Just a few of our Christmas things up close and personal. I’ll be sharing a few more in the near future.

I shared a story earlier in December about our church Toy Shop Project for needy families in our community. Our church was able to help 315 families with grocery gift cards and toys for their children. We had over 2000 new toys that we gave away. Our goal was 1800. What a wonderful experience to be able to share in this way in our own community.

I’m so thankful for a quiet week leading up to Christmas. How are your days?

  1. Beautiful images! Wonderful response to the toy drive. We do that at our church every year. Toys, clothes for everyone in the family and everything they need for Cmas dinner. It is a wonderful program that requires lots of volunteers. We start wrapping in the summer!
