be still my heart

Yesterday Peter took the kids to drop off their Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes. (As an aside, we love this program and highly recommend it for giving kids an opportunity to make a difference in a way they can understand.) While we were shopping for gifts and packing our boxes, we talked about the fact that our boxes might go to Africa or Asia or South America or some other place where kids wouldn't have any Christmas presents and need to know Jesus loves them. When they got to our local drop off point, the volunteers asked the kids where they wanted their shoe boxes to go. Joshua said Asia. Patience said Liberia. Garty said...drumroll please... France! Nothing warms this mommy's heart like knowing my 2.5 year old is already a Francophile. I don't know where he picked that up, but I'm so proud.
