It’s not always delivered in an exquisitely wrapped box, topped with a perfectly tied bow is almost too pretty to untie. Sometimes, a gift is an answered prayer that renews our faith. Or the moment we pull up to the drive-thru window, open our wallet to pay, only to be told by the cashier that someone has paid for our meal. Gifts are powerful tools. When it feels like we’re carrying the weight of the world, a stranger appears with a door held open.
We are thankful for gifts, especially this year, when there have too many moments to count when burdens we shoulder are too heavy to bear.
