STOP AND THINK – Christmas, my child, is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it’s Christmas. (Dale Evans)

Since last Christmas, the kids have been looking forward to the Big Day tomorrow. Their parents are trying to teach them about having a loving, giving spirit on more than just one day a year. The kids are excited about the gifts they hope to receive in the morning, but let all of us help them, not only to enjoy the day, but to learn that we give because we love.

Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. (2 Corinthians 9:7)
