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

Some Special Gifts
Source Unknown

Here a few suggestions for special gift:

a firm handshake to a shaky soul,

a kind word to a lonely person

a warm smile to the disheartened

a sincere concern for someone troubled,

a feeling of compassion for the neglected,

a comforting thought for the bereaved,

a respect for the dignity of others

a defense of the rights of individuals,

a word of witness to help a feeling soul,

a Merry Christmas to all.

Today’s Gift suggestion is :

Mason Jar Tea Lights

If you have a mason jar and some tea lights, decorate the outside of the jar with glitter, lace, ribbons, decoupage or plain ole’ permanent markers.

Put the tea light inside and you have a gift to light up anyone’s holiday.

Remember:  the most meaningful gifts aren’t the kind you wrap at all.  They’re the kind that wrap you up in love.

A  Christmas candle is a loving thing:
It makes no noise at all,
But softly gives itself away.
