Day 57, To See What We Can See: Gifts


Dear Friends,

What has been the best gift you’ve ever received?  You define “best” here; what I’m thinking of is “what made me the happiest”, or “what has had the most lasting positive impact”, or perhaps “what has been the most surprising or unusual”.    Not just this year, but at any time in your life.  And of course, it doesn’t need to be limited to just one gift.

Image or write about this.  Who was/is the giver of this fine gift?  What has become of the gift?

The first part of my last name, “charis”, is the Greek word for gift.  It also has the ideas of grace and blessings within it, and is the word used in theology for divine grace.  Free, unconditional giving of the divine’s own self.

Gifts, grace, blessings.

With love,


Day 57 of a series of daily prompts for written, visual, or art journalling, or just for pondering.  For more background information, see the Intro page, or this post on visual journalling:
