Celebrating By Giving

"Even after all this time, The sun never says to the earth, "You owe me." Look what happens with A love like that. It lights the whole sky." -- Hafiz of Persia

Idea of the Week

"Two years ago, on the day before Easter, I gave my three children money instead of Easter baskets. Later that evening, we were all sat watching television, when an infomercial came on about starving children. I couldn't help tearing up when my children said, "Mom, can we give our Easter money to these children?" I said "yes" and told them that God was going to bless them for this. I wrote a check and sent it off in the mail. I wanted to go get them Easter baskets for their kind act, but I didn't have any more money. To my surprise, on Easter morning, a couple of ladies from a church we used to attend came over with a big box. I didn't open it until they left, and when I did, tears started streaming down my and I fell to the floor with gratitude. It contained Easter baskets for my children and a gas card for my family. The universe sometimes knocks you on your knees in tears from the way it works..."
