My families tradition of a holiday Heart

My family was always big on gathering's,on all the holdays,birthdays,weddings,and funerals. Everything was so beautifully put togehter,every one always brought the special dishes to share. There was always prayers frist,I have a very large family. So we take turns saying the grace before eating.

Sometimes my brother's and sister,would invite our friends who didn't have much in the way of festive meals. They were like part of our family,no one was ever excluded.Little did I know how this tradition,of sharing,and giving unconditionally,would play a major part in my life later on.

I quess it never came to my mind,there are many people who don't celebrate holiday's,or have the warmth and closeness,as my family has. So as a young child,right at that instance,I started inviting friends who were without this Godly love. The gleam in thier eyes,and change of thier exspressions was a delight to me.

This has stayed with me always,I will carry on the heart of the holiday's,each and everyday of me life. My family we have many friends,who are widowed,or single,no one to share this special times with. The Lord has give me the gift,of a heart of hospitality. And the fruites of the spirit.

I pray this will be a christ like example,for all who feel abandoned,hopeless,left out of the circle of life. I have seen the revival in the lives of these people. Glory to God in the highest. From exstending these special gifts,to ohers daily. I will dedicate and be a willing servant,even to those who have not experienced,his awesome and devine love.

Have a blessed "Thank's Giving",all of you. May there be a revival of a holiday heart,within us all daily. God Bless.

What a gift you offer, Deborah. Being a single parent for over 20 years, I know what it is to me on the 'outside' looking in. Your heart becomes the biggest gift you serve at these holiday occassions. And believe me, it makes a difference.
