Merry Christmas

Posted by Ginger~~Enchanting Cottage

December 19,2009 Here is a story I wanted to share with you, it put a smile on my face.

I was talking to a man and his daughter this past week at work, the daughter may have been about 14 years old. The father started to tell me what she wanted for Christmas and as he was telling me he had some tears in his eyes. He said instead of having Christmas gifts she wanted to use that money to feed the homeless. This father was so proud of his daughter for being so generous and he had every right to be. This is a time of year when we hear some touching stories of people helping people. We hear so many bad things all the time that it's nice to hear some good.
I hope that you all have a safe and warm Christmas,
God Bless,
Ginger

It's a blessing when our children surprise us by being good, once again proving our sin-nature.

We're in our home, and we've been blessed with an abundant supply of good helpers, but we've still much to do. Merry Christmas, Ginger.

Blessings Ginger & Merry Christmas!

This is the kind of story that we need to encourage us to share CHRISTmas and the real spirit of CHRISTmas that comes through a young lady, no longer a child but still with the precious heart of a child and so selfless! Her dad has every reason to be proud of her and also honor her request (plus give her a special gift like a plaque with her & the people they feed, so she'll remember always that it's better to give than just receive)!

Thanks for sharing & may your CHRISTmas also be safe & warm & filled with love, peace & joy!

Ginger,
I am so glad you shared this story with us today. It just shows how well her parents raised her, too. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

I would be feel very blessed if my children/grandchldren would do that. We often give out of our surplus...what's left over after we have all we want, but that isn't the example that God recorded in scripture for us to model after...the widow's mite was ALL she had.

Wonderful message in this story...thanks so much for sharing it, and have a very merry and blessed Christmas!
