I’m not one for big gestures or big presents. I was raised to be practical and frugal. I haven’t been able to shake that raising yet. I believe that doing little things on a consistent basis is my way of giving to those I love.
This time of year we give gifts to those we love. Sometimes it’s big gifts, sometimes small gifts. We attempt to show those in our lives that they are important to us and to our lives. Tomorrow we celebrate the birth of Christ. For we Christians, it’s a celebration not only of the birth of the Savior of the world but, a celebration of the biggest and best gift ever given. It’s Gods gift to all mankind. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16. Christ went on to give us an example of how we could live our lives in service to those around us. He showed us how to love one another, to be kind to each other, and to have respect for those placed in our lives.
Amy and I pray that in this Christmas season and in the coming new year, your life is filled with lots of the little things that let you know your loved and show your love. We can never match the grand gift God gave us but, we can spend what time we have here on earth giving a little to each other each day.
Have a very Merry and Blessed Christmas!!
