Our Christmas Wish

This isn't supposed to be the next post after Day 3 in Phuket. But as they say in the movies, "We interrupt this programme for a breaking news story..."

Not really a breaking news story, but something worthy.

It's Christmas. The reason why I haven't posted Day 4 of our Phuket Adventures is because it's been crazy trying to settle Christmas shopping and the general year-end craziness. It is constantly at the back of mind, that Day 4 remains unpublished. But it has to wait a day longer because I think this is a more important post to write or rather link.

One of my dear dear friends, S whom I admire greatly because she is the quintessential supermom  intent on raising her kids right. Not in the book smart, hot housed way but in the Proverbs 22:6 way "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." S is teaching her daughter and will teach her baby son, to be God-fearing and empathetic, kind and helpful to those around them. Values that sometimes get ignored in the other more localized and literal interpretation of training up a child.

Anyway, for Christmas this year, S and her daughter, Faith decided to make snow globes out of old baby food jars. When they completed them, more beautifully than I could ever do, Faith decided she was going to sell them; not to fund her own Christmas presents but to give it to a children's home so that the children there could have Christmas presents.

JEDPacks is supporting her and matching every dollar she makes and adding to the contribution the home will get from her because it is a great thing for a 5 year old to think beyond herself and we want to affirm her every step of the way. It is also the same message we are trying to send out to JED. 

This is Jordan, with Faith at their recent ballet recital. Both of them are supposed to be corn in the field. Such sweet corn!
So if you would like to support little Faith's first social cause, please pop over to JEDPacks to find out more about The True Meaning of Christmas and help Faith and JEDPacks bring a bright smile to the children at the home.

... We will now return to our regular scheduled programming *white noise crackle and pop*....
