Spiritual gifts....

It's that time of year when most people stress out about buying gifts. What to buy, who to buy and how much to spend? Not me; I give to someone less fortunate and to my family and friends; I give out "hugs."

Women's Daily Devotional -
Unlike earthly parents, God the Father gives perfect gifts because they are spiritual gifts uniquely suited to each of us. There's no such thing as a Christian who's been spoiled rotten with spiritual gifts. God gives gifts that fit us perfectly, gifts that fill and complete us.

Yes sister, you are so right. This year i have been able to help a lot of people, and family, so i am thankful that i have been so blessed to do this. I don't expect anything this year, all i want is the warmth and love of my family, and a continual blessing of peace. Have a wonderful and blessed holiday...i appreciate you much.

Your friendship and facebook hugs have been a blessing all year.
I appreciate you big sis.

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
James 1:17 (NIV)

I'm thankful that, "Every good and perfect gift comes down from the Father of lights." Love that verse. He knows us each so deeply, that is a gift in itself and love beyond compare freely to all. What better thing could there possibly be?

Would that be nice. I need to do more of that. I am not very huggy but I think I would like to be! So here I go...I am gonna start scaring the wits out of my friends when I hug them, :) It;ll be kinda fun!

Oh I promise I did not send that snow your way! It is cozy though isn't it! Hope you didn't plan to travel for the holidays...I have been watching the news & that doesn't look promising! Book & cocoa...that is all you need -Oh & a window seat to watch those big fluffy snowflakes! Take Care & stay in China! :)

An excellent post. True, spiritual
gifts are unending, always enhance
and respect our personality and
come without conditions.

Merry Christmas!
