Welcome to Day 11 of the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways for 2017!
The Rules: Each day will have its own giveaway that will run for 7 days. You can enter all of the giveaways or just the ones that strike your fancy. Many of the giveaways will only be open to US residents (shipping costs you know 🙁 sorry), but I will have a few open internationally.
Every day will have a special word that you will need to put together the special quote for the Day 12 giveaway. That quote and entry in one of the other 11 giveaways will be required to enter the Day 12 giveaway.
This giveaway is for ‘The Mistletoe Kiss’ by Janet Lee Barton, ‘Legacy of Love’ by Christine Johnson, and ‘Soaring Home’ by Christine Johnson.
Today’s special word is: this
A precious gift to all of us from God is our memories. They shape who we are. They make our lives fuller. They make us better people. There are lots of instances in the Bible where God tells people (and us) to remember things.
I have been blessed to have many good Christmas memories, but I am going to share just one here with you today. When I was a kid, we couldn’t afford very much. My mom learned to sew and made our clothes so that we could save money. I had a doll that I loved so much that I carried it around with me everywhere. The doll became so worn that she broke in a few places making it unsafe for me to carry her around. That Christmas, my mom and dad presented me with my doll rejuvenated. They had made her a new cloth body from scraps of material that my mom had. In addition, she sewed me a whole wardrobe of clothes for my ‘new’ doll complete with a DIY cardboard wardrobe to hold her and her new clothes in.
I must’ve been about 8ish at the time and I remember crying on Christmas morning because I was sure that doll was gone forever.
That memory is one of many reminders of the love that my parents showed me.
Now it’s your turn. What good Christmas memories do you have?
