THE PERFECT GIFT
Linda M. Penn
Are you in search of that perfect gift for your child, your spouse, your friend? And what if you can’t find it?
I saw a segment on TV last week about the latest toy craze – hatching eggs. Apparently stores sell out as soon as they get a new shipment.
I remember well searching for Cabbage Patch dolls for my two daughters one Christmas. I found a lady who made them – problem solved! At least temporarily! After Christmas, stores had bunches of them. I wonder what my now adult girls ever did with those dolls?
We try so hard to make everything perfect for the holidays but in reality, there is no perfect gift – EXCEPT GOD’S GIFT OF JESUS TO US. Let’s all endeavor to keep that in mind as we rush about this Christmas season.
Let’s try giving more of our TIME instead of giving in to the hustle and bustle activities. Those relationships we build bring more lasting memories. I’ve asked my daughters about their favorite memories of our family Christmases when they were little. They recalled Aunt Freda’s annual Christmas morning breakfasts with Grandma, their aunts, uncles, and cousins, and not those Cabbage Patch dolls!
Hoping you and yours have a very Merry Christmas!
Come back the first week in January. BLOG TITLE: “WHAT DID YOU DO AT SCHOOL TODAY?”
