Hello everyone, now is your chance to tell me what you think. I shared in my previous post that we are trying to really keep the present giving and receiving in perspective. To spend less and give more. Does that make sense? Nobody "needs" to be smothered in gifts at Christmas to make it special and our family is no exception. I mean what if we all sepnt less and gave more of our time, resources and energy to eternal things? Man oh man wouldnt that speak volumes to the world around us! So every year I have this really cool wood advent house I set up and everyday the girls open it to find little candies, scripture, or coupons for dates with mom and dad; things like that. This year I want to make it 25 days of service to our neighbors. Take the trash cans in, grab the mail, rake up leaves etc. Can you guys give me some ideas that would bless you if you were our neighbors. Please keep in mind that we are pretty close and friendly with most all of our neighbors so it can be more than the average surface thing. I know God will bless our entire family and grow us through this and I pray it will minister to others in a way that we don't even know yet. Come on Bloggers I need 25 ideas!! Have a gret weekend.
(p.s. if you are one of my neighbors reading this you do NOT get to put in your two cents! he,hee!)
