Christmas Blessings and other thoughts

    On December 28 and 29th, we went to Farrell and Sharon to deliver Christmas Blessing bags to those in need.  We delivered 250 snack bags and roughly 50 school supply bags. 
     The snow delayed us by two days.  
      I want to thank everyone who bought supplies or came with us to deliver Christmas. 
      Each bag contained a note that said: 
Sarah's Toybox 
Our family wants to let you know that Jesus loves you and that He has the gift of salvation for all who ask.  This bag is a gift too.  It is a gift of hope that we came to possess after Sarah’s death. 
       Another thought going through my head are that over the weekend a young man living where we deliver blessing bags was shot to death.  He was a basketball player and he was a man full of potential according to his basketball coach.  I am a substitute teacher in the district and cannot say I remember him.  Which saddens me because I never got to know this child of God.  My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
