It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year…

Over the last couple of weeks I have witnessed many people being the hands and feet of Jesus (even if they didn’t realize it themselves)! And I may have had some fun along the way.

A God-Ordained Partnership

All of the Head Start Centers in our county rent from local churches.  It is these partnerships that enable us all to better serve our communities.  For instance this year there is a family with huge needs.  Our Site Director shared this need with our “landlord”, Bethany Lutheran Church and together we were able to make sure they will have an unforgettable Christmas. 

Last week we delivered a Christmas tree, complete with lights & decorations. There were also stockings & a wreath.

This week’s surprise was 3 HUGE bags of gifts!!

Help with Christmas Dinner

On Wednesday evening Yeymi (my bus attendant) and I were blessed to be able to deliver hams & turkeys to needy families.  They joy on their faces will stick with me for a long time.


Another generous donor provided several cases of brand new books.  I had the privilege of sharing these books with every child on my bus route.

Doesn’t this look like a fun book?

The Last Day Before Christmas Break

Merry Christmas!


  1. You and your coworkers look like you’re having so much fun! What a blessing this was to all the head start families! My mother taught head start (summers) for several years; she always felt that the children who needed her the most was where she needed to be. Have a blessed Christmas break!
