The Perfect Gift
30 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not sleeping at night has become a habit lately. 2 am this morning I woke and could not get back to sleep. I decided to get up, make the coffee and get ready to watch the news and get on my computer. But God...

I decided to turn on TBN and here was this movie. It has to be the best movie I have seen about Christmas. I was so moved and touched. I want to share it with everyone! I learned a lot too. The meanings behind so many of the things we tend to take for granted and very special meanings.

I love all of Jefferson Moore's and Kelly's Filmworks movies, but this was right on time.

And of course, God brought it to me in His time.

Thank you guys for a job well done. God Bless you and your family and

Merry Christmas!!
