One of my favorite things to do each year is to pack an Operation Christmas Child shoe box. This is one of those times I wish I was financially able to pack hundreds of shoe boxes for these precious children overseas.
There's no comparison from Bradley's room so full of toys that you can't step in the room without stepping on a toy and then these simple shoe boxes filled with a few toys and personal hygiene products. These children may never know what it's like to be so "rich" in America but you can have a small part in making their world better from just a shoe box.
Bradley and I went to Walmart today and we had so much fun picking out toys and hygiene products to put in the boxes. Bradley had a hard time realizing that only small toys could fit in the shoe boxes. He was so sweet picking out toys and stuffed animals, saying "yes, I think the girl will like this" or "yes, the boy will like this car". I hope he will always have a tender heart for showing the love of Jesus to others.
