Birthday Gifts ? In Non-Materialistic Ways





People of different walks of life have different opinion about giving of birthday gifts. Whatever their opinions will be, birthday gift creates happiness and joy in one's heart. It may sound like a shallow happiness but at least, it's original and priceless. Birthday gift may form in many ways. Mostly, in terms of giving of material things. But some people give their birthday gifts in different manner like a surprise event or any other things that are invisible to one's eye but felt by the heart. Birthday Gifts For A Little Sick GirlOne girl was suffering from Acute Respiratory Infections. Because of the financial constraints, her parents didn't able to continue her medication and they're just waiting for the donations of the luckier ones. Her situation was aired in the radio and televisions that touched the hearts of the crowd. On her birthday, a lot of gift items were received by the family. The last gift that was sent is the certificate that the young girl could able to continue her medication-all paid by the unknown donor. For her family, these birthday gifts are blessings from above. God used the donors to extend his mercy for the girl. Birthday Gifts For A Prodigal SonIf you are reading the Bible, you might nearly be familiar with the parable of the prodigal son. It is the story of a rich man who had granted the wish of his son- to be independent. But, as he went to far away place, he spent all of his inheritance and later became a slave. He decided to go back to his father for the forgiveness and of course he was still accepted as a son. For this prodigal son, his father's forgiveness and acceptance are one of the greatest birthday gifts. I'm not referring to the literal birthday but a more abstract one. It was considered that it was his new birthday when he decided to go back to their place. He was lost but now he's found.Birthday Gifts for an OrphanWe could say that orphans are the unprivileged ones. They are deprived from the right to have a family who will love and care for them. They may, but not often received birthday gift on their special day. But you know what? The most priceless gift that they are longing for is a family. We could never feel their feelings but somehow their eyes are extending the message of sadness. Birthday Gifts for a PrisonerThey may be judged as wicked and sinful but they are still human that with heartaches and craving for something. I'm sure, during their birthdays, prisoners are longing to be free. Yes, they are longing for their freedom that was deprived from them for the consequences of the crimes they had committed. They are suffering in their birthdays and the only way to paste the true smile in their face is the special birthday gift – the gift of freedom.Birthday Gifts for GrandparentsClaire is an eighty-year old lady. She knows that one of these days, she will be gone for good. For her, every birthday is a gift. She believe also that in every year that was added to her life was also a lost from her total years of existence. Well, that is life, all of us will end.
