The day after Thanksgiving, Home Depot and Lowe's have their small Poinsettias on sale for .99. We bought a bunch! Next year we will buy lots more! We printed up a fun little note, tied it up with some ribbon and stuck it safely inside the plant.
Then, one evening at dusk, after reading our Advent scripture, we piled into the car and headed out on our sneaky adventure. Each family member chose a few families to bless and we carefully pulled off the secret Poinsettia drop off mission. Poinsettia on the front porch! Ring the doorbell kind of obnoxious like...and run, run, run. It was so much fun! I'm pretty certain that a few people spotted us...but I know there were also a few who may never know.
It is true that it is more fun to give!
Enjoy the season of giving...and may the gift of Jesus outshine them all!
If you'd like a PDF of the Christmas Cheer note we used, send me an email. Ill send it right out!
