The Gift

The Gift of Love


In the midst of this wonderful season of celebration, guard your heart and don’t get lost in traditions of men.


Guard   your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life. Proverbs 4:23




Take time to reflect on the true joy this time of year brings. It began the first Christmas when God sent His Son Jesus as the greatest gift to us all.  Celebrate the gift of Love.  God with us!!!  Love with us!!!  Emmanuel!!!


  1. “Don’t get lost in the traditions of men…” Love this and the proverb you’ve chosen!

      Thanks Jessie! This verse does put things in perspective. 🙂

  2. Well said. I couldn’t agree more. My kids ( 5 ) between the ages 16-10 know the true meaning of Christmas and why it’s celebrated. Thank you for sharing! God bless you abundantly.

      Good for you and your children! I just read a post of a mom tortured by the lies she has told her children in reference of who brings the gifts in “Christmas”. It was pretty sad. She can’t keep up with the lies and illusions. That is not Christmas, not much joy there. Happy for those that celebrate true Christmas. 🙂

  4. I don’t think it is wrong to tell Children that Santa brings gifts, it’s just a fairy story that they will grow out of but it is wrong not to tell them the real meaning of Christmas in a way they can understand and enjoy.

    Christian Love Anne.

    • It is a personal choice. We enjoy our holiday and gifts with no extras. People all around have different views on “santa”. I am happy with our Christmas celebration and traditions.
