A Wish for Comfort and Joy
I put the very best gifts in the box pictured above. They are for you.
Our rational minds know that our very best gifts don’t come in a beautifully wrapped box, or from the mall, but our protective hearts make those the gifts that we seem most comfortable giving and receiving.
Exchanging stuff is easy. Exchanging love, peace, comfort and joy takes a little more investment. To really give our very best gifts we have to open our hearts to the possibility of pain, rejection, hurt and suffering. That exposure and vulnerability is exactly what it takes to give freely and to receive whole-heartedly.
Think about the one gift you want and need in your life right now. Then remember that you are free to give and receive that really important gift anytime. Forgiveness, understanding, compassion … whatever you need. You can be an innocent bystander watching your gifts fly by or you can become an active participant and embrace your gifts.
Go there. Do that. Ask for it. Receive it. And then give it away because someone else needs it too.
I wish you and your family comfort and joy and the gifts you need, want and deserve today and everyday. Please take the image above and use it. Give it away. Share it. Print it and put it in your wallet. I made it for you. It’s uncopyrighted and free for you to use however you’d like.
Comment below with the gifts you’d most like to give and receive.
