Time to think of others

Saturday, December 18, 2010

Tis the season to be jolly. But there is people out there who won;t have a christmas. Moreless a christmas dinner. While were out there shopping. Either for our christmas dinner or buy gifts.
Why not pick something extra up and drop it off at your local salvation army.Either a extra turkey or ham ;or a gift unwrapped for a child who normally wouldn;t have a gift.

Are local salvation army need help to fill christmas baskets for people in need .Like can goods extra turkey or ham. A unwrapped toy for children ages from 0 to 15. I always buy for the older kids. Because people seem to forget to pick thier names on the angel tree.

There also is your local mission.They could use help also. Like warm socks; gloves coats for the homeless.Believe it or not. Not every homeless person choice to be homeless. They;ve lost jobs ;loss thier home.So lets not forget these people.Thier already down and out.
We cook a extra turkey and make sandwishes.Then we go out and hand them out to people who are living on the streets.Put a pair of socks or gloves in with the sandwish.These people really apprishate this. Not only that it makes you feel good.Seeing them smile.

Yes i know money is short.Yes i know were having a skimpy christmas.But these people have nothing.

If not for me or the people in need. Do it for GOD he;d do it for you.

    God Bless you my friend--just reading this brought tears to my eyes . . .It's but for the grace of God that we are fortunate enough to have shelter, food, etc. My heart goes out to the homeless as many of them have mental problems, unemployment, etc. through no fault of their own. I agree with you give from your heart as these people really need and appreciate everything you can do for them. I honestly think the giver gets as much, maybe even more, than the receiver. Thank you for reminding us! emoticon emoticon
