The Gift “Un” Wrapping

She always took her time. Each movement seemed carefully calculated to make the process last as long as possible. Each piece of tape was removed as if it had never been off the roll. And don’t even mention the paper!

That was my sweet grandmother. I remember each and every time she got a gift we would lose our patience. Since we unwrapped each gift one at a time if it were Christmas, we could not believe how long the process would take. Now her birthdays and Mother’s Days were a bit more tolerable. But come on!

I had a dream the other night and saw her do it all over again.  She has been gone for over 30 years…but I know the Father was showing me something by allowing me to have this memory.

Un-wrap each day as the gift it is.

Treasure each and every moment. Savor and save each special occasion, but especially the ordinary. Don’t worry about tomorrow. Love those you are with at any given moment.

Each day is a gift that we can be thankful for……

I think my Grandmother had it right.

Cherish the day you have been given; the good, the bad and even the ugly.

Now go and Un-wrap with vigor. Save that beautiful paper and uh, don’t forget the importance of that transparent tape.

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 56 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 40 years, married 37 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. We have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. It wasn't always easy, and I like sharing some insights from those "mommy" and "teaching" years. I also want to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, He is ever present. ~Be Encouraged Today~
