Everyday Gifts...


Everywhere, everyday, there are gifts.  Sometimes big, sometimes small...but they are always there.  Sometimes you receive a gift and sometimes you give a gift...and sometimes, giving IS the gift.

The gift of color ~

Reds...


and yellows...


With the passing of time, the jewel-like leaves will wither and fall to the ground ~

                                                        

only to reveal another gift ~


The structure and bones and life-giver to the leaves ~


Gifts of anticipation ~


Gifts of smell and taste.  Homemade goodness.  Cinnamon rolls my daughter made for my birthday ~


The gift of memories...of passing time ~


Small gifts ~


Spicy gifts ~


The gift of friendship ~



and common interests ~


The gift of creating ~


 The gift of giving ~



The gift of meeting new people ~


and making new friends ~


The gift of Art


There are gifts that warm the heart ~


and excite the eye ~



The gift of simple man-made light ~



and vibrant God given light ~


from Heaven above ~


The gift of Johnny Appleseed skies on a warm December eve ~



Gifts.  Big and small.  They are everywhere in our Everyday. 

Until Next Time:

I never thought about it but you have the luckiest friends ever! And it must be pretty handy for you too, being such a creative genius at this time of year and all that. Do you ever have to go Christmas shopping? Why would you I suppose, your art is much more wonderful than anything you'd buy in a store :) On another note, you've made me hungry. I can almost smell those cinnamon rolls, yum!

Gerushia's New World said...

Hahaha...Roisin, my friends might beg to differ! But thank you so much for the compliment! Actually, I am the lucky one!

Have a great Christmas:
