blessed to be part of this church. The Pastor challenged us at the beginning of the season to give ourselves away this year. The giving was so much more rewarding than receiving. I hope everyone who's reading this had a wonderfully warm and blessed holiday, I surely did!
