I have an amazing Christmas. Mr share with you I have one and I were dealing with infertility and were not an amazing two year old, four year old in December two thousand and ten, over the next couple years. We wanted to be really intentional because we felt like we have lost out on memory. Again they have both done a memory making by having a rough Sarkozy adopted them from foster care. Are we really wanted to be intentional with our memory, and especially at Christmas time, and so I, make sure that I had all my Christmas shopping down and wept before December. First, so that the home of the December there could be tree with lots of present around there and they could see their names honour and really feel the magic of Christmas and We were out Christmas party, about ten days before Christmas,
and we came home and someone had into our homes, and who did up our Christmas gift and our tv and taken them. Good night. The great had on our children to fill in and stable or like these couldn't have everything we wanted to leaders pretend like everything was fine and we were gonna, go replace everything, but you know what the budget, I welcome you went in the stores, everything was gone. We were paying three four times the price, and so the sitting and I living room and we got O Connor door. That within giant bag full of wealth to Turkey remains on them and a boxer cookies and an envelope with cash in it Liza like family, come now, is the most amazing Christmas because we don't know within the gas and oil.
Open on Christmas morning. It was amazing I have to tell you that the Kurds its change everything. For me, I were pretty pessimistic when people like a Christmas, I might well have been December every year. Can't you plan ahead, like I'd, be that person, and I feel like Heavenly Father needed me. I feel that pain that year, so that and were game like charity and really now, every year we find a family and whenever we you know Dorado, ditch I leave a basket our box. I might back in that place because I know how it feels as a mom. You wanna give your kids everything and to not be able to provide for them. What
no magical Christmas. You wanted man, that's a breakthrough that really cool. They are a friend amongst us. I don't trust people that don't work with a lamp now that now that you ve had that are now that you ve had that experience You never view it again, the same yeah, that's all that is so powerful, I'm so glad you're Christmas gift got stolen. Getting now not so glad they got stolen, so that this whole story get involved, because if you just put him on the train that opium eligible but have been boring. This is much better. This is a much better way to go God. Why do go Santa Claus ago, Santa Claus and gods, people who showed up on the doorstep I kind of oak runner. This is that IRAN's regime,
our scripture that I had twenty and thirty five. In all things. I have shown you that by working hard in this way, we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said it is. Blushing to give he to receive, don't arose about said. Since you get more joy out of giving to others, you should put a good deal of the thought into the happiness that you are able to give. The other you go. It's giving theme our here on the day. Ramsay show we teach you to get out of. So that you can build. Well, so that you can retire with dignity so that you can be outrageously generous so that you can be the happiest you can possibly be because,
generous people happier people, then shellfish people, their kinder people, then salvaged Paypal, generous people are their highly attractive, though the kind of people you want to be there, the kind of people you want to hang around with the kind of people you want a moat, the kind of people you want, representing your business, the kind of people you want. Marrying your daughter, you just really it's hard to find something bad to say about generous people.
Billy, it's hard to find something bad to say about generous people in maybe we oughta wag, more embark lasher. Maybe that's what the seasons about reminding us that certainly were reminded by God. Sending his only and that's what this whole seasons all about, so where we go from here, gosh put yourself in a position that not only can you have the intent and the heart to be generous, but you actually have the freaking money, but yourself, tint and the heart to be generous, but you actually have the freaking money put yourself in a position that did you know if you give a single mom a thousand our cars.
You know if you do that ten times changes turned over lunch, so we ten grand site in Greenland as ten people comp lately transformed, I mean you ve been there.

Do that when you take her that, when you put tyres on that car now needs a tank, a gas?
your light bill paid through the end of next year. The shift is really a lot of money. It's just a matter paying attention, and you know the only way you can actually get where you can pay attention. Is you get your act together? So you need not worry about yourself are to be generous for Nord about shone like bill. That's why we teach the stuff we teacher.
