A Gift worth giving

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

During this Christmas season many people stress themselves out and may become depressed due to their inability to provide what they want for their loved ones. Often times we allow this to be the season of beat down. Yes, I said that and what I mean is that you may beat yourself down because you’re unable to do better than you did last year or you can’t get that special gift that you know your loved one desires.

Don’t feel bad it’s a human feeling, however, we are responsible for our actions. Are you responding this year the same way you responded last year? Are you allowing this season which is a season of giving to become a dreaded time of year? It is the season of giving not simply because of what we give but rather what God gave to us, “His gift” His only Son Jesus Christ.

Don’t forget the true meaning of Christmas. It is a time that we as Christians celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is then and only then that you can remember and take to heart the message in the above quote. There is power in the things that we deem very small. Sure it’s good to give tangible gifts, however, in the midst of your busy endeavors to fulfill the wants of your loved ones don’t forget passers by or that sister that was put on your heart who may be going through this year because her loved one is no longer here this Christmas. Place a phone call, send a card. If you see her at church take an extra minute to greet her with an endearing look into her eye and embrace her with a hug. This can turn a life around.

Give the gift of Authentic caring this Christmas and always. That’s a gift worth giving.

Merry Christmas!
