Give this Christmas Away.....

Sorry I haven't been able to blog much this week, but I have been busy helping with the local toy drive.  I  felt honored to help in this cause this year.  In years past, I had always been too busy to be able to be a part of this, but this year our schedule opened up and my husband and I were able to help.  Our fire department hosts this toy drive every year.  The leaders of this are friends of ours.  We feel helping in this was a priveledge.  Yesterday, I had the opportunity to help pass out the toys to the families and it was just an awesome experience.  It was so great to see the smiles on those parents' faces.  They were all kind and warm and very grateful.  I praise God that our community gave this year, in order for these families to have gifts for their children under the tree this year.  I thought of a wonderful song that came out last year and wanted to share it with you all. 

Have you thought about giving of yourself during this season?  There are many ways to give this year.  You can give money or food to a local food bank,  volunteer at a local shelter, or just make cookies for a neighbor who may be alone during this Christmas.  GIVE THIS CHRISTMAS AWAY!!!!! 


  1. Every year we take toys to the fire station. We started doing this when my oldest was about 2 1/2 as he loved firemen. He had a hat and vest he wore all. the. time! I never thought about it before, but maybe next year, we can drop our toys and goodies off where your dh works! It would be fun to do that where we actually know someone! We love being able to give! :)

  2. Renee,
    We would love to have you guys come to our station next year. My hubby loves to show kids the station and all the trucks and gear. Thank you for giving, believe me it does make a big difference in these children's lives.
