the white stocking
a few years ago, my mom gave me a special white stocking
with the following christmas message inside.
i copied her & sewed some up for my church girlies,
because i love it's reminder that christ is the reason for the season. ♥
for i was hungred, and ye gave me meat;
i was thirsty and ye gave me drink:
i was a stranger & ye took me in:
naked & ye clothed me:
i was sick and ye visited me:
i was in prison & ye came to me.
then shall the righteous answer him,
saying, lord, when saw we thee
an hungred, and fed thee?
or thirsty & gave thee drink?
or when saw we thee sick,
or in prison, and came unto thee?
and the king shall answer and say unto them,
verily i say unto you,
inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren,
ye have done it unto me.
just think...what gifts can i give the savior this year?
i was alone, and you sat by me.
i was discouraged, and you cheered me up.
i was feeling lost, and you showed me the way.
i was sad, and you cried with me.
i was overwhelmed, and you helped me.
i was grieving and you stayed with me.
i didn't understand, and you tutored me.
i was different and you didn't judge me.
have the merriest christmas & remember:
the true joy of christmas is the blessing we receive when we serve his children.
