Thank You for Giving



"A person who is tight with their money is also stingy with their love." Zsa Zsa Gabor

This is what it has come to -- I'm quoting Zsa Zsa.
Years ago I had a Quote of the Day calendar and this one has stuck by me.
It's true even if the person who said it regularly wears emu wraps.
She who doesn't tip at least 15% in a restaurant or hesitates while the bill is being split up is not likely to be the one who will drop their life and come running when your life is in peril.
I love nice clean little insights into life. They save time and feelings.
Generosity is a good litmus test for "Who Ya Gonna Call?"
It has nothing to do with bank accounts and 401Ks.
It is a heart issue.
When my sister wrote an article for the newspaper at Christmas about a family that was likely to not have presents under the tree for the children, envelopes with $5.00 bills came from the rich neighborhoods but the simple dollar store envelopes from the blue collar neighborhoods had the $100.00 money orders or cash bills.
Jesus talked more about our relationship with money than our realtionships with each other.  I don't think He needed the cold hard -- I just think He knew exactly what Zsa Zsa was talkin' about.

  2. Good post. I saw the post about your grandson too. I have 2 grandsons and just love being a grandmother, although it was hard getting used to the empty house after both of my kids were married.
