You are the gift

As you enter your season of giving remember, dear ones, you are the true gift to others in your life. It is your light, your love, your willingness to share of your hearts and your talents that are the greatest gifts of all. The Christ child came into the world to bring the light of God, and so did you dear friends. Each one of you aspires to experience the love of God in your life, to become that love, and to share your unique gifts and talents with the world. Each of you is made of the very same light. Each of you is a precious gift from God and back to God. You are all so very unique and so very special.

So as you contemplate the presents you will share with one another this year, give from your heart of hearts. Rather than worrying as much about material giving, consider the gift of kind words, the gift of a hug, the gift of a smile to a stranger that looks as if they are in need of love. Consider giving of your talents - if you sing, give a song; if you bake, share your goodies; if you draw, create a set of greeting cards; if you love to make things, create magical gifts of love. If you love animals, you can walk a friend's puppies. If you love children, you can baby sit. If you are a compassionate listener you can give the gift of a friendly and understanding ear to another. Dear ones, it is the gifts of your heart that are the ones most treasured, most remembered, and most celebrated here upon the earth, for these are the gifts that truly bless you as you give them and bless the receiver with God's love as expressed through you.

Here in the heavens, we have no judgments about material giving. We love to see you share with one another in any form, for the the material world is yours to enjoy. However, many of you have had a hard year financially and are worried about how to create meaningful holidays for one another, so we ask you to remember that the greatest gifts in life are given when you share your heart and soul, your gifts and talents, and the true treasure within your spirit with one another. In these connections, God is found and rediscovered once again in human hearts. These presents, the presents of your Presence, are eternal.

God bless you, your commitment to being the loving souls that you are on this earth is a gift and blessing to us.
