25 Days of Christmas 2013 – Day 2 – The Gift of Giving

As our boys get bigger, we are looking for more and more ways to help them remember that giving is what is really important in life. Today’s Christmas task was to purchase gifts for a child we don’t even know. Brian and I picked his name from a tree at Texas Tech. And today we took the boys to look for clothes, a warm coat, shoes, and superheroes for a little boy who is waiting to be placed with an adoptive family. As we drove, Brian said these beautiful words to our boys…

Boys, it is important to give. Not so that people see that we give, but because Jesus gave. He gave to the poor and to the sick and to the dying. He gave us his life on the cross. He have us one another. So we give to others – it’s the right thing to do.
