It's a Wonderful Life…

with the Mace family.

25 days of Christmas.

With the Christmas season upon us, we have already started decorating and preparing to celebrate the birth of Christ.  This year we are doing things a little differently.  As a family, we are striving to bless others for 25 days.  Every day we will seek to bless someone until Christmas day. Some will be intentional, and others will be random.  The boys have already made a list of some people they are wanting to bless.  We are trying to teach the boys that Christmas is about giving, not getting.  It’s ultimately about the gift Christ gave us, and how we can give  to show His love.  The boys are excited about this and have started early making things for those they have chosen.  We also plan to let them in on some of the random blessings, with a little guidance so they learn how to find others to bless.  While I know you all can’t do 25 days of blessing people, I urge you to find one person this Christmas season to bless.

Update:  We did 22 of 25 days!  I am impressed as this was something we had to work at since it is not part of our normal routine.  We really had to remind ourselves daily.  As we start a new year, I am hoping to work on this as a family.  If we can be more aware of those around us, we will see the needs of people and perhaps be able to meet some of them.
