The Best Kind of Gift

In response to Sara's post:

Deep down inside we know
that the best gifts
don't come from catalogs
or shopping malls
They don't come in brightly-colored packages
or fancy envelopes
and they're not sitting under a tree somewhere...
The best gifts come from the heart.
They come when we look at each other
REALLY look at each other
and say 'You mean a lot to me'
or 'I'm so glad you're a part of my life'
A gift like that
will never go out of style
or be forgotten
or be returned for a different size.
A gift like that can change the world.

-Ron Atchison

And if that doesn't work,
Give them cash.

Then the servant brought out gold and silver jewelry and articles of clothing and gave them to Rebekah;
he also gave costly gifts to her brother and to her mother.
-Genesis 24:53

Lovely sentiment in the verse and lovely truth in the after thought! I just wish someone would make me some frosted Christmas cookies, they can be frosted in plain white, no decorations...I just love frosting.

I would love to make you some nice buttery frosted sugar cookies. Come on over and I'll put on the coffee (tea?) and we'll have a wonderful time. You too, Deb. And anyone else who wants to. There, tuck this invitation in your pocket and when you find my place in heaven, take me up on it....hugs...Won't it be great!! (meanwhile I'm going to make some cookies and take a pic just for Pat.)
