by Johnny Hart
RIP 1931-2007

Just 'getting to give'
At gift-giving time
Is the gift
That givers give.
'Cause they know
That the love
That they love
To give gifts with
Is also a gift from above.

From a BC Comic strip circa 1993


  1. Speaking of gifts, thanks for the one that arrived in my mailbox :-)

    I will miss reading fresh Johnny Hart comics.

  2. Oh, I love this little verse! Giving is my spiritual gift and I love how he put into words the thrill of giving in Jesus' name.

    I also appreciated Johnny Hart's pro-life stand. One strip featured the little caveman guy looking up "RU-486" in his dictionary. The definition was: "Are you for stiffing the kid?"
