The White StockingDecember 11th, 2012 | Posted by in Perspectives
Several years ago I was frustrated by the commercialism of Christmas. At that time my children were young. I wanted a family activity that would bring us together, and so I wrote this poem and made a stocking out of white satin and gold trim. The idea was that we would each give a “gift” to the Savior for Christmas. Each gift was to be some kind of service that we did for someone else. We wrote our ideas on small decorative pieces of paper and tied them with silver and gold ties then put them in the stocking. This stocking is now full of the various things our family has done for others during the holiday season.
