I love giving gifts. Even better, I love giving gifts that won't break the bank and throw our budget into the red. I've been scouring the thrift shops in hopes of suitable gifts...just a little something to let those I love know that I care. Today I found four lovely gifts and two cookie tins for baked goods - all for half off! I spent less than $6 and was able to cross two people off my list.
Christmas isn't about how much money you spent on a gift. You have nothing to prove. Christmas is about love, sharing, and giving from the heart. It's the thought that counts. Jesus gave us the greatest gift of all and it wasn't purchased at some high-end department store or the mall.
Let us open our hearts and give the gifts of our love, time, and attention this holiday season, rather than only from our pocketbooks.
