I did think I would get to blog yesterday, but this project completely took over my day. The absolute, entire day. Seriously, from 6:00 in the morning to after 9:00 in the evening. And yes, there is still more to be done.
What is going on with all of this? Well, it is a service project that a friend of mine and I designed for our church’s young women to work on. So many peoples lives were turned upside down with all of the fires this year. My friend teaches with another woman that is from one of the many areas devastated by fires. We made a goal to do something for a dozen families that could help them enjoy the Christmas season a bit more.
These are advent books that will have an activity, scripture, story and a Christmas song in each of the twenty-five envelopes. They are designed to be all inclusive. Additional materials are not needed to enjoy the activities, just your family. Since there are so many people still displaced, Christmas might not feel the same. Maybe this will help a dozen families find some comfort.
There is still work to be done, but it won’t be long now. They will be delivered before December begins so they can start on the first. Serving others makes even something as fun as paper crafting even more fun and rewarding.
Have a creative day!
