  1. Wholehearted YES!! When I think about those who have affected me most over my lifetime, there’s one common thread – they showed me the
    grace, compassion, kindness, love, understanding, and peace of Jesus. Those qualities result only from closeness to Jesus. Lord, may we draw close to You. And may we stay there. Thanks, Robin!

    • It’s lovely to think about what it is about special gifts that make them special <3. I long for my gifts to be significant because of what they convey...a common bond in Christ is beautiful.

  2. Beautiful!
    Thank you Robin – a very timely, significantly important message & one to be cherished.
    Blessings & Merry Christmas.

  3. Dear Dawn,

    Sooo beautifully written! You commented on the very personalized gifts we make or buy but, the gift of Jesus is the best. Wow! We often don’t think of giving others the wonderful news of Jesus, or even reminding them that He is the “star” of Christmas. Thank you.

    Meryy Christmas, Sandy

  5. Hi Dawn,

    My apologies for the duplication. Not sure how the first comment was sent with it’s mistakes. Computers!!??

  6. I loved this more so because it’s a perfect translation of what has been on my heart lately. I too love John 3:16. I like to call myself a whosoever. There are no caveats to that scripture, no race bias, no gender bias, no monetary bias, no age bias, no weight or height requirements to meet. There is no background check to make sure we are safe to be around. God is the ultimate decision maker and he says that He so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
    I pray we would all join the ‘whosoever’ club and invite others to join as well.

  7. Thank you, Robin for this beautifully written reminder of the perfect Gift and how important our relationship to Him is.

  8. Robin,

    Thoughtful hand made gifts are the best. Anyone can go out & get “something” for someone. But taking the time to really think about the person & what he/she would need or enjoy speaks love. One simple way I do that is to cook for people. Love to make delicious dishes that they can enjoy without having to cook or clean. It is my way of letting God’s light shine through me.

    I have a co-worker who has had two really bad years. First she got Covid & pneumonia, then her dad was diagnosed with kidney cancer. Lastly her brother got Covid & pneumonia while dad was back in hospital. The brother ended up dying. In the midst of that she has to work 12 hr. shifts as RN. I took some homemade mac & cheese & chicken & dumplings for her lunch. Lastly I gathered some cookies & more mac & cheese. My & God’s way of saying we see & care for you.

    Blessings 🙂
