Back at the Five Minute Friday: GIFT
Every day is actually a perfect little gift, wrapped up and sent directly from my Father, my Creator, my Savior, my Redeemer. He takes the sunshine and delivers it bright in the morning, He allowed someone through history to realize that coffee beans were perfect to make the drink that would bless me each morning. He enabled me with the GIFT to teach and then be touched and inspired by the little gifts that arrive in my classroom each day, even on those days where I dragged myself to work. He gifted me with a family that is to die for. A husband of 21 years, a daughter of 20, a sister of 37, a mom, a dad, and a family of in-laws who are nothing but real family. Throughout the day, I receive GIFTS of a cool ocean breeze, a co-workers gentle smile, or a student’s appreciation.
What GIFT to I return to Him in exchange? My praise, my honor, my devotion, my loyalty, my willingness to share His work in my life. It will be nothing in comparison to His ultimate GIFT of His Son, whose love far surpasses all else I could ever dream of offering.
