On Christmas God gave his biggest show of love—He gave himself! We’ll talk more about that on Christmas day. This is a “short” reminder of the greatest gifts of all: LOVE.
Today I have to make my choice of words short. I need to cramp two days of activities into one. I was planning on traveling tomorrow but to beat the much colder weather tomorrow, I have to travel today. Bundle up, you might say. I wish it was that easy! The colder it gets the stiffer and more painful my feet and legs… so I’m going to get busy packing, washing, having the oil changed in my car, picking up a present someone came to deliver yesterday (I was visiting a friend in a rehab center), cleaning up (I hate to come home to a messy house), etc. So I better get going with my To-Do-List for today.
While writing I got a phone call. Now I have to leave today! My daughter needs my crock-pot. She’s having a party for her husband’s birthday tomorrow, and the crock-pot is very much needed (that make me feel needed!). “Daughter, here comes the crock-pot wrapped in love!”
Let me just remind you of some beautiful things about love.
The list can go on and on. I just mentioned some things that can make Christmas more delightful. Let’s rejoice in God’s love for us and let’s show his love by being very loving to those around us. I don’t think there is a better gift we can give anybody, but love. Because love wraps up everything! The greatest of all is LOVE!
