In O Henry’s story, the lovers each wanted to give a very precious present to the other.
She cut her long, gorgeous hair and sold it to a wigmaker, so she could buy a present for her husband. And he had found a beautiful hair clip for her beautiful hair.
In spite of all – they had indeed given each other the greatest gift – true love.
This beautiful season, give love. The greatest gift you can give.
Not Yet, Just Wait
“In the most dire situation, in the best situation, if you just wait, the good in it will reveal itself.”
~ Rush Limbaugh, Dec 23, 2020
Isn’t it a TOUGH thing, to WAIT?
-to wait on others?
-to wait on yourself as you learn and grow?
-to wait on your children to become?
-to wait on ‘things to happen’?
-to wait to ‘find out’?
So, plan, pray and act toward the result you want.
Set your goals, plan, pray and act.
“One little spark
One flight of fancy
Shines up the dark
So that we can see
When things look grim
And nothing's going right
One little spark
Clicks on the light,
"One bright idea
One right connection
Can give our lives
A new direction
So many times we're stumbling in the dark
And then, Eureka! - that little spark!”
-Disney’s Figment, again.
(And, me again.)
