Last evening my police department did a Christmas party for some very poor residents whose kids otherwise wouldn't have gotten a visit from santa. One of our, um, ahem, 'larger', officers dressed up as santa and rode to the gathering on a fire truck.
Some of the kids were excited to merely get a winter coat, not to mention the toys. One little girl looked at my Lieutenant when she was told that she could take the toys with her and, in amazement, said, "You mean I can keep these?" It kind of breaks your heart.
And it makes me thankful for the many blessings He has given my family and I. I pray that He blesses each one of our members also, regardless of which religion we are or how we choose to worship Him.
And remember, Christ is the best present ever!
