Operation Christmas Child & Being Thankful

One of my absolute favorite things about Christmas since last year has been Operation Christmas Child. I have a desire in my heart for Children’s Ministry. Right now though I prefer working with children under the age of 2 that cannot really speak yet but that’s a story for another day.
I was able to purchase items for 4 children – 1 boy and 1 girl Age 5-9 and 1 boy and 1 girl age 10-14 at the dollar store.
I am so blessed by God and it is a good thing to be able to help out children in need. I specifically decided not to get things for children under 5 because so many people focus on the younger children and I believe that older children need something for Christmas too.
If you can, I would encourage you to do something for someone in need of hope and love especially this holiday season. It may be donating a few dollars to a local homeless shelter to feed people during Thanksgiving and Christmas, Operation Christmas Child, saying a little prayer for the less privileged in the world or anything that you want to do.
I will post pictures of my gift boxes and a list of items I put in each box in a separate post.
Just remember in everything give thanks and appreciate the people in your life because they are worth way more than material things.
