Thoughts from Thursday's Child

Thursday's Child has far to go

Giving gifts from my heart

on October 11, 2014

We already know how to give to others.

Birthdays, Christmas, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, engagements, weddings – there are many occasions to celebrate and most of us love receiving gifts.

But what about giving to put a smile on someone’s face? LIft their spirit? Just be nice?

An opportunity to say “I’m thinking of you” ; “you are special” ; “you are loved”.

“But it’s not my birthday?!” “What a lovely thought!”

The saying goes ‘it’s the thought that counts” and it is, but the heart has something to say as well.

It can be as a simple as a selection of herbs from the garden or a plate of home baked goods.

Other times it might be a book or a hand crafted card.

The Bible reminds us God loves giving to us.

Matthew 7:11 New International Version (NIV) “If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!”

Hang on! Look, over there! That would be perfect for my friend! It”s just what she needs at the moment to cheer her up.

Make every day Valentine’s Day.

I will give with my heart.
