Gifts From the Heart

There is an article in the Dayton Daily News, "Teacher treasures gift from student with 'nothing to give but cereal."  The story reports that an elementary teacher in Kennewick, Washington received the marshmallows from a student's Lucky Charms Cereal as a Christmas gift because this student had nothing else to give.  "Because," she said, "everyone knows marshmallows are the sweetest part."
"All my kiddos are super sweet and giving," she said.  "Kids are naturally kind and loving.  The world kind of hardens us sometimes. Be grateful for what you have, and what others give you.  It all truly comes from the deepest part of their hearts."

Remember this Christmas to remember to count our blessings and celebrate our families, whether biological or heart families, and all of our friends, neighbors, co-workers, church members, and acquaintances who are waiting to be friends.  Christmas is so much more than presents we receive or give, but instead the presence of each other.

"If we walk in the light as God himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, God's Son cleanses us from all sin."  1John 1:7

Remember to show your light to others and remind them of the true message of Christmas, the birth of Jesus Christ.  Have a happy and wonderful Christmas and give the most powerful gift of all!  Love from the heart!
