Christmas Jar Story: ' Thank you for redirecting our intentions'

Ottoville, OH:

I finished The Christmas Jars in late November this year.
It is a beautiful book that has made me rethink Christmas.
Giving should be at the top of our list. So we made an
Advent wreath this year with 3 purple and 1 pink candle.
We are lighting the candles designated each night while
the wreath sits atop a love table(purchased on our
honeymoon 11 years ago). In the center of the wreath,
on the table, is our Christmas Jar. My 7 and 9 year old
daughters discuss nightly who will get our Jar, what
they will do with the money, how happy they will be.
It is so exciting for them to help others. We do not
yet know who it will go to. God will lead us to where
it belongs. The expectation is exhilarating. As should
be our expectation of our Lords birth. Thank you for
re-directing our intentions this and every future
Christmas season. God bless!
