If you’ve never filled a shoebox for Operation Christmas Child, you’re missing out! And it’s not too late! (drop-off week starts 11/13) It’s an amazing outreach and so fun to do–especially if you have little kids. What a teachable moment. It warms my heart to think of the precious little children who might be receiving their first Christmas gift ever this year–and hearing the gospel for the first time to boot.
I’ve just been struck lately with an urgency to do all I can to bless others. And my goodness, I’m just getting blessed right back. I’m reading a book right now about attitudes–the chapter I’m on speaks of replacing an attitude of complaining with an attitude of thankfulness. I’m ashamed to think of how God views some of my xanga vents–as an affront to His sufficient provision for me, no doubt. Not that we can’t share struggles and negative things–we just have to check our hearts and fight the urge to complain.
Anyway, five items left:
–purpose-driven life (rick warren)
–i choose you (point of grace, cd)
–the law of recognition (mike murdock)
–restoring order (vicki norris)
–addicted to shopping (karen o’connor)
