This Is How I Show My Christmas Spirit

Tuesday, December 23, 2014

My fiancé and I live on a limited income like so many others have to who are disabled. So Christmas shopping is something very hard for us to do. So instead of sending cards with IOU'S in them I just look around and see what I can give to the people I care about for Christmas. Usually for my mom I give her a small box or case to hold jewellery and add a piece of mine as a gift. Same thing for my sister in law usually send her some of my jewellery that I never wear anymore. For my best girl friend, Jenny I remember something she really liked in our house and for Christmas or her birthday will wrap that item for her. Like for Christmas I am going to give her a watch that I got with a purse I ordered in the mail and a musical snow globe that she has seen and commented on before. For her two sons we are giving them each a Disney movie that they have seen at our house and liked. I am even going to give something have to our local charity before Christmas that I have been getting together. I don't know what my sons back in Texas are into anymore or my nephews so usually with my benefit check in January I send them a card with a gift card in it for Wal-mart so they don't feel left out but can get what ever they want. See no one ever keeps me informed what my immediate family are into like my kids and nephews so that is all can do for them. The day that changes then I will be able to surprise them with a real gift, but till that day that will have to do. See by giving what already have I am able to give Christmas gifts to others even though I can't go out and buy things that are brand new. Giving without stressing out about the cost and how am going to be able to do it. By doing that also makes me feel good knowing I am still giving to others and sharing the Christmas spirit with others.

    That is a Wonderful idea.. I love it.. It is not about the gift it is how it is received.. Jesus came to this world as a baby in a smelly stable and He is the key to the real Christmas.. Keep that Spirit going and remember things we can't take with us and stuff we love may not be the best but it is the heart of what you have found that gives joy... Thanks for all the reminders of such a unselfish joy of kindness.. In His Love and Grace Just Me Jane
