Sharing God's love with the world, one heart at a time.

True Gifts of Christmas


This Christmas card touches my heart  all the way through to my core.  It was sent by a lovely lady (and her daughter) that I met at the Assisted Living Community where I had worked before moving to Colorado.

Sometimes, when you meet a person, you just feel a heart connection.  That is how I felt as I got to know Delores.  She was feisty, straight forward, and had a heart of gold.  She had a way of bringing a smile to my face, and somehow always “knew” when I was troubled.

I am sharing this card with you, because to me, it breaks through the “busyness” and sometimes craziness of the season.  All the gifts, parties, and decorations pale in the presence of the simple acts of love that are shared on this beautiful card.

Delores, thank you for the love and smiles that you brought into my life.  And thank you for this special card…it will be displayed during  Christmas for years to come!  I will think of you each time I am reminded of what Christmas is all about…and what the True Gifts of Christmas are.  Those gifts are meant to be given year round, and are healing and life changing for both the giver and the recipient!

Merry Christmas to all!

  2. Oh my! The card does ‘say it all.’ It is certainly a unique card and the special message, whilst similar to some level with the messages of ‘goodwill,’ nevertheless, has that special message with an ummph!
    Merry Christmas to you and your family and let’s hope 2023 will be a covid-free year for mankind and that each of us do our bit to make the year a special one for others.
