After last years television show regarding the Christmas jar I decided to start putting my change in a mason jar. My husband and I are retired and we live on a fixed income, so change would not be as much as for someone or some family that would be working. My groceries and gas are paid with a debit card so not a lot of change runs through my fingers.
Nonetheless, I continued to save faithfully. A few times during the year I asked God to help me pick someone as I really didn’t know of a family to whom I would be able to bless.
During the year my husband’s son went through horrible times, he lost his marriage, his home and then finally a month ago his job. I knew where to give the jar. I hadn’t shared with my husband the process of the Christmas jar. Not for any particular reason, because this year he is sharing with me in our hunt for change.
I had no idea how much was in the jar. He came for Thanksgiving with his two sons and after dinner, I brought him out the jar.
I am so grateful that I stepped out in faith and to do what I could do.
