The best presents… is your presence.
Don’t think you can buy your children happiness, hardworking absentee father/mother. You may be “too busy” and think to compensate with a splurge of cash. Nothing replaces your presence.
God splurged on buying us the ultimate Christmas gift: His only Son. And He is only a prayer away to being in our hearts and gifting us His presence.
God gave us family. It is a reward, an institution, a blessing and a happiness. Sometimes it goes dysfunctional, but you don’t throw out the institution because of failure. You fix it.

Great post! Happy Holidays! 🙂
True enough, but a somewhat painful reminder for those for whom it is impossible.
Were your parents missionaries?
Yes. I was born in Japan in 1948.
