Chapter 12, Page 4, Book 17



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

Ruth Ann Schabacker

December 4th

You give but little when you give of your possessions.  It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.  

Kahlil Gibran


God gave the gift of himself for Christmas, and you can do the same. 


The greatest present is the present

Your gift could be something you already have. It isn’t cheesy to give a previously owned gift if it is something of value to you and others. That could be a rare or collectible item, or something with sentimental value. Or it might be something more ordinary that would bless the receiver, such as a book that was meaningful to you.


Good stories never wear out, re-gift a book!

I have re-gifted in the past with success. I have also passed to others books I read that right I thought they would enjoy.

No guilt re-gifting ... I love it! Yes, I've passed small-but-treasured items that belonged to my dad on to my son. Troy was only 13 when his grandpa passed, but theirs was an extraordinarily close relationship.

We have a book by Kahlil Gibran - The Prophet. It's a beautiful book. I love the quote you used of his tonight.
