“My Christmas Eve,” by Bob Welsh…

The Blessed Joy of Giving…

These days, as Christmas approaches, we here a lot about how consumeristic the holiday season has become and for good reason. But there is another side to Christmas. My daughter, Caryn, will turn 9 in two weeks. She  currently receives a weekly allowance for various chores she does around the house. Like most children, she’ll also receive more than enough Christmas presents as she does every year. However, this year, without any prompting from her mother and I, she asked if she could go shopping to buy a few gifts for people. So tonight her mother will take her Christmas shopping. As I thought about this, it reminded me that there is a side of Christmas — a good side — that is about giving. So this also becomes another great opportunity to teach our children about the blessed joy of giving.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
