Last Sunday night the altar was filled with gifts for children.

Sunday night, December 7th was not just the anniversary of D Day, it was also the annual Toyland concert at First Baptist Church in Fernandina Beach.

 

Buddy Mullins, formerly of The Gaithers sang beautifullly but the music didn't move me nearly as much as the overwhelming amount of gifts and toys that covered the altar. 

 

Representatives from the Marine Corp took the toys so they could be given out to needy children the Saturday prior to Christmas.

 Good morning Sybyl. This timely year it is all about giving to others. Too bad that we can't do this all year long. It is good to hear that the event was a huge success.

Nestor & Katerina,  I do too and all the toys that were donated stay in our county.

Michael,  I agree that we who have should share more with those in need.

Our alter was filled with food this past Sunday for a local food bank.  The needs are so great this time of year.

Good afternoon Sybil ... a Toyland concert and many toys to be seen ... everywhere.  It sounds like it was a great event and many opened their hearts to give.
