The Generosity of Children

Our church is participating in Operation Christmas Child, and I have never seen kids so passionate about making a complete stranger happy. One of my kindergarteners was sick and had to miss contributing to our gift box today. She was so upset that her mom came by my house later to drop off her donation which included a sandwich bag of quarters to go toward the shipping costs. Charlotte made her own box to send, and it's the first time that she's gone through the toy department and not pointed out a million things she wants. Once the kids realized that the children receiving these boxes only get what is in the shoe box for Christmas, their generosity was overwhelming. It's amazing to see the Lord work through these children and their families.

I love Op. Christmas Child. Our church doesn't do it, for some reason--this is only our second Christmas with this church. But next year I'm going to suggest we do it as a SS class.
