I got the new Stephen King novel from my husband and kids, a tin of shortbread, movie tickets and a wine trail voucher from friends. I much prefer giving gifts than getting them, as I don't need anymore "stuff"
I received the most precious gifts of all - an album of photos, a shortbread star, a bowl covered in love-hearts and filled with licorice (my favourite treat) some candle-holders and a little garden in a pot - all hand-made by my grandchildren.
A Girlfriend put $500 in a Christmas card to help with my ministry.
Another gave me a $100 gift card for Woolies.
My next door neighbor insist's on giving me $200 gift card for Coles every year...(I do work on his place during the year).
His daughter gave me a expensive bottle of perfume.
My other girlfriend gave me a card, which paid for a ''Veggie Garden'' in a third world Country which I really loved!
My 1st son gave me $50, my second had my car serviced for me....my Daughter in law gave me $50 movie ticket, My grandkids gave me a glass trinket box...Another friend gave $100 for my ministry also.(which go's to help pay for keeping my car on the road with rego.)
I'm was very blessed indeed.
