For the most precious gifts of all.
During the past few weeks, most of us have been on Christmas shopping mode. Hopefully, you are done fulfilling that list. I am, I think. So that now we can get on attention mode. First, attention to the real meaning of Christmas: that God gave us Jesus. The only gift that truly keeps on giving. And second, attention to one another.
In a society where we never seem to have enough of it, time has become one of our most precious commodities. How we spend our time defines us. So, throughout the year, of course, but especially before this Christmas season flies by, and it will, let’s make it a point to hang out, sit by the Christmas tree, converse, hug, laugh, have a little Coquito, or a lot, and spend time together making beautiful memories.
After all, it’s not about the presents, it’s about being present. For Jesus and time…the most precious gifts of all, today and always, I am thankful.
What are you thankful for today?
Until next Thursday’s post…si Dios quiere.
“The most precious gift we can offer others is our presence. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers.”
The best gifts to give:
To your friend, loyalty;
To your enemy, forgiveness;
To your boss, service;
To a child, a good example;
To your parents, gratitude and devotion;
To your mate, love and faithfulness;
To all men and women, charity.
