Merry Christmas || What to Give the Birthday Boy
Ed had his gifts wrapped almost two weeks before Christmas. Of course, this wasn't easy for me, because I kept staring and touching the colorfully wrapped presents, trying to guess which one was mine. Starry-eyed, I'd stand there, shaking one of them and listening for the sound it makes. This has gone on for over a week. Yesterday—yet again—I was shaking one of the presents and I wondered... I wondered if Jesus was going to get any gifts this year. It is his birthday, after all. Like me, would he have gifts underneath his "tree"? Is he excited, trying to hear if the gift rattles or thumps as he shakes it?
This year, I want to get him something, but I don't know what. What do you give to someone who is God and created everything and who IS everything? I could give him my heart but he has it already. He has my love. My time...hmm. I definitely could give him more of that. What are you getting Jesus this Christmas?
Have a wonderful Christmas, full of love and cheer. Create memories, make someone else smile today and if you'd like to give Jesus your heart today, you can, right here! Have fun!
