The Art Of Giving

When Granny came in to town this weekend to celebrate birthdays with the girls - we love that it just wasn't all about "gimmee, gimmee, gimmee."

Oh don't get me wrong - granny spoiled like granny does...

However - she also came armed with this big stack of Operation Christmas Child boxes for a special project with Meron and Mebrate.

After sending me and Laura out on our first date in MONTHS - Granny and the girls got down to business.

They carefully chose stickers...

They colored intently...

They wrote messages...

And used more stickers (stickers around here are like cowbell - you can never have enough - MORE COWBELL).

And they packed toys, necessities and love inside 10 boxes. That means 10 kids around the globe are gonna have a little bit of a brighter day this Christmas.

I love that granny did this with our girls with great intention - and I love that they were all about doing it with her.

National Collection Week is November 14-21... so you got plenty of time to fill up a box or two or ten!

"From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked." (Luke 12:48)

Your sweet girls prayed over the boxes when they were packed and ready to go. Their love and sweet words will surely fill every empty space in each box so that when the boxes are open, love will surge toward the receiver in Jesus' name.
