Christmas Thoughts

For any family that read my posts, this is for you:

If you have no idea what to give the girl that has everything, I have a few suggestions for ya!

1) Starbucks Gift Certificate

2) Lowe’s Gift Certificate

3) Target Gift Certificate

4) Old Navy Gift Certificate

If all else fails: STARBUCKS always works for me! I miss my frappacino’s in the morning!

On a more sober note–

I pray that all those traveling this Christmas holiday will have safe traveling mercies.

I pray that all those who have a deep sadness during this time of year, feel the peace of Christ’s love in their hearts…and that this love somehow replaces a piece of your sorrow.

I pray that those that are alone this Christmas, feel a part of something bigger than themselves. I pray they’re blessed unexpectedly on Christmas, so that they know it’s none other than God telling them that He loves them.

I pray for all our troops and their families, that they are able to celebrate via internet or phone. I pray they still feel connected though a world apart.

I pray for the safety of our troops in battle.

Most importantly, I pray that God and His Son’s love overcome the commercialism of December 25th. I pray that those out there reading this think about God’s beautiful gift to us, through Christ’s birth.

This is the real reason we give gifts to one another…to celebrate the gift of Christ and His love for us. Because….if all of us at least for 2 minutes gives thanks where thanks are due this day will have a lot more meaning.

5 more days till December 25th…but you’ve got every day to share the love of Christ.

Every day should be Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all of you!

  1. Your presents are at your mom’s house in the event you may be a little curious…….(;>

    I agree with you totally, Every Day is a day from Christ and we should be grateful with all our hearts that we know Him and trust Him to guide us in all things. “In everything, acknowledge Him.”
    Share the love, share the story and above all, share Him with your life, as a testimony to what He has done for you.

  2. Lowe’s has anything I need for my home. I’m getting ready to re-paint my kitchen and I want to replace the sinks in my master bath. Rather than spend cash I don’t have, a Lowe’s G.C. would really come in handy. 🙂

  3. Cash would be good. FYI : Gordmans never charges or takes money off the gift card when gone unused for a period of time! 😉
    Pet peeves are welcome here! I have plenty myself.
