The List at Christmas Gifts… to people, that need nothing. They are so silly. The rich, playing to the rich, while the homeless man stands in a line for soup, without meat. The matter of giving is questioned. The percentage of your heart, that is counted, closely. Do you have more than you need? Do you have enough to share? A coat, extra socks, shoes unused, all of it a wealth of promise. to someone out there… that has none. The seasons help, with bringing light, but do not fully. show the plight. It is an everyday event, to be an Angel… and to be sent. Put on your wings, give up your wallet. Remember you too, are among the few, that have more, than your share, of the score. Things gained, can be lost. do not lose, but choose, to be more, then before. You will be counted… again, but not for sin. as you are saved by Grace, it is not a race. Bow your head… and then, make your case. Show your face, be lifted. You have been… “Gifted!”

Wow Ann, you are so right, our Christmas list includes so many people that don't need what we give them at all. I do agree with you - I do give but maybe not enough, this year thanks to you will be more, to the poor. Love you. Hugs and blessings, Jennifer.

I have been placing my poems in frames... bought cheap at the five and dime. I am gifting them. Just a thought. The value... determined by those that receive and what they thought they wanted... Hugs... Prayers... best wishes for your holidays... Ann
