Shen. County, VA:
This year has been a tough one, but a blessed one. I am a single mother of 4 kids. Last night as I was trying to finish preparations for the kids' Christmas, I got a knock on the door. I couldn't imagine who would be here that time of night. I was shocked to see a uniformed officer standing at my doorstep. He told me "Merry Christmas, handed me the jar, and said all that he could tell me is that it was a gift from Jesus.
I can't stop crying over how blessed I am. Praise God that people still care, and still think of others. What a blessing! We will be putting out our own Christmas jar throughout the next year!
