Christmas on a Spoon
Written by: Jennifer Whipple, Illustrated by: John Joriff

A delightful tale of a family, trying to hide their disappointment as they go through the rituals of Christmas day. Grandfather arrives and brightens the day. As he tells a story of a discarded silver spoon found in a trash heap, given as a gift. They are reminded that the reason for the season is Jesus, that Christmas is not about the gifts or even the grand feast but that Christmas means, what Christmas means, despite our silver spoons.

About the Author
Jennifer Whipple had always dreamed of being a wife, a mother and an author—now she is all three. Jennifer and her husband Rick live in a quaint bungalow off a dirt road near the village of Dexter, Michigan. When Jennifer isn’t writing, she can often be found playing outside with her two little girls or tending her beautiful flower garden. Jennifer has been blessed with a wonderful family, friends, neighbors and a Heavenly Father who loves her very much. While she still dreams of doing many things, she has come to realize that with God, all things are possible…

Excerpt:
There were presents galore but no gun ship or sled;
and my list did not ask for new sheets for my bed.

I looked at Mom in her pink terry robe
as Santa Claus earrings hung from her lobes.

“Did you get what you wanted?” she asked. “Do you like your new toys?
Are you impressed by the rocket that makes realistic noise?”

I knew my response and without a considerate thought I asked her, “Are these the only presents Santa Claus brought?”
