Hi friend! My name is Jessica, I am a family and portrait photographer based in Washington Dc. I am a Christian, wife, and identical twin. I love lilacs, candles, rainy days and honesty. I love finding joy in simple things.
I’m sure you each can think of that gift. The one gift that special thought went into and came at just the right time?
When I think of giving, most times it involves money in some way. This past month I have been thinking a lot about the different ways we can give and after this morning I decided to jot down a few of my thoughts and share with you.
I was sitting in the back pew at church when I heard my name whispered behind me. Then my friend slid her little pink bundle into my lap. It was a silent but powerful gesture. The next ten minutes I fought back tears as I swaddled her tight. You see, my friend knows I dream of our future family. The gift of snuggling her little girl for an hour during the sermon meant more to me than a thousand words. I so often underestimate the power of a timely gift.
Here is a list of my favorite (money-free) gifts:
*a listening ear
*an encouraging note
*prayers from a friend
*a homemade meal
*a welcoming spare room
*a friendly home
“A simple gift can soften hearts and change lives.”
