In the poem Memories of Redemption I wrote about shopping:
with those sweating warm
in winter wools
the higher floors
to secure the choicest gifts
and finding more
I admit that I enjoy gifting those I love with trinkets that will please, encourage and delight them and our Christmas tree is surrounded with brightly wrapped packages waiting to be given.
But what do any of us really need, who live in the richest of nations? So again this year, our most important shopping was done prayerfully at our computer keyboard as we honoured our loved ones by purchasing gifts in their names from Compassion's Gift Catalog.
These are gifts that help make a difference in the lives of children living in some of the poorest communities of the world. These gifts help provide clean drinking water, medical treatment, disaster relief, food supplies and much, much more. Meet vital needs and bring real joy with a Gift of Compassion.
Gifts include mosquito nets, soccer balls, chickens, goats, water filters, farm equipment, clean water and more. Gift prices range from $10 to $5000.
Why not take a few moments now to check out the assortment of gifts here.
If you are interested in making a long term difference on the life of a child, please consider sponsorship. For more information visit the Compassion website.
Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you. James 1:27 NLT
