Be a Blessing This Christmas and Let Your Light Shine


I found this over at my friend Mary's blog and I am posting this so we can all join in and share our Christmas Spirit with others.
Sharon at Sit With Me Awhile and Mary at Mary's Writing Nook would like to encourage the women and men in our blogging community to start a sweet tradition.We would like to get everyone involved-even the children.
We want to be a blessing in His name this year.We would like you to come up with an idea that will enable you to reach out to someone in need during this Christmas season. If you are already involved in some type of Christmas giving tradition, we would like to hear about that too.Here are some ideas:
*Collect food for a food bank
*Shoeboxes by Franklin Graham
*Angel Tree-they provide gifts for children with parents in jail
Collect donations for a local charity
*Bake cookies for a nursing home
*Decorate a room at a nursing home for Christmas
*Let your children make Christmas cards for soldiers in Iraq
*Send a care package to a soldier

We want your ideas.On November 12th, we will ask you to post your ideas and link back here so that others can get some ideas.We will give you a month to complete your adventure in giving.If you have children or grandchildren- please get them involved. We have been given so much-let’s show them how great it feels to be a blessing during this time of the year

If you have children or grandchildren- please get them involved. We have been given so much-let’s show them how great it feels to be a blessing during this time of the year.If you have children involved -maybe you could interview them and let the post be about their responses. And , if you can take pictures we would love to see them..Once your post is up come back here and we will have another Mr linky up so that we can all share in the joy.
Our final post will be on the 10th of December. After you have your post up come back and add your post to Mr Linky.
Lets be a blessing in His name this year. Please be thinking-spread the word and come back here on November 12th to join with us. Let’s choose to reach out in the name of our Lord and be a blessing and a light.
Please feel free to grab the button that I have created for us. It is a pleasure to join arms and work together with you in His name!
I just took off the card sending deal off because this has all changed! Go up to the new post and read what is going on.

Such lovely sentiments - I wonder if there's anything similar happening here in the UK. Thanks for the recent visit and comment :).

Oh - hope you don't mind - I've tagged you with a meme over at Siani's Pot-Pourri.

Carolyn,

Thanks so much for posting this. I would like to see lots of bloggers become involved. It takes so little, really to give a blessing to those less fortuate. Even a pair of mittens donated for a needy child helps out.

Appreciate your thoughtfulness, my friend.

Blessings and a big smile,
Mary
