Mom found me a couple of VHS movies that I remember fondly from my childhood. That does not make them vintage, no matter what the item description might say.

|Oh, goody. Here's my platter.|
|This looks familiar, too.|
She didn't mind a bit. When it comes to presents, she's always been a quantity over quality kinda gal. If you gave her a pack of licorice, she'd be happy. If you gave her the same pack, with each piece individually wrapped, she'd be thrilled!
Caleb got his own little surprise, too - the Bible he had forgotten at church only that morning.
|Wow. Thanks, Uncle Jack.|
|Jack and Damon helped...|
|...and so did Potto.|
|It's hard to believe how well his fur has grown back!|

Each year, I think we do a little better at capturing the true spirit of The Greatest Gift. This season isn't about selfish gratification, price tags, or credit card bills. It's about family togetherness and love. The bonds we form with family and friends give honor to the greatest gift of all, when God sent His Son to earth, to become ours now and forever.
Praying for God's peace to guide us as we enter the new year,
