The wonderful thing about handmade gifts, no matter how frugal, is the thought that goes into the making.
gift may look ordinary but when given with love, becomes a treasure for
a lifetime. Christmas reminds us of God's extraordinary gift of
salvation and the eternal treasure we have in Jesus Christ.
Several years ago, I was creating a Christmas present for the family, a self-published cookbook featuring recipes my grandmother had collected and created over decades. While interviewing her for the biological section, she began to talk about her courtship with my late grandfather.
I think that we all have to set aside a little time in our busy lives to try to make just one item that comes from the heart!! Actually last year we did that for our family. Everything had to be baked. Everyone loved it!!
