Spend some time talking about and praying with your husband about giving. There are a bazillion good ministries out there that could use your financial support and the end of the year is just around the corner (with it’s 2010 tax benefit). Aside from ministries, there are likely to be folks who could use a little help with food or gifts. And don’t forget the non-money kinds of giving. There are lonely folks that would love to share a meal with your family or that could use a hand shoveling snow off their walkway. Gifts of kindness (let a car into traffic on a busy day) and gifts of grace (forgive that rascally relative of yours) are especially good.
We’re thinking about bringing a big plate of cookies and goodies to our local EMS building on Christmas Day (it’s just up the street from us). These local heroes are missing time with their families and friends. The least we can do is spoil them a bit.
Every time we love, every time we give, it’s Christmas. Dale Evans
