We were a young family, very poor, alone in a large, strange city. The prospect of a present under the tree for our two children was bleak. This was our first experience of a Christmas miracle.
Special Gifts Delivered by the True Gift
When we were young in our marriage …barely starting out in life;
I really didn’t know about the True Gift – Jesus Christ.
But now, when I look back I can clearly see,
That even back then, He delivered special gifts to me.
On one special occasion when our princess was tiny and baby boy only months old,
We were delivered a Christmas gift, that even now, is a precious memory we hold.
We lived alone in a large city; in an apartment on a second floor.
On Christmas Eve we still didn’t have presents for the little ones we adored.
It was heart-breaking, but there was no money at all left.
We reluctantly gave up, and resigned ourselves to it.
Then to our surprise we looked into our mailbox; and what did we see?
A small refund check …..How could this be?
We rejoiced even though we knew there had been a mistake made.
But now I know the “True Christmas Gift” who delivered us that special gift that day
Our hearts were opened, to see and to understand,
The one born to die for us; all good things come from His hands
Now my children and their children have Christmas memories too.
I am so thankful we all have hearts delivered by Jesus the one gift true.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from
the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
