I saw this on a blog today and loved the idea, A white stocking to hang with the others to remind us what is really important during the holiday season.
|THE WHITE STOCKING|
For I was hungered, and ye gave me meat;
I was thirsty and ye gave me drink:
I was a stranger and; ye took me in:
naked and; ye clothed me:
I was sick and ye visited me:
I was in prison and; ye came to me.
Then shall the righteous answer him,
saying, Lord, when saw we thee
an hungered, and fed thee?
Or thirsty and; 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.”
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.
just think...what gifts can I give the Savior this year?
Thanks to Angie Dunn for her great blog....I always need inspiration and this just really helped me get into the Christmas Spirit.
