Christmas Wish...

Instead of exchanging gifts with mom, Jimmy, Jill, Kalie and Cole, we all decided that we would bless a family in need this Christmas. We chose a family through KLTY's Christmas Wish program. There were hundreds of wishes to choose from, but for some reason this family stood out to me. The sweet lady who nominated them did such a great job at telling their story. They are a precious family who have had a rough couple of years and didn't know how they were going to provide Christmas for their 3 children...the youngest was born about a week ago! Last Sunday, we spent the afternoon shopping for them and wrapping all of the presents...we had so much fun, especially Kalie and Cole!

Today, we loaded everything up and went to meet the family!
Mom and Jimmy's cars were full of gifts!
And now, their tree that did not have a single present underneath it when we arrived is overflowing with blessings!

My favorite part was meeting the family and seeing their faces light up as we were bringing in all of the gifts...especially the little girl who was just too cute for words! The parents were speechless and so appreciative. After we prayed over them, the father played Silent Night for us on the piano. What a sweet, sweet time. It truly is better to give than receive!
