Friday morning between phone calls, I had the opportunity of speaking with my mother. It was an advisory call to be on the lookout for those Amazonian boxes that had various Christmas gifts in them and not to open them and whose was whose.

In the midst of our conversation, I inquired as to the weather up there in Frankfort, Kentucky. She said it was really cold and they were expecting snow. And of course, we had our usual tennis match about her moving here to Florida where right now the evenings are in the 50s, but the days are still in the mid to upper 70s. The score right now is Mom thirty — me ten.

Since mom has no computer—not because we can’t get her one but because she feels like computers, from a moral perspective, are pushing humanity right off Morality Mountain. And she feels the same way about cell phones. Therefore, she never has an opportunity to read any of my posts. And the word ‘snow’ reminded me of a post It’s The Little Things I’d written for Mother’s Day this year. I asked her if I could read it for her and she intently listened as I tried holding back the tears. When I finished she said, “This is the best Christmas gift anyone has ever given to me!” I could literally hear the joy in her voice. Her reaction caught me WAY off guard!

What’s the point? The point is you may be on a shoestring budget and can’t buy what you really want your mother to have or think she deserves this Christmas. But whatever you give her from your heart she will sincerely appreciate. It is not the quantity or price of the gift but the quality of the giver’s motive that is priceless.

May the Blessings of the LORD be with you today and always. Thank you for your continued readership and support. Until next week….Blessings and Peace!
