I thank God for blessing us with many gifts every Christmas. I love to give gifts, but choosing the right gifts does not seem to be my strength. In fact, I have had two gifts returned to me before as the recipients did not find them useful. Of course, I felt hurt when I realised my gifts were not appreciated. As such, I always treasure gifts, regardless of whether they are useful at that point of time. I also try my best to buy appropriate gifts and pray that somehow they would be useful.
I am also reminded of the greatest gift I could ever receive ~ Jesus. Thank You so much for coming so that we could have eternal lives. Thank You that when we don't know what to do, we can ask You for wisdom. Thank you for giving us joy so regardless of our circumstances, we can stand strong. Thank You for giving us the meaning for living. Seriously, if I do not know how I can survive without knowing God.
We are the Reason (David Meece)
As little children, we would dream of Christmas morn
And all the gifts and toys, we knew we'd find
But we never realised a baby born one blessed night
Gave us the greatest gift of our lives
We were the reason that He gave His life
We were the reason that He suffered and died
To a world that was lost He gave all He could give
To show us the reason to live.
