your gifts

Off Season

Last night many of us went to visit our friend who is 95 and not up to making it to Wednesday gatherings. We’ve missed his presence, so we travelled the few miles to his home to bring some Christmas cheer and holiday songs. It was beautiful and to me, meaningful.

Driving home I thought about “presents” and “presence”. He was honored by our visit. Christmas is a time to honor Jesus yet we seem to give our “gifts” to others more than Christ. Do you think it’s always been this way?

I want to give more gifts to Christ and “my presence” with Him will be that gift. He doesn’t require gadgets, glamour, or special wrapping. Just me… even if we’re both silent.

Will you take time to share your presence with Jesus this Christmas?

I think both of you will find it the perfect gift!
