The best gift.... Is there any gift that we could ever receive that would bring more pleasure than the ones that we give away? It is true that giving is better than receiving. Please let us all remember that the holidays can be a sad time for many. Is there someone in your community who will be alone for Christmas dinner, a single mom struggling to make Christmas joyous for her children, a shut-in forgotten or alone in the world? If each one of us would bring one small ray of hope into someone's life, then together the light of Christ will shine more brightly this Christmas season. Nothing under the tree could feel better than that!
Is a single heart rejoicing over what you did or said?
Does the one who's hopes were fading now with courage look ahead?
Did you waste the day or use it? Was it well or sorely spent?
Did you leave a trail of kindness? Or a scar of discontent?
As you close your eyes in slumber do you think that God will say,
"You have earned one more tomorrow by what you did today?"
"The scent of the rose lingers on the hand that gives it"
~MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL~
