Give the Gift of Love
My eyes still well up in tears every Christmas as I watch the end of the Christmas classic, "It's a Wonderful Life." George Bailey has just realized how precious life is, what a beautiful family he has, and then the bank president and local police come to arrest him. That's when the magic happens! George's friends, neighbors, and all the people he helped through the years come to his aid. Baskets of money are emptied on the table, people are taking coins out of their change purses, and an entire community rallies around to remind us what is possible when redemptive love is put into action.
