Tim and I had a discussion the other day about Christmas gifts. I told him that this year I wanted him to buy me a gift on his own. You see for the past few years we have gotten something together. Buying a gift this way is ok but a little impersonal. I have to admit I was feeling a little put out because I buy all the gifts, wrap all the gifts, and cook all the food. I felt like this year he could at least by this one gift.
He slowly accepted the challenge. Now he is badgering me on what I want. I explained that I wanted something from the heart and if I told him what to buy that would be too easy. He is now on the hunt. Last night he broke the can opener. I explained that would not be an acceptable gift.
I told the ladies at the clothes closet what was going on and asked what they would ask from their husband. One lady shouted, “show me the money”. One lady said, “ be careful you may end up with an appliance. “
I know that this is all very trivial but I am excited to see how it all turns out. Even if Tim buys me 10 passes to the bowling alley I know that he has been thinking of me.
Isn’t it exciting to know that God has been thinking of us since the beginning of time? The gift he gave us is beyond compare.
