Reaching out

By Christmas Eve, Ann Voskamp's upside down tree was all "reaching out." Not curling down, curling out. Reaching out. Ann has discovered,

Climbing ladders of doing doesn’t make your life grow bigger —

it’s reaching out with loving that makes your life grow bigger — better.

What's under your tree today? Ann shares with us a story about a little boy in Africa, who had one toy under his tree.

Ann writes,

Only what you have given away will ever give you joy.

When you give to the least of these, you give to the Greatest of All and get the greatest joy.

Ann met this child who eats ants off her dirt bedroom floor.
