Adopt-a-Family: Please Help!

Wow!!  I cannot believe how quickly we met our goal!  I set it at $500 thinking that would make a good Christmas for them, covering gifts and food.  Any money that continues to come in will go to help them outside of Christmas.  They have bills to pay and groceries to buy.  Please pray that this will be a blessing for this family that will show them the love of Jesus!

Lately, I've been thinking about how incredibly blessed our family is.  We have a warm home that is just the right size.  Brian has a job that takes care of our needs and most of our wants.  We have two healthy children.  We have family close by that cares about and loves us and that we get along with.  God has taken such good care of us.  

After yesterday's tragedy, I was again struck with how blessed we are.  And the experiences of others who aren't going to have such a good Christmas were a little closer to my heart.  Today, Brian and I decided to help a family out for Christmas.  We found a family who needs help and I'm planning on keeping the identity and age of the children a secret so they can be surprised.  We'd love to have your help.  We can give a little and with your help, we'd like to be able to give a lot.  If you'd like to know more about this family's story, I'd be happy to share, just send me a message and I'll fill you in.  

Thank you so much for any help you're able to give!
