TGR Stories Part 2...

You should be visiting theGiftRevolution.com to read the stories there [and participating] but if you haven't passed by I'll share some of my stories here.  After you read these, you can go to the site.

1. I got my friend/co-worker a Hello Kitty ornament. She spent some time with me while Heredes was on TGR road trip.  We stopped by Target that day and she pointed it out. She almost bought it, but I convinced her not too. I later bought it, wrapped it and left it on her desk.

2. A group of us drove to the Broward County School Bus pick up place [pretty sure that's not the official name] at 4:30 am.  We served Dunkin Donuts coffee, donuts, and gave out gift baggies with TGR cards to all the bus drivers as they prepared to pick up students.  I have a new appreciation for them.  Great job guys!!  You are appreciated!!

3. Today, I put some GR cards/JuiceBlendz free smootie cards to foam stockings as a gift to my friends at Fed Ex, UPS, DHL, and the Post Office.  Hopefully they'll catch on and participate- since there are only 6 days left.


4.  Our Sawgrass Campus Pastor was out last week on a GR Rally in Arkansas with Pastor Troy & our Executive Pastor.  Him and his wife are expecting twins.  At work she sat at the front office and we chatted a bit and she was telling me that they hadn't put up any decorations for Christmas and with the babies growing she hasn't had much energy after work to pull things out and setup.  So, as a GR, birthday gift, and because she helps Heredes with some work stuff ;) we surprised her at night by going over and helping her decorate her house.  Her expression was priceless!!

So 6 days left.  Guess what?  This is a global movement to inspire the world.  Where you are right now, that's where you can start.  Take time to think, pray, ask- how can you gift someone. How can you gift someone today.  Let's not forget the Greatest Giver & Greatest Gift- "For God so loved the world that He GAVE His one and only Son JESUS. That whoever believes in Him will not die, but have everlasting life."  -John 3:16

Remember, "Because when a gift is given, whether BIG or SMALL, it makes a world of DIFFERENCE."

What a darling girl you are Marcy. Believe me when I say that I have not stopped and I just feel so useful when I am thinking of others.

This is an awesome thing. Can you imagine what next year will be like? I have passed it on to others who had no idea this existed.

Have a great weekend!
Deanna :)

Marcy,
Your serving heart is so beautiful, daughter. I praise God every day for having you at FRC, surrended by beautiful people that encourage you just for the simple things you do. This is God, He always knows what is the best place for us.

I love you...Mami

Hi Marcy
I just wanted to wish you and your husband a very Merry Christmas. I won't be back on until next Monday as I am having a house full of guests this week. I'm sure I will have indulged in overeating and will be too full to roll myself over to the laptop!

What an amazing feat you have accomplished. I hope that I have helped push this along for you over here in San Antonio.

I have to tell you that my friends and family have had their own stories and with them comes that beautiful moment where their faces light up with wonder. Not only does it make the receiver feel good about what just happened to them but the giver, is blessed with knowing that they made a small difference in the lives of others.

Truly you have given me a gift beyond compare.

Best Wishes,
Deanna :)
