Of course I forgot my camera!!!! AHHHH!!!!! Today was the collection day at Eastview for the toy portion of the Imagine project. I was overwhelmed and amazed at the generosity of our church family. After first service 1346 toys had been collected-all in just over one hour!!!! These toys will be distributed on Imagine Saturday in December. I only wish that I was able to show pictures of how joyful everyone looked this morning. There is something so incredibly special about doing something for other people that we will never meet face to face. I am so proud of our kids for being the hands and feet of Jesus Christ in such a simple way. So this week what will you do to help someone else? How can we all pay it forward so that someone is blessed in a small way? Maybe pay for the person behind you in the line at Starbucks? Drop a dollar bill into the Salvation Army bucket instead of pennies? Push your cart to the corral at Walmart? Help a Mom who is struggling to get her groceries into her van in the cold? Little things add up to greatness!!!!!
Keep looking for ways to bless others this holiday season! I promise that you will feel something deep down inside that many of us tend to loose in the busyness of the season. Something far better than getting a great deal on that toy on Black Friday and something far better than just buying into the commercial side of Christmas.
Let's make a difference!!!
