Gifts and Happiness

 
To receive a gift
I delight
I embrace
I treasure it
I hold it tight and laugh with glee.

They say to receive the gift of happiness is to give.
I see God's happiness in the gifts received,
the delight in me.

In turn I give of the gifts
In the giving 
I delight
I laugh
I dance in God's delight
I am happy.

Beautiful words M. I have one of these plants, but I have to bring it inside for winter.

A gorgeous photo and perfect words. I really do believe you give each and every day of the year. This is just the season of wrapping it!
