Oh Christmas Tree.

Earlier this year, or should I say last year, at the beginning of December, we decorated a tree. Mom has been having a ministry to an elderly lady named Erma who lives on our road. She and her brother haven't put up a tree in many years, and she loved our tree when she visited us. So, we found a nice tree close to her house along the road and decorated it. We just used leftover garland, a few bows, and some dollar ornaments, but I think it turned out nicely.


This is Christy, me, and my nephew Galon who helped us. My Mom took the picture. We left it up all month. It really stood out as we drove along the road. A couple of weeks ago, we noticed a package underneath. It was just a decoration, nothing was in it. But it is so cool that someone would put a present underneath our tree. Today, while Mom was taking it down, a truck pulled over and a man got out. He watched Mom take off all of the stuff, and he was all smiles. He commented on how nice the tree had been and how he had enjoyed it. Then Mom said that we had put up all of the decorations, but someone else had put the package underneath. He said that he had put it there! He said what a wonderful thing we were doing and he said that next year, we should do it again, and that he would bring more presents to put underneath! This was such a blessing to us! Just think, while we were trying to have a ministry to Erma, we inadvertly blessed someone else too! God can work wonders through the smallest acts of kindness. Next year, I'm going to put a baby Jesus on the tree, and maybe a star on top! Happy New Year!

That is so cool that you and your family did that, and the fact that the kindness reached more then Erma.

In Christ,

What a wonderfully sweet thing to do for Erma! :) A great way of reaching out to others.
