Our favorite day!! This week we were able to deliver 334 hats, 355 gloves, 537 pair of socks, 29 coats, 11 scarves, 7 pajamas, and 6 blankets to Oqquirh Elementary, where they will go to the homes of children in need on Christmas morning. Thank you to all who donated!! There were "Christmas Miracles" the night before and again the morning we took the goodies. Which means to me that this little, tiny charity is being led by someone not so little. God knows our needs. Both tiny and big. He will always hear us. And He will always help us.
As we dropped the bags off, it felt strange handing them over without Alec, who started this all. We missed him in every step. But walking down the hall toward the school doors, Luke pointed to a small tile hanging on the wall that had been hand painted by a child, "Look!" - it was a beautiful flower and the name - Honduras. We felt Alec's love and Christ's love in the same moment.
