The Elves are Back: The TwELFth Day of Christmas 2015

For a few years now, elves from the North Pole have stopped in on our little abode starting at midnight on the first day of Christmas. Leaving little trinkets - gum, Hershey Kisses, notepads etc. - but also leaving behind a letter for the girls to appreciate. The appreciation may not register until further down the road, but I have a feeling each letter represents a seed that will either flourish or dry up all depending on how well it's cared for and applied. The letters, while giving some sense of what goes on up north during this hectic time of year, also share anecdotal notes on life as well as the true meaning of Christmas.

The TwELFth Day of Christmas:

December 12, 2015

You girls were wonderful last night! Through some amazing technology, we were able to listen and watch and we are so proud of you. Everything went so well. The singing, the backstage jobs…everything. What a special thing to be part of! And to think there may have been someone in the audience that didn’t know Jesus you may have introduced them to our Lord and Savior. Now that’s amazing!

Are you enjoying your gifts? So now that you’ve been getting some little gifts, I think it’s time that you think about giving some gifts. I need you girls to think about what you can give to others during this Christmas season. I know you gave away some of your stuffed animals and some toys to your new cousin…so what else can we give? How about some money from your piggy banks to the church? Or some more toys to children that don’t have as much as you? I want you to pray about it because giving is very important. It’s the reason why we get to heaven some day and be with Jesus and loved ones that aren’t with us on Earth anymore.

I hope you girls have a wonderful Saturday. The big guy is actually going to be in your area tomorrow. I hope you stop by to see him. Whatever you do, enjoy your time with family.

We love you, girls!

Merry Christmas!

Your Elves,

Bon Bon, Stocking and Poinsetta
