Not just now, but the whole year long.
The Lord has done great things for us, & we are filled with joy. ~Psalm 126:3
And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. ~Romans 5:5

I couldn't have done it alone.................20 shoeboxes packed for Operation Christmas Child.
If you aren't familiar with this program check out Samaritan's Purse.
Such a great ministry they have going & not just for Christmas but ALL throughout the year.
We always pack shoeboxes as a family but this year I thought it would be fun to get others
involved & make it a community project with the home school group we are a part of.
Get this.....I ordered 20 empty boxes having no idea how many item donations
I would have coming in. We had a packing party this past week & we were
able to fill exactly 20 boxes!
How AWESOME is that!
God is truly in the details! 20 happy kids across the globe will have Jesus
shared with them this Christmas because of a few sweet families & their
hands of generosity. And if you haven't heard Matthew West & Amy Grant's
duet "Give This Christmas Away" check it out. Better yet watch the video at the end of
this post which has footage of shoeboxes being distributed to kids around the world.
Makes my heart happy!
