- Surprise - be open to surprises!
- No favoritism - Be open to all people.
- Giving - Give to those who have needs and not just to those who have lists.
This year on Christmas, we will be going to the Dorothy Day Center in St. Paul. It's a local homeless shelter. We will give each of our Christmas guests, the gift of our time. We are also going to give them each a gift. We'll be giving gifts with gloves, hats, scarves, socks, and a little something. While we are full for our volunteers slots, we do still need help with gifts and food. If you're interested, here's the link to help. You can also donate and specify what you would like the money to go to. Or help someone in your community.
Finally...what is the best gift ever? Well, our pastor said it is your wrapped attention! Yes! That indeed is the best gift. The gift of your love. Love others! Yes, that includes your family. But I'm also talking about those that you don't know. What can you do to love someone who's not expecting it? Surprise someone today!
I would love to hear about ways you surprise someone with love!
