You probably think I am obsessed with stockings, and maybe I am. Our family does a charitable project every year to provide stocking for local youth in custody–children, ranging from 11-17 that will spend Christmas in jail.
They aren’t a lot–just a homemade stocking (wide variety of fabric) with some toiletries, treats and other small goodies.
But, for most of them, it is all they will receive.
Why do we do it? Well, Christ, whose season this is, served “the least of these” and asked us to do this same. This is one way we try to be His hands in this world.
