A big part of this season is the giving of gifts. This year our Christmas may look different with few in-person gatherings and fewer resources than normal. We may be rethinking our giving strategies.

To that point, here’s something to ponder from one of my favorite spiritual writers.

“What we give away multiplies…This is the way of God. The way we are called to live our lives. The little love we have, the little knowledge we have, the little advice, the little possessions… are given to us as gifts of God to be given away. The more we give them away, the more we discover how much there is to give away.” Henri Nouwen (“The Road to Daybreak”)

Never forget the most important gift we can give is the gift of LOVE

…and God multiplies it!

grace, peace & gift multiplication

    Wise advice, Virginia. This year and its events have caused many folk to rethink their giving and it’s well to be reminded that there’s one constant amongst all the uncertainties! 😌

      Amen, Jane! I hope that your Advent will be blessed with extra doses of LOVE and joy and peace…and GRACE to face all the craziness that’s on your side of the ocean, too! Blessings & blogging hugs – Virginia 🙂

    Sending you lots of love, Virginia — the virtual-hug type, of course!

      Lots of love back at ‘cha, Debbie (virtual hugs inclusive!) What a blessing to hear from Dallas this week. A lady in our neighborhood has a doggie that looks like him. Every time I see them out walking, I think of Dallas! BIG BIG hugs to you!
