Hi friends! This weekend at church the Dove Tree was put up in the narthex. This tree holds paper dove ornaments. Each dove has boy or girl written across the top with the age of the child. These are children from our congregation who are from financially struggling families. It is all done privately, through the church office. These children can ask for a few things for Christmas presents. Things they know they will not be getting. Nothing outrageous or outlandish. Brian and I have enjoyed taking a dove over the years.
We decided it would be a wonderful thing for our three teens to do this year. Pick their own dove and shop for that child. Brian and I are done with our 11 year old boy. The three kids will be shopping this week.
I would like to show you a picture of the dove ornament Emerson chose.
Do we have extra? Do we have excess? By American standards, not by a long shot. I can truly say this is the tightest Christmas we have ever had. But God richly provides. He always does. We will not forget Him. Praise the Lord! He has not forgotten us.
Stiching and praying,
