We gather around our trees to exchange brightly wrapped packages and laughter, to make memories that will last for years.
I imagine pulling back the tape, lifting the paper, raising the lid, and here's the gift I see…
You leaving comments that encourage my heart.
You reading silently.
You sharing the happy, the hard.
When I think of all God has given me this year–my heart overflows when I think of you. Thank you for being here.
I have a gift I'll keep giving you too–words, written in love, sent to your heart, surrounded by prayers. And next time I see you, I'll throw in a hug too.
Merry Christmas, dear friends.
The LORD bless you
and keep you;
the LORD make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
the LORD turn his face toward you
and give you peace.
