This weekend, I’m going to The Garden of Angels for a Christmas concert. We’ll sing holiday songs and share tree ornaments. We’ll donate books to families whose lives have been touched by Safe Arms for Newborns. And we’ll honor the tiny babies who are buried in the Garden.
You may remember that I have a personal connection to this place. I blogged about it here and here. A few days ago, I mentioned that I was collecting books to take to the party. And then, a miracle happened! Some amazing author-friends offered to contribute brand-new and gently-used books, too! I thanked them through my tears. I wasn’t looking for help, but it came knocking. That’s how blessings happen, don’t you think? And so, in the spirit of friendship, I’m wondering if any of you would like to join us. Share the books you love…Share your hearts with the babies.
Times are tight; I know that. But if you’ve got a book or two to spare, I know for sure they’ll end up in happy hands. You can also send them in the new year–good books are always welcome! They need reading materials for all age groups, from babies to adolescents. And they’d love to have some to share with young mothers, too. But even if your resources are limited, I know already that your generosity is not. If you can’t send books, I know they’ll be grateful for your prayers. And please, pass this along to anyone you think might be interested.
