Just Give!!

 There are these precious people in my life that are such givers!! In the worlds eyes- they truely look as though they have nothing- a home to call their retirement but not a very big bank account or savings account . Not a house on the shore of Mexico- as many may dream. But these people- they have the most amazing inheritance and only a little of it is on this earth.  
  My grandpa Jack and grandma Norma have legacy of giving everything to the  lord. Their lives, their money, their home, and even their cars! My grandpa was headed to bible college with nothing in his pockets- he knew The Lord would provide - he told he non- believing father this. His father told him- your god won't provide- and he threw money at him as my grandpa was headed out the door. He looked at his dad and said "He just did!" 
  Through my whole life- my grandparents have sent us gifts, money, letters, etc. They have nothing people!!! And yet,  they give. They are in their 80's , retired from "full time" ministry but yet still are full time ! Giving time and money as they can. 
  A few days ago, I went to my mail box and pulled out a Christmas card  from them . It had money inside for our family. Always giving- always loving. What an example .  It humbled me really. May I not hold so tightly to my wallet, to my time , and to my things.
  It feels so much better to give than receive. Thank you for this legacy Jack and Norma. May we carry this on! 


Romans 12:8

…Or he who exhorts, in his exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.
