I share with you two items entitled simply WHITE - you'll know why after you read them.....
Hanging a white stocking for Jesus
It wasn't that anyone had really been forgotten, no children had been slighted or made unhappy and no adult had been left unremembered. The presents had all been distributed and all the stockings were beautifully filled, all that is except one; it was the stocking intended for the child of Bethlehem. Of all the people belonging at that Christmas gathering, only he had been forgotten. Only he had been left out of the festivities. This didn't seem quite right, inasmuch as it was His birthday that was being celebrated.
Make sure that this year, the little white stocking will be hung in a special place in your home. On Christmas Eve, make sure to gather the family together and each member will write on a piece of paper, a gift for Jesus to be placed in the stocking.
It will remain in the stocking until next year's Christmas Eve, when everyone will reach into the stocking, and then pass out the papers from the year before.
We hope that you will enjoy beginning this holiday tradition in your home. Your gift could include: personal goals you wish to achieve, family goals, ways you will be of service to others in the coming year, faults you want to eliminate from your life, or relationships you wish to improve.
