Found this gem over at Pensieve – thanks for the reminder, Robin!
Actually, this is the first Christmas that we’re not going hog wild on each other, I’m happy to say. The hubs and I are only buying a few gifts for each other and the kids are scaling WAY down than in previous years.
We’re also buying gifts for two Salvation Army kids in need, we donated money to purchase a child three outfits and a winter coat, and my youngest son is playing his saxophone next Saturday at the mall as part of a community project through his school to try and persuade people to drop some money in the Salvation Army bucket.
So, how are you spending less and giving more?
Romans 12:13 — “Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.”
