Chapter 12, Page 10, Book 17

Each day comes bearing its own gifts. Untie the ribbons.

Ruth Ann Schabacker

December 10th

May no gift be too small to give, nor too simple to receive which is wrapped in thoughtfulness and tied with love.

L.O. Baird

Today, the second Sunday of Advent, we untie the gift of Love.  In a world where worry, not peace prevails, stir up that good news again.  This Christmas make it real in our hearts.  Love changes everything.

Genuine love will always feel urged to communicate joy - to be a joy 
giver.  Mankind needs joy.

Lawrence G. Lovasik

Never have we needed joy and peace more than now.  Like a golden ribbon run through a garland of lights, love entwines every aspect of the season.

Love came down at Christmas,
Love all lovely, Love Divine,
Love was born at Christmas,
Star and Angels gave the sign

Christina Rossetti

There are many ways to show our love to others and today’s gift suggestion is to:

Mind their furry babies.  This could be the best gift for people with pets, especially if they intend to go away on holiday and need someone to look after Rover.  You may also enjoy having some furry company around.

The Christmas spirit — love — changes hearts and lives

Pat Boone

Without God's love, we wouldn't have Christmas, now we have to exhibit that live in our lives.

We use the word LOVE casually in this society, but it never does go out of style and is the BEST gift. Taught by the ONE who is LOVE!

All so true. Hope you are enjoying the season.

Another great gift idea! What I wouldn't give to find someone to watch Macie and Gracie carefully, lovingly. Their kennel fee last month was nearly as much as our monthly mortgage payment.


giving the gift of joy is a great idea indeed. "Genuine love will always feel urged to communicate joy - to be a joy giver."
