This month, gifts and gift-giving can seem inescapable. What’s the most memorable gift, tangible or emotional, you received this year?


I got a visit from dear friends when I needed it most this summer. I was home all alone on a week I really shouldn’t have been alone. The Lord used Amanda and Bethany to keep my mind off of all the stress and heartache while Leon was away at the end of June. What a blessing these girls were!


It was a gift because the love these two girls showed and the fellowship we shared brightened up the week. They helped bring stability to a week that would have otherwise been unbearable. What a gift!

This isn’t the photo I was looking for, but this is Bethany and I :)
