The Three-fold Gift

The Importance of Giving BELIEF, SUPPORT, and ENCOURAGEMENT!!!!

Being honest with ourselves once again is no easy matter, but let’s go there: This time, I refer to giving three gifts instead of one. Would we not agree that three gifts can comprise the perfect package, with three is the perfect number? More so, people have stated repeatedly that three is the perfect number to signify the completion of something. Perhaps you’ve heard the well - noted expression, “The third time’s the charm”? There’s some truth to all this, friend…..

Unique Father's Day Gifts

Peddle to the meddle ---- it’ll be Father’s Day again in less than a year, and you know what that means!!!! Start planning NOW. It’s never a bad time to learn from the good, the bad, and the ugly of this last year’s turnout: Observe the reaction on Dad’s face as he opened his present, and decide whether you can “do better” next year. And, believe it or not, the next couple of months after Father’s Day are the PERFECT time to buy him your gift for NEXT YEAR as this is the time in which all Father’s Day sales items go into “reduced clearance mode” in nearly every physical store, and even online! Betcha didn’t think of that, did ya?

The LOVE LANGUAGES Behind Giving and Receiving....

I MOST recently stumbled across an insightful book that has changed my thought patterns like few others out there can, besides the Bible: It was Gary Chapman’s “The 5 Love Languages ©: The Secret to Love That Lasts.” In this book, Chapman identifies how most people feel, to identify, and ultimately relate to love. He broke into five main categories. He’d first assess that, if we identify our main love language and that of all other relationships we hold in this life, we may thus better communicate our love in a manner that the other person desires for ---- leading to a far more meaningful relationship in the end.

Your Undivided Time and Attention

How ‘bout an intangible gift, one that money can’t buy, this time around? How ‘bout something yet as equally precious as money, something so special it should never be wasted? Have you guessed what that might be yet? If you guessed time, then you are halfway correct, for the other precious gift to go along with it is attention. And these two can go hand-in-hand, like melted butter on a warm bagel after a long, foodless fast ----- descriptive, but you get the idea.
