One day a father got very upset when he saw his four-year old daughter wasting a roll of expensive wrapping paper.
Money was tight that Christmas and he became angry when the child tried to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree and she was wasting costly wrapping paper.
Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift that she had wrapped and gave it to her father on Christmas morning. “This is for you, Daddy,” she said. The father was embarrassed by his behavior the day before.
But when he opened the box, he found that it was empty. He really blew his cork! He yelled at her: “Don’t you know that when you give someone a present, there’s supposed to be something inside of it?”
His little girl looked at him with tears in her eyes. “Oh, Daddy, it’s not empty. I blew kisses in the box all day for you. I filled it with all my love, all my love for you, Daddy!”
The father was crushed. He put his arms around her and begged her forgiveness. For years the man kept that special box by his bed. Whenever he was down or depressed, he would take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love of the child who put it in there for him.
The little four-year old girl had already figured out: That the best things in life are unseen. That’s why we close our eyes when we kiss and when we dream.
Who in YOUR life has given YOU a present like the little girl gave to her father?
GOD IS SO GENEROUS THAT GOD GIVES US GRACE WE DO NOT DESERVE, LOVE WE CANNOT COMPREHEND AND MERCY THAT WE CANNOT RESIST!
