I’ve previously mentioned gift giving and wanted to show you a few more of my favorite gift items this Christmas. I don’t want you to think that everybody on my list is getting poop soap. If you’re new to the domestic fringe, click HERE to read about poop soap…the gift that keeps on giving.
Anyway, my kids want presents too and the only use they have for soap is painting the shower walls with it. I have more soap scum than my can of scrubbing bubbles can even begin to chip away at.
I think I’m slightly ADD. See how quickly my attention shifts from gifts to scum? It’s a full-time job keeping this mind on target. That’s part of my problem. My mind’s in Target too much and its got my checkbook captive.
These may not look like much, but they’re actually pretty unusual. These crayons were made in Peru and the waxy colored part is actually inside a piece of wood. They are literal crayon sticks. My son is going to love these and they fit perfectly in his stocking. They may cost me a trip to the emergency room when he slices his finger open with a pocket knife as he’s try to whittle a point, but hey, what’s childhood without a few ER visits.
The finger puppets are for Annaliese. They are hand made and are also from Peru. That’s why Bugs, Minni, and Santa look slightly off. I think it’s part of their charm. Believe it or not, my daughter asked for finger puppets. I’m not sure it’s on the list of most popular presents for 2008, but she lives in the land of make-believe and will be very happy with these Peruvian wonders.
The gifts I give are merely a slight reflection of the presents the Lord’s given me. The greatest being the gift of His son, Jesus Christ. He stands as the bridge between my sin and reconciliation with God. He was born, the spotless lamb of God, in a humble manger and grew to give His sinless life on a cross in payment for the sin debt I owed. The good news is that the gift is not just for me, but is offered to all who come by faith.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
