Slippers & PJ´s for Christmas
All 30 children were sitting patiently as they called their name one by one to get their Christmas present.
Trinity Baptist Church had families pick a child to buy a present for at New Hope Coban children´s home.
You could see nothing but smiles filling the room and each child bubbling with excitement.
As soon as all the gifts were passed out they were all allowed to open their present!
One by one they pulled out their gifts slowly and with care. Eyeing each find as if it were a foreign treasure they just dug up.
They each had a card with a family picture inside so they could see who picked out their present.
Every child received slippers & pj´s.
The ruffling soon subsides and a few tears run down their cheek.
One of the older girls, Florida, raises her hand and asks to speak.
¨Thank you so much for our gifts. I know there are alot of children who will not get this. I just wanted to let you know that I am very gratfeul for this and may God bless you.¨
All the children then stuck the picture of the family they received and stuck it in their Bible to pray for them always.
Some of these children have no family.
My words can barely do this scene justice. We have so much to be thankful for this Christmas.
Hug the necks of your family and cherish the memories you make. If you have someone that loves you, food on the table, water to drink, and a roof over your head this holiday you have everything one should ever want or need.
God blessed me by getting to see the true meaning of Christmas this year through spending it with his angels.
Now, I get to share this special moment with you.
Merry Christmas & God Bless
