The Extra Special Gift

Posted on By Debra / Leave a Comment

I can’t tell you how excited I am about “The Extra Special Gift”  yes you know the one.  The one that oh me…can’t believe I got the extra special gift!!  The gift is for my husband, Jerry.  Probably the most difficult person to buy for. Now don’t get me wrong, he loves everything you get him, but it is hard to find that “special something” for him.  Well, this year is the year that he gets the BEST gift ever.  Many years ago his mom gave him an old falling part, rusty trunk.

We have had it for years and never done anything to it.  Last month I got the bright idea to have it redone for him.   It is beautiful…….and I can’t WAIT til Christmas to give him “The Extra Special Gift”.



After reading my devotions this morning I just have to share, I think you will understand once you start reading…

God’s Great Gifts

Thanks be to God for His gift, that is too wonderful for words 2 Cor 9:15

Why did he do it?  A shack would have sufficed, but he gave us a mansion.  Did He have to give the birds a song and the mountains a peak?  Was He required to put stripes on the zebra and the hump on the camel?….Why wrap creation in such splendor?  Why go to such trouble to give such gifts?

Why do you?  You do the same.  I’ve seen you searching for a gift.  I’ve seen you stalking the malls and walking the aisles.  I’m not talking about the obligatory gifts…I’m talking about that extra-special person and the extra-special gift……Why do you do it?….you do it so the heart will stop.  You do it so the jaw will drop.  You do it to hear those words of disbelief, “you did this for me?”

That’s why you do it.  And that is why God id it.  Next time a sunrise steals your breath or a meadow of flowers leaves you speechless, remain that way.  Say nothing and listen as heaven whispers, “do you like it?  I did it just for you.”
