Christmas Gifts

Every year I guess what my Christmas present is, and this year is no different.   Our conversation went something like this.

Gary:  I don't know what to get you for Christmas.

Me:  That should be easy...

Gary:  Well it's not.  I have no clue... you're hard to buy for.

Me:  Well then you must not be paying attention.  I'd love to have a new Ipod Touch  OR an Ihome  OR Itunes gift card. 

 Easy peasy... that's what I am!

Next day Gary proudly announced that he had overcome his 'gifters block' and my present was bought. 
 "You'll never guess!" He said.  

"I'm getting my new Ipod" I said 

"Not even close..." he said.

"Yea... right.." I said. ((giggle-giggle))

The UPS man came and Gary grabbed the package, then hurried back to the garage to 'put my present together' according to him.  'it came in 2 parts' *according to him*...
and I would be so surprised.  


 The very lightweight package got extremely heavy after gift wrapping...  and I'm 99% sure the above box is bricks....  and an Ipod of course.


Oh, the fun we have!  

Right Gary?  


Leaving the office for a week for Christmas break... 
 I'll spend time with family and friends 
and loving on the grandkids.


And on Christmas Eve I'll open my 
box of bricks & IPod Touch.  


And Gracie will discover that the Animal Planet door hanger/organizer that she stumbled across was intended for her. 


Disclaimer
*** Christmas is not about the getting of gifts or even the giving for that matter.  It is a time to remember the perfect gift...  Christ our Saviour.  The date that we observe is not exact...  and details of a story that has been passed down from generation to generation may differ a bit...  But the message is the same.  God loved us so much that He sent His own son to save us from our sins.  Only those whose hearts have been changed by His Gift know the true meaning of Christmas.  

Remember Him by treating others the way 
He would treat them.  

Show love, compassion, and forgiveness. 

 Discover the true meaning of Christmas.
