It's Time To Fill That Food Basket At Church With All Kinds Of Goodies

I remember being in Catholic School and at this time of year we were all bringing in something to fill the food basket for the poor. I would ask my mother for something and she would find canned goods and dry food like rice or maybe some Warm Clothing. It was basically anything we could gather and give to someone out of the kindness of our hearts. I always enjoyed that feeling of doing something for someone else. It was always a special moment at this time of year. So I believe we should all find what we can and give to some needy person out of the kindness of our hearts. Follow what Jesus taught and still teaches us. You can go on Amazon or Ebay and find something to give. It does not have to be super expensive. One Thing Is All It Takes .

I think everyone should buy one thing whether it is food, clothing or just a toy. That special item will mean a lot to someone that does not have much. I know at the Catholic Church we go to the basket seems to always have something in it. I can remember as a child growing up without a father and living with my Grandparents we did not have much. Every Christmas we would get some kind of fruit or Food Basket from some lodge. It may have been a Moose Lodge or the Veterans. That little bit of food always tasted good. It always out something special on the table at Christmas. I also remember going to some lodge and getting a free meal and a toy for Christmas. I have never forgot that all these years. What my Mom, Grandparents and others taught us about giving has stuck with me all these years and I try to pass it on to my children. I do see it happening with my kids, so I know they listened.
  Once again it does not matter exactly what you give. It can be canned fruit or some kind of vegetable in a can or just a nice Food Basket. Maybe a jacket or clothing to keep someone warm on a cold winters day. Even just a pair of shoes or boots would help out someone. What matters is that what you are giving is coming from your heart. It's funny if you save five dollars a month that can buy a lot for someone who really needs it. So do whats right and help the poor in any way possible. Yes Do what Jesus would Jesus would do.

That Special Time Of Year Is Almost Here Again

                    The Original Nativity Birth of Jesus Christ Luke 2 Christian Bible Movie                                                                                     by David Lory VanDerBeek

    Yes that special time of year is almost here again. Yes I am also a year older well almost a year. Yes that special time is Christmas. When I say Christmas I do not mean that time of the year when you get some awesome presents or that time of the year when the family gets together and tells some funny stories about some one. What I mean it is when we celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. When some one says what is the reason for the season that is what they are talking about.

                                This is much more that we ever had, but very nice

    I used to always help set up my mothers nativity set. It was not anything expensive. In fact it was pretty simple and had some figures handed down from my Grandmother. I think that is one of the things that mad e it special as far as the nativity set goes. I used to look at the nativity set and try and place the figures in the right spot. I can remember just looking at it and the baby Jesus. I would think to myself how awesome this was. This person grew up, was crucified and died on the cross to take away the sins of the world for you and for me.
  One of my other favorite places was going to the church and looking at the nativity set in the church itself. The statues were a lot bigger that my mothers. I think what made it special is that it was very quiet in the church and you could just feel the presence of Jesus. The other things about this special time of year was going to mass and listening to the sermons on Christmas.  For some reason I just felt like I was close to being home.
  Thank You for reading and Have A Merry Christmas. God Bless.
