Sharon at Sit With Me Awhile wrote a beautiful post today. Now Sharon and her family moved this year from Louisiana to North Carolina. They are living in a trailer and have put up a beautiful fir Christmas tree and some outside snowflake lights. She was mentioning that some of the people who are her neighbors are living in the trailer park because they have no where else to go. She mentioned that these people don't have much and she and her daughter are going to do some Christmas baking for them.
Last year Sharon and I joined forces to organize a group of people to do something for those less fortunate. With Aunt May so ill, I didn't really have a chance to talk to Sharon about that this year, but instead, I'm going to turn Sharon's goodwill gesture into a challenge. I am going to do some Christmas baking for someone less fortunate.
I challenge all of you who visit my blog to take up this challenge and do a bit of Christmas baking for someone less fortunate. It could be a family who has no income, a senior citizen, someone who is disabled, someone whose lost their job or a neighbor who lives on a fixed income. If you don't have time to bake, you can purchase something at a bakery and give it. Please though, let it be something that is baked, not something that is purchased from the shelves of your local grocery store.
So, my friends, let your light shine. It doesn't take long to whip up a batch of cookies, a batch of microwave peanut brittle or some fudge. Rocky Roads are quick and easy when done in the microwave. It only takes about 15 minutes.
If you are going to take up the challenge, please leave a comment. I would love to know how many are going to participate.
Have a great week and remember to Let Your Light Shine. ~Blessings Mary~
