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
Virginia : )
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 🙂
So true Virginia. Love is precious , especially during Covid times.
COVID has made us ponder Love in deeper ways – because we love, we have to stay away? It’s a weird sort of love that keeps us apart from loved ones, but that’s the craziness we’re facing these days. I hope you stay SAFE and well, GH. Big hugs!
Good share Virginia and you are right. It is true that love gives us the strength and courage to stay away. Garfield hugs back at you.
Thanks Virginia. Blessings!
Advent blessings to you, Cindy. I hope this season will be filled with extra doses of God’s love, peace, joy and GRACE to face whatever tomorrow brings. : )
Thank you. God bless you every day Virginia!
God’s blessings to you, too, Cindy! Here’s a virtual hug, too – ✨🤗✨
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!
