I'm once again doing 25 days of Advent with my girls. Our focus is on giving, not getting, at Christmas. I have changed some of it, partly to adjust for changes in age, partly to improve upon things I learned from last year. One thing that will not go away, however, is the discussions about those who do not have basic necessities such as food, or beds, or clean water, and supporting them.

Christmas season is not meant to depress, but we should reflect on the true meaning of giving. Respond to what your heart is calling you to do, and blessings will fill you with true joy.
