This Gift Is My Heart

I remember getting garland to put on our Christmas tree, short tinsely strands
tied into ropes that sparkled and caught the light, and they came in only silver and gold, they made the tree such an elegant sight.

I'd start at the top of the tree with the strands, looping the rope in scallops all around, and I was amazed at how long a rope it took to loop it all the way down to the ground.

Now garland comes in a hundred different shapes, colors and sizes galore, and it made me think I'd go back to a simpler idea to decorate a tree for the one I adore.

I'd use ribbons instead of tinsely strands, and upon each ribbon I would write, words spelled out with the pen of love, and each one would glow like starlight.

Each one would drape down from the angel at the top, like streamers from heaven above, and they would proclaim for all to see, the words that express my love.

On ribbons of red I would write the word 'love' for that abounds in each moment with you, and next to them white ones inscribed with 'joy' that every day is so fresh and new.

There would be blue ribbons that say 'cherish' for that is how you make me feel, every day wrapped up in your love; silver ribbons would be next, spelling out grace and peace, gifts we share from our Father above.

When all the ribbons are strung on the tree, it will shimmer and glow with inner light, the ribbons streaming down the length of the tree, filling my heart with such joy at the sight.

The entire tree has now become a present, a gift that is ever new, and I bring you into the circle of its light, and with all my love, I give it to you.

I thank God each day that He's given me so many ways to tell you the depth of my love, for I can never give you back as much as I've received from you, for you are my gift from above.

The love that we share is a treasure beyond words, a gift wrapped up each day brand new, that we give each other, and we say the same words, 'this gift is my heart, for I love you.'


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
