|“If you have much, give of your wealth; If you have little, give of your heart”|
My grandmother's china.
I was the recipient of some of my grandmother's china.
I didn't know my grandma, as she passed away
before I was born.
But, I am very familiar with her china.
My mother served many holiday meals
on these plates, in these bowls, upon these platters.
I feel warm and happy every time I look at these dishes.
She gave of her talents
Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
Little did my grandma know how
celebrated her china would be,
how my mother would make them a symbol of service.
The love and sacrifice
served upon these dishes
makes me think of the Savior,
and his gifts to us.
No thought of his own work,
served with love.
I am so grateful to have been raised
with this knowledge in my life.
A blessed Christmas to you all.
May you feel the gifts of Christmas.

"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."
