Sometimes someone gives you a gift so special, that you know you’ll never be able to top it by giving them something back. In March of this year, my mom gave me a ring for my fiftieth birthday that I remember her wearing most of my growing up years. It has her original engagement diamond in the setting next to a blue sapphire. This ring means a lot to me, as you can imagine. I doubt I can ever give her anything so special in response.
I’m glad to know God gave us His special gift - Jesus - and we can never give anything back to Him that is big enough or wonderful enough to compensate for the hugeness of His gift. Thank you, God.
And Mom, thank you for the reminder that special gifts can’t be earned. I accept it humbly and gratefully. And I enjoy it immensely. --Jan
