Operation Christmas Child

Every November, I participate in a very special project from Samaritan's Purse called Operation Christmas Child. It is so very special to my heart. What you do is fill a shoe box with small toys, hard candy or coloring books, ect. for a little girl or a little boy. Then you can wrap it and give the box to participants who take care of transporting it. I never have found out where my shoe box went, but I trust that the children who recieved them, felt so very happy. Last year, Russell helped me fill a shoe box for a little girl. Tonight, we are going to Wal Mart to pick out things for this year's shoe box. I cannot help it, but even when I am at Wal Mart picking out toys, socks, etc. I start to tear up and almost cry because I know that precious child will be SO grateful for it and it's not very much to us but it means a lot to them! Russell and I will get a lot out of it this year, I'm sure!
