It’s Christmas! Have you been to the mall? The crowds, the craziness. It’s shopping mania.
Not all gifts can be bought. In fact, the best ones do not come in boxes with pretty paper and fancy bows. The best ones come right from the heart.
The Unfinished Gift is one of those gifts, a story that comes right from the heart, written to touch hearts and change lives. Every now and then we all need a reminder that Christ came at Christmas to reconcile the world. In his book, The Unfinished Gift, Dan Walsh teaches us that often reconciliation begins with our own world.
It was 1943 and the war raged on. In the blink of an eye an old man lost his son and a young boy lost his father. Blink, blink and a child’s life is turned upside down when he has no choice but to go and live with his grandfather, a sad and lonely old man. Typical Christmas stuff, right? Blink again.
While other kids were busy making Christmas lists and writing last-minute letters to Santa, Patrick Collins made a prayer list. His list included the army finding his father, who had been reported missing in action. Patrick didn’t want to live with his grandfather. He wanted to go home.
Ian Collins didn’t really want Patrick living with him either. His presence brought back too many memories. Feelings that made Ian uncomfortable at best.
When Patrick goes missing right before Christmas, Ian’s world is rocked. Suddenly nurturing old wounds and holding grudges seems unimportant, as the focus becomes finding Patrick.
The Unfinished Gift is an endearing story of a family desperately in need of forgiveness and grace. It’s a Christmas classic, meant to be read year after year, if only to remind us that we need to give the gift of forgiveness to all those we love and care about.
Will God answer Patrick’s prayers? Read The Unfinished Gift and discover the true meaning of Christmas.
