I called the local Salvation Army yesterday to see where they stood with their angel tree kids. They had just been informed of 10 more that didn’t have sponsors. I took a step of faith and volunteered, and I went and picked them up.
As soon as I got back to work, one of my coworkers grabbed two of the angel cards and headed out to shop.
This morning, I called a customer to confirm a brunch date for Sunday. He asked what our Saturday looked like, and I told him “Shopping for Angels!”. My customer then told me his family usually adopts angels every year … but they recently suffered a death in the family, and his wife is out of the country attending to her family. They’re just out of rhythm right now – a death will do that to you.
He’s going to split the costs with us on these 8 remaining children. He's an angel for our angels! Isn’t that awesome?? These kids won't go without gifts. Now that, ladies and gents, is what this season is all about! Woohoo! And thank you, Lord!
Have a great weekend!
