On the 9th day of Christmas.

Day 9: 

Give the gift of service. 

I realize commercialism is sensationalized during this time of year, but it's also a condensed period where a lot of good happens - empty bellies are fed, spontaneous Christmas gifts appear, and helping hands come together to build and uplift communities.

A few weeks ago, three of my girls from youth group planned an activity to give the gift of service. A local organization was looking for some help for the basics... And I mean basics (soap and washcloths being at the top of the list). With some local donations and organization, we rounded up materials for basic hygiene kits and materials to make blankets. We know it wasn't much, but we realize that service in all shapes and forms can personally influence and affect an individual in a powerful way.
