Joyful

In the midst of all the things going on this Christmas, I’m curious what your favorite moment has been to this point?   Maybe it was a funny thing, an encouraging thing or something you learned.  Would you share it with us?  Just post a comment at the bottom of this blog entry.

One of the coolest things I have heard this year was the Christmas Santa’s that have been paying off Layaways at Walmart Stores.  I am not sure what town it started in, however I have heard that it has spread all over the country.

How amazing is that?  I love the impact on people pulling together the money to pay off those layaways just a couple days before Christmas, only to find out that someone has already paid it off.  Hmm. . . debt forgiven.  Sound familiar?  There it is, the real reason for the season, in that manger, the birth of Christ. . . debt forgiven.

The other thing I enjoyed was a video.  You may have seen it last year.  Made me smile thinking about the really creative people and the way they find to communicate the birth of Christ in a unique way.  If you have seen it, here is a connection to YouTube for your enjoyment: Social Media Christmas

So what about you?  What moments this year have been special to you?

  1. My niece wanted to visit my mom here in Missouri and she lives in Illinois. Her car broke and she was heart broke that she had no way here or back.She thought there was no hope.
    With one phone call, I made it all better. I will be picking her up and taking her back! Wish fulfilled.
    Many of my wishes have been fulfilled and it feels awesome to be able to bless others ~ without expectation!
    Merry Christmas!

    • Love this story Angi! What a blessing that God creates the opportunity and puts you in the right place at the right time! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Our 24 year old son was telling us with such joy, about his decision to buy a family’s dinner at a restaurant. We were so blessed to see his giving spirit as he told us about it, & to see the joy he received in giving!

    • So awesome to see you and Tom! Thanks for sharing!! Doesn’t surprise me at all that your boys think this way. . . I know how their mom raised them! 🙂
