The Gift of your PRESENCE

Colossians 1:28 - We proclaim him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ.

I've been wowed this weekend by another blogger's humble introspect into her own life and her selfless pledge to give her family what they need... her attention! I wanted to share her lovely post with you, so that you can read it for yourself (click the title of this post to go there and read it). I think that it is a timely reminder as the holidays approach that the best gifts do not come in brightly colored packages with satin bows. Your best gift is yourself. This is the gift that Christ gave us. This is the gift that we are called to give.

Proverbs 14:1 - The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.

May you be ministers of grace, love, and gentleness in your homes... may your relationships be the foremost thing on your hearts and minds. I pray God's blessings over all of you this Christmas season, and I pray that the Giver of all good things blesses you with all your needs and the desires of your hearts as you seek and worship Him.

I am taking Beth's advice and putting my all into my family this week. Today is my husband's birthday, so it's a great day to start!

That was interesting to read about blogging. I don't take much time to write my blogs but can see that it could become an addiction.



Some posts on this blog contain affiliate links or sponsored links. I receive a small commission whenever a product is purchased through an affiliate link. Sponsored links are paid for by a company who wishes to improve their Google ranking, but I always check to make sure these are reputable sites and never allow any links that are questionable to be placed.

The links in my "Sweet Linkage" section are either sponsored links or personal links that I find interesting (including the links to the blogs that both of my teen children run).

I occasionally run ads on my blog in exchange for money or traded advertising, or receive products in exchange for a review or giveaway posts. I also participate in campaigns by brands that offer to pay me to write about their products after using them. Any post that is sponsored will be noted as such. All opinions expressed on are my own, and any review, give-away, sponsored post, graphic ad, or product that I mention or link to are ones that I believe are reputable and worthy companies.
