Wrapped with Love ❤


On Christmas Day

God sent us

a gift swaddled with Love



Wrapped with Love


What’s this new present under the tree?

It wasn’t there on Christmas Eve

And what’s inside doesn’t matter to me

It’s about the love of our family


So many prayers have been said

each night as I laid upon my bed

and each need of grace now in my head

inspires my words now written instead


Only a parent could understand

the love for a child now a man

and how this bond continues its plan

until time’s final grain of sand

Your gift reminds me

of the One God gave

wrapped with love on Christmas Day.


Our treasured gifts have been the time we’ve spent with our teenagers.

We were so proud of them as they sat in front of us at The Hobbit movie.

They were more considerate and quiet than a myriad of adults

whose mobile devices were interrupting the show

with flashes, ring-a-lings, and other silliness.


We were so proud of our teenagers when they were willing to go for a walk

with us on Christmas Eve to view

our neighborhood lights that are the talk of the town.


 We were touched when all of them sat and watched

It’s a Wonderful Life

with us,

instead of chatting with their online friends.


They reminded us of what God cares about.

A personal relationship.

  1. My wife and I are so thankful that, even though separated from us and each other by lots of miles, except for the one who does live locally, our children – in their 30s and 40s – are still “family.” What a blessing! Thanks for this great post!
