October already…No, nearly November??!! Christmas has a way of sneaking up on a person. But, this year I am better prepared than ever, thanks to Darlene and her Christmas Through The Year challenge.
While I haven’t quite made a gift every month, after taking inventory on Saturday I see that I am in pretty good shape. I might even sleep between Thanksgiving and Christmas this time.
So, what do I have for this month? Not much, but there are two more stockings for the Youth In Custody Christmas Stocking project. (SEE Simple Speedy Stocking tutorial above) Our family does Christmas for about 25 young people each year. Not much, just a stocking, a few toiletries, a book and a treat or two. But, it is something and gives hope and love to some of “the least of these.”
