Gift Tags

My church has a "Giving Tree" which is an artificial Christmas tree hung with angel shaped tags.   Each tag is labelled with an age and sex of a child or adult.  The tags tell us what the item is that we should buy and wrap and then return these to the church.

On Sunday, I took two tags off the tree.  It's difficult to buy extra gifts what with all of my medical bills, but I decided to do this anyway.  I'll never meet the people I am buying gifts for, and I am sorry that they are in circumstances of need.

I am thankful for my blessings and hope to bless others with a prayer and a gift.    Do you do something similar in your churches?
