...whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Phil 4:8
What a great opportunity to show love in action -- the children must have been so excited!
Heartwarming to learn that children of today have the same desires in gift selection as I recall in the children that I assisted in such an event years ago. And that the helpers of today get the same satisfaction too.
There are so many ways to share the love of Christ. I'm so glad that you and Anneliese were there to do just that. These are things that the children will always remember. What a cool idea this entire project is!
What a wonderful idea...and how fun to be part of the 'wrapping process'!
What a sweet idea!! And how fun to watch the little faces as they chose their special gifts. You and your group were a real blessing!
Such a good idea, I would have loved to do that as a child. Also props to you for wrapping a rocking horse :) Sounds like a tricky one
Absolutely love the idea of regifting! One person's trash is another one's treasure - not that any of this is trash - but that's how the saying goes. I also love the idea of teaching the children to be the giver and not just the receiver of gifts. Everyone is blessed!
Ahh, this really looks like a heart warming experience Lovella. Love that photo of Anneliese with her warm smile!

WHEN did you do up this post? I came here because of a comment left on my post that they had seen me here.I have not even looked at my photos. You did such a great job of covering this event! It really was fun to see the kids anticipate their mom, dad, step mom, little sister or big brother ... receive a gift they had chosen. I also wished I could have helped them choose .. but then it may not have been what they thought would bring a smile to that special person.And for the record.. a guitar can be wrapped up too!=)
What a wonderful way to volunteer time in the lives of the kids and school....I can imagine how thankful those kids would of been just going home smug as a button...that they had a present for mommy and daddy.
What a wonderful idea! How special for the children -- and how kind for community members to help with the project. You experienced the real joy of Christmas!LaTeaDah

I volunteered to do this same thing at my children's school when they were young! It was fun to help the little ones choose a gift and they were always so serious about it and so excited when they had it wrapped. Such nice memories :)
