Love in a Box

dsc_1480

It’s that time of year when we make up Christmas shoe boxes for underpriviledged children. I love doing this, a lot of thought, but also a lot of prayers, go into making up the shoe boxes. As i wrap them i think of how fortunate we are as a family. There are many things that we are without, but none of them are things that we need. We have love, we have one another, we have a roof over our head, we have running water, sanitation, food, warmth, transportation etc. Lord, thank you for all that you have given my family.

    We’ve done this for a number of years through more than just the most well known charity of this kind. As you note, it is a wonderful way to express gratitude as well as offering help to another.

  2. my mum does this too. This year because of arthritis a young friend helped her pack the boxes – that was a gift of love to her.

  3. PS she always makes boxes for boys – cos so many people think it’s easier for the girls … I like that 🙂

    Owen, glad your family do this to. I can imagine a whole lotta love going into the boxes you send out.

    Lorna, i think that’s wonderful that your mum participates in this and that she was helped to continue doing this kind endeavour.

    I include enough sweets for a few kids and there are boy and girl toys in both boxes because i know that girls usually have brothers to share thei shoe boxes with.

    thanks Suz! Hope you are having a great weekend!

  7. this year my mum included a retractable tape measure. wasn’t that a neat idea …. and she usually puts a whistle thing in too (poor parents!) – colouring pencils and pens , paper to write /draw on (small note books) she’s pretty creative and collects stuff all year.

    but I’m thankful that a friend was willing to help her this year in putting the boxes together
