Before the 25th of December 2016, Georgia based American teenager Regan Lee was just another Twitter user sharing her personal thoughts and views on the micro blogging social networking site.
But a simple yet thoughtful gesture of love towards her boyfriend for Christmas has now changed that status. With over 54,000 retweets and 0ver 169k likes of a tweet she posted on Christmas day, Reagan has now become an internet sensation of some sorts.
In the said Tweet, Reagan wrote that she her Boyfriend wanted a Bible for Christmas. But instead of just a regular Bible, she decided to design and decorate every single page to make her gift more personal.
See photos below:
In doing this, the Amazing Teenage read every single page of the Bible, doodling some of the key points of each page along the edges for easier assimilation and reading. She also drew pictures to depict some of the points on some pages.
I personally think what Reagan did was sweet and very thoughtful. If nothing, chances are that her selfless gesture will make her boyfriend read the bible more because of the thoughtfulness that went into it. Over 160k Twitter users seem to agree with me but a lesser few, disagree and have strong words for Reagan.
While some think its disrespectful to God and the Bible and left it at that, others threatened her with death and declared that the hottest place in hell will be reserved for her.
The shocking negative reactions led Reagan to Tweet:
The biggest lesson here for me is that a Gift isn’t always about money, but the effort and thoughtfulness that went into it.
God bless Reagan. The effort she put in the gift in the fact that these two young people remember God in their relationship is commendable.
Let me know what you think. Feel free to disagree with me-OBJECTIVELY in the comment section.
