It is almost that time of the year when we open our hearts and give to those who need it the most. This precious little girl called 911 and explained to them that her family currently couldn't afford a Christmas tree.
Not realizing the impact it had on the dispatcher, something incredible happened next. After figuring out where the call came from, and because this little girl hung up, police performed an act of kindness that this family will never forget. Two officers drove to the store to pick up a Christmas tree, then delivered it straight to their door.
It's an awesome story that shows how much something like this can mean to a person. Her face lights up and just that alone will bring TRUE Christmas joy to your heart. more >>
It was a dream come true for 15-year-old Lucia Funaro. She was given the chance to sing the National Anthem in the world's most famous arena, Madison Square Garden, on Monday night. The Garden of Dreams Foundation teamed up allowing multiple kids battling illness take part in many different pre-game ceremonies. This all took place during the New York Rangers hockey game.
Lucia went through several life-threatening situations from birth until a later age. She had open-heart surgery at only three months old to repair two holes that doctors found. Then Lucia was diagnosed with Trisomy 18 and an early stage of cancer. Along with many other problems that continued arising, Lucia continued to remain calm during the whole process. Just imagine spending your day at home trying to take a bath with a Broviac catheter coming out of your chest. It was truly a heart-wrenching situation and is hard for any parent to deal with.
But, with beautiful Lucia, no day was a bad day. Her smile and love for all things around her made everyone SMILE. She spent two years of her life on chemotherapy just so the cancer would stop spreading. Most children born with this many problems don't last very long. more >>

Throughout our lives we are going to feel that we might have been treated unfairly in a situation. Not everything in life is going to go the way we want it to. When being mistreated spans over a long period of time, we may find ourselves struggling with resentment.
We often find ourselves resenting others due to insults, bad words, and injustice. But, if we let this linger in our lives it can cause havoc. It can cause us to hurt internally and hurt those around us. Our actions rub off on others even if they are not the cause of the pain. When this happens we must look to a higher power for guidance. The word of God can help us overcome the resentment we may feel.

God's one desire is a relationship with us. If you ask God to reveal Himself to you, He most definitely will. Listen to this man's spoken word below showing us all that God exists all around us: more >>
