Christmas, isn't Christmas...

...till it happens, in your heart.
Somewhere, deep inside you,
is where Christmas really starts...
~~~

As I go about my Christmas elf duties,

I do get caught up wondering if I bought or made the right presents,
and if I left anyone out.

I do find myself wondering if my gift-wrapping is pretty enough.
Or if I forgot to remove any of the price-tags
[I unfortunately did for one of the batches of presents :( ]

I spend time and effort to get everything just right.

This past weekend, amidst the busyness
I've also remembered to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas.

~~~
...so give your heart to Jesus
You'll discover when you do,
That Christmas, is really Christmas,
for you...

Wow! I wish one of those prettily-wrapped pressies was meant for me! LOL ...kidding!
;-D

Your friends will be touched when they receive them. It's obvious lots of thoughts and effort have been put into them.

The LORD bless you for your generosity. :)

You're such a sweet gal! I'm sure your loved ones will greatly appreciate your thoughts and efforts, price tag there or not!

Blessed Christmas to you. Glad to 'meet' you via our blogs! :)

Blessed Christmas babe!

The spirit of Christmas is really the thought of the giving. And that's the best part of it so don't think too much about the rest. Your friends will be blessed by it. =)

nuttyjas: Wrapping pressies are half the fun for me! This year I 'cheated' though and used lots of paper bags. I spent time instead on making tags and tying flowers on :)

CDR: I'm sure you're receiving other pretty pressies =) Oh, I believe these are just little gifts to show my love and appreciation, but that we have all been given the greatest gift of all - God's love!

yuling: Me too, and a blessed Christmas to you as well :) I sure hope they feel loved!

moo: Yes indeed! Looks like I won't get to see you before Christmas :( Catch up with you when I'm back from KL.

celcilia: Oh I seriously wouldn't mind! ;) Happy Christmas to you too!

imp: Just some of the lot! heh. This year happened to be a bumper crop, partly coz we felt we wanted to give when we can, with the world being such an uncertain place now. I hope I helped spread some warmth :)

Blessed Christmas babe!

You've done such a great job on the present-wrapping. I'm such a delinquent in comparison. ;)

jacinta: Thanks Jacinta :) I certainly did!

lms: Blessed Christmas to you too, dear! Aiyah, you are working mother - you have other pressing priorities =) Am sure your gifts are just as thoughful!
