Advent – Day 20
Bless is a word that we just use as a matter of course and habit. We “say the blessing” at mealtime. We tell people “bless you” when they sneeze. We ask God’s blessings on people in times of trouble and in times of happiness. But we often forget that we too can be a source of blessing to others and that can bless us in return. I sometimes think that is why I like buying gifts for others at the holidays (and any time really). Those small tokens of giving that make others happy make me happy as well.
