A Gift, Not A Given

Sometime shortly before Christmas a local jeweler put up a new billboard. It wasn't the diamonds that caught my eye, it was the message, "Because she's a gift, not a given."

Now that's something I need to apply! No, not as an excuse to purchase extravagant gifts; rather to remind me how precious each family member and friend is to me. To help me keep perspective when I'm grumbling over daily tasks. And to grow in deep appreciation for the gracious gifts given to me.

Will you join me today in appreciating our very special gifts, our family and our friends. They certainly are not a given!
