Treasured Gifts

Christmas is about the ultimate GIFT from God,

HIS precious son JESUS.

During this time of year as we give and receive gifts from loved ones, neighbors and friends, I find myself thinking about the gifts that God gives me each day and the ones He has given me over the years. MY FAMILY & FRIENDS are GIFTS! Gifts that I treasure and love. However, with the business of life, just like some of the things in my home that I love, I don't always find the time to enjoy them! I so want to find the time!

Some of the treasured things that I own spend most of their life in my basement. I only pull them once or twice a year to use during holidays. When they are out I reflect on how special they are and why. Maybe it is because they were given to me by someone very dear to me. Maybe it is because I received them during a very special time in my life... Whatever the reason is, the fact remains, even though I do not use these items regularly they are DEAR to me! That is how it is for all of the special people in my life. Even though I do not speak to or see them often they are dear to me!

May the Lord Bless THEM and keep THEM, and may HE bring THEM GREAT JOY and PEACE this holiday season and throughout the NEW YEAR!


  1. Love you, Dawn!!! May the Lord bless and keep YOU this year, too :)

  2. Amen Dawn. You are dearly loved by so many because you are the one and only Dawnie!
