Christmas Gifts – From the Heart

Christmas Gifts pdf photo

Mary, the mother of Jesus must have possessed these gifts in her heart throughout the whole pregnancy and delivery of Baby Jesus. Think about the gifts she was able to give to her Son – Jesus – BECAUSE — HE was her Gift.   

While we desire and attempt to give good gifts at Christmas, let’s remember  to give these unwrapped gifts of the heart, only possible through the power of the Gospel.

We who know the Lord Jesus Christ can always give gifts to others no matter how life changes. Here is a simple acrostic of the word CHRISTMAS of a few of the many gifts we can give that are not wrapped in beautiful paper, but in our hearts.

Be sure to nurture these gifts in your own heart – gifts that cannot be taken away from you.  Merry Christmas!  -Jeri Lynn
