Norman Vincent Peale's stories made points.
In one, a young Swedish girl lived with and helped an American family.
She had little money for Christmas gifts.
And the Americans already had so much.
Then came a divine inspiration.
She bought baby clothes with her money.
She sought the poorest baby she could find.
A Salvation Army bell-ringer helped her.
On Christmas morning, she told the family about the gift.
She revealed that she had done it in their name.
Everyone felt blessed by the spirit of the gift.
The family felt blessed for seeing her in a new light.
The poor family felt blessed by her unexpected gift.
Giving and receiving are both blessings.
But the love behind the gift is the best gift of all.
Think about that as you do your Christmas shopping.
