I saw this inspiring story this morning as my wife and I were getting ready for the day.  At the end of the news clip, both my wife and I were crying.  Well, she was crying, but my allergies were definitely acting up!

This touching report is about a small town that wanted to make a huge impact in the lives of foster children, and they did.  It started with the pastor and wife of a small church in a small Texas community and ended with 25 families adopting a total of 72 children.  You can read the full story here.

As we go through this season that’s focused on shopping, material things, and becomes a time where many people get stressed out, let’s remember the real reason for the holidays. It’s about the coming of Christ and the sacrifice that He made.  With the example that He set, He also challenged us to give as He gave, to love as He loved, and to share what He did to all those around us.

Merry Christmas!
