God's strength for your many roles

Saturday, November 30, 2013

The holiday season is stressful for those who feel they can't provide for their family, friends etc because they lack the wisdom or funds to buy the right gifts. But God gave everyone, even the least, the power to share the most powerful gift of all: the power of love, strength, wisdom, courage, friendship, self discipline, and the ability to focus on things that are purposeful in life. The most important of God's blessings are not conveyed by the spending of money but by being a mentor and an example to others. Small gifts make a big difference if they are given with love. So live a life as an example of one who has not given up on life, but has the courage and positive attitude to persevere in the mist of difficulty. My wife has been such an example to me and is one of the most giving individuals that I know. OlderOwl

    Thanks I need that reminder ! I know for myself I would prefer gifts of time and friendship rather than a box of chocolates for instance. Have a good month, Irene
