“And when we give each other Christmas gifts in His name, let us remember that He has given us the sun and the moon and the stars, and the earth with its forests and mountains and oceans–and all that lives and move upon them. He has given us all green things and everything that blossoms and bears fruit and all that we quarrel about and all that we have misused–and to save us from our foolishness, from all our sins, He came down to earth and gave us Himself.”
― Sigrid Undset
A long two-liner today, but it’s a message that hits home with me this time of year.
As much as I like gifts at Christmas, I love people even more. And this holiday season, I feel completely blessed with family, friends, church peeps, fellow bloggers and the wonderful people I have yet to meet. A coffee maker, clothing or gift cards to the mall are all nice gifts, but will never replace the love and comfort felt when surrounded by oxygen-breathing humans. It’s my social nature, I suppose, and I can’t imagine life without it.
So, my holiday wish for you is the gift of people – for smiles, hugs, love and three-sizes-big hearts. They can’t be wrapped and placed under the Christmas tree, but neither can the gift of a Savior.
Have a wonderful Christmas, holiday, or time to relax. Be safe with your people and enjoy!
