A pair of Hopalong boots and a pistol that shoots is the wish of Barney and Ben. Dolls that’ll talk and will go for a walk is the hope of Janice and Jen, and mom and dad can hardly wait for school to start again… The list goes on and on, but as the season begins to look a lot like Christmas once more, it brings apprehension of gift giving. Stress of getting the right gift, staying on budget, and not forgetting anyone on the list can put a damper on what many deem “the most wonderful time of the year.”
My sweet and amazing friend Jacky has the incredible “gift” of gift giving. Today she and I go through practical ways to be a cheerful giver, plan ahead, and be mindful of our motive for giving! Jacky works in aviation and is passionate about following Christ. She believes God has uniquely created us with exciting divine destinies that await us, if we choose to accept the mission. She considers being generous as one of the great opportunities we have to further His Kingdom on this side of eternity!
Let’s find joy in investing in others with simple, profound, and meaningful gifts this season. After all, we all hope to be seen, known, and loved, and what better way to do it than by giving cheerfully, and creatively?!
