Gifts That Last Forever

17 Dec

Decorations make the season dazzle! Within my view as I write these words, I see brilliant red poinsettias; Christmas angels sharing the top shelf of the bookcase; a little, red Christmas bear wearing a bright green sweater; a small, white Christmas tree on which hang stars of various colors and a special ornament. It’s in the shape of a black dog, a memory of Maggie who loved the season as much as I do. Have you decorated your home for the season? May I suggest a few special decorations you might consider? How about Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Generosity, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self Control? And where do you buy these? You don’t. They actually come as a gift, and they are more than decorations. They are life qualities that reside deep within even when the poinsettias are gone and the decorations are put away. In fact, to possess these gifts and to let them live within you is an honor to the one who gives them. To receive them, just kneel before the manger and look upon the presence of God. O come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord.
