"Don't you just love to watch the look on people's faces when they open a fift from you? You become the bearwr fo a happy oment for the folks you care about, and it just couln't feel better! When their happiness brings you great joy and satisfaction you are experiencing the blessing of GIVING. ~ T.J. Mills"
It is so easy to give this time of year, but we need to remember the other 11 months of the year. Years ago I use to work in a nursing home. During December it was overwhelming with all the request we had to bring in food, come in and sing etc. It was really sad when we had to turn down these request. What was even sadder was the fact that the other 12 mos of the year many of the resident had no visitors.
I know that it is hard for some people to visit a nursing home, but there are many people we can show the blessing of giving. Remember the shut in neighbor, the widow at church and anyone else who may not have many visitors all year long. Let's show them the blessing of giving all year long, not just at Christmas.
