I Got A Tiara!!!

Hi, all!

It all started with this card.  This pretty card came to me from a person I never expected to receive a Christmas card from (someone who shall remain nameless, because otherwise it feels a little like stalking!)  But this person is fairly famous, and I certainly never thought she'd think to send me a very personal Christmas card.  I was over the moon!!  I texted my husband and daughter with a picture of the card, and my daughter (always a joker) texted back, "Well, aren't you fancy!"  But my husband's text back to me was the one that got me thinking…


Now, if you're a fan of the show Big Bang Theory, you probably know what that tiara reference means.  But just in case you don't, watch this little video…




When my husband mentioned it, I realized that this was exactly how I felt.  And I realized that I felt like that because this was from an important person, and I felt like I wasn't important or worthy enough to receive something special from her.   Which made me think.

A very important person (God) thought enough of us (very unimportant compared to God) to send us 
a very special Christmas gift..

  
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish 
but have everlasting life."  John 3:16, NKJV

My very special Christmas wish for each and every one of you is that you realize that you've been given a tiara, too!  May the joy of the season fill your heart and inspire your year to come!!

Merry Christmas!!

  5. I remember that "tiara" moment when I got a very special quilt in the mail. Maybe not as special as the Son of God, but a gift of thoughtfulness and care, all the same.
    Merry Christmas, Sarah. You deserve the best.
    Hugs

  14. Sarah loved where you went with the Tiara story being the true Christmas story. I do have to admit though that I knew exactly what the Tiara referenced. That episode was on one night this week. Love it over and over and over again. Merry Christmas

  17. Sarah...your posts never cease to warm my heart! All of the many wonderful things that you do for others...I can't believe that YOU would think yourself not already wearing a special tiara...one shaped like a halo. (I feel honored to know *you*) =D

    What a wonderful post to give these words to us to remind us of a gift more special than all others!

    love and hugZ,
