stuff and nonsense

Anyone else feeling incredibly behind in their gift buying?

I'm determined to not go to crazy this year. I've become more and more convinced of the ridiculousness of STUFF in my life and I don't want to force it on anyone else either. I just want to give something that will let someone know that I love and appreciate them in my life. Maybe that's through food, or a handmade gift, or a heartfelt letter. Aren't those things more valued anyway? I mean I keep handwritten notes and cards for YEARS. So many of them are stuck into my Bible or on my walls or in a book as a book mark. I TREASURE those things. True, loving thoughts and moments. That is what life is about.

I'm working on a post for end of the year giving again this year. I truly feel this is so important. Not that you do it at the end of the year necessarily, but that you GIVE where you feel the Lord leads your heart. I'll have a few options of organizations that I support and think the world of. Organizations that are making a difference in the world. It will be up soon. Hope it inspires you to GIVE to those less fortunate this year.
