I love receiving simple gifts. You know what I mean by simple gifts, right? They are free for the giver, yet priceless to the receiver; they are easy to acquire for the giver, yet perfect to the receiver.
Simple gifts are often spontaneous and not well planned out in advance. That’s what makes them more special than the gifts that are purchased in a store and tied up with ribbons and bows. This week I received not one, but two simple gifts.
Simple Gift #1
I am not a morning person! This gift made my day! Simple, yet perfect….flowers from the yard and a cup of coffee, first thing in the morning, from my thoughtful Hubby.
Then Friday evening, Hubby’s parents came for “Pizza Night”. My Dad-In-Law brought me a special gift from a local park….
Simple Gift #2
Now I know, not everyone would like to receive a vile of pond scum! But for me, it couldn’t be more perfect. (We’re studying micro-organisms in Biology and it gave me the opportunity to pull out the microscope and see who’s in there. (I’ll never go barefoot in a pond again!) It was an enjoyable and memorable evening.
God gives us simple gifts everyday. Sometimes we don’t even notice, but if we look, we are often truly inspired and awe-struck.
Take time to notice!
Take time to give a simple gift!
I’d love to hear about your Simple Gifts….anything from a sunrise to a special drawing from a child.
