While meditating with Jesus this morning, I learned a few truths from Creation.    We are entering Christmas next week and it will be a day of giving-- hopefully with sincere intentions.

The Lord showed me this morning how all Nature points to God's generous personality. and how we can also follow Nature's example and give more of ourselves back to Creation as well as to each other.     Consider the dandilions.  They give their leaves to the rabbits and humans for nutrition. They give of the beauty of thier bright yellow flowers to brighten a person's day - as the color yellow is a great mood uplifting color.  They give of thier pollen for all pollinating insects- including honey bees- which then creates a ripple effect of giving- since then animals and humans can also enjoy the honey made from the bees. They also allow  thier seeds to be freely taken by the wind currents so new dandilions can continue on the legacy of sharing. Dandilion roots also have great medicinal benefits -as the roots help cleanse and detox an overburdened liver.

 One doesnt have to look far to see many more fine examples in Nature of God's generousity expressed in even the most humble of His creations.

   Jesus told His disciples it is far more blessed to give than it is to receive. and how right He is-   Ever notice how joyful you feel when you give someone a present that you really want them to have- and know that they would never consider purchasing it for themselves because of the cost?   Their joy in receiving this gift gives us joy in seeing thier reaction.  This is how God feels when we acknowledge gifts He gives us--    especially His greatest Gift of all to mankind- His Son Jesus- which cost Him a great deal more than we can ever know on this side of the Veil.   When  a child of the Earth acknowledges His Son as that Precious Gift, our Father - the Creator of All that Is, has that same Joy- because we would not have been able to afford Salvation on our own- so our Father, His Son , and the Holy Spirit, arranged for us to have that Gift- through Jesus.
