Featured Post from last week!
"A Generous Heart"

This was shared by Ro over at Tuning My Heart...So I Can Tell a Better Story. Thanks so much Ro for joining the link-up and for your super encouraging words!  I hope you might feel free to grab my button from the side-bar that reads, "I Was Featured On From My Mountain View," to post to your blog or this week's Moms Against Manic Monday post!  :)
Here is an excerpt of what Ro shared:

I hear His voice of love…
Whisper to me…"live with a generous heart."
What comes to mind first?  Money.
In many ways, money may be the easiest of all ways to live generously…
Giving money can be done without really cutting too deep into our lives.

God is digging deeper…
Right into the heart of the matter…
A true giver lives generously with their whole selves
 Giving not just our money……but our time… our hearts...our all.
Living a generous life...can be a hidden life...
a bounty that flows from the unseen...
a quiet choosing in our thoughts...
a silent honoring of others … 
choosing to believe the best…
charitably forgiving those around us…
pouring out mercy and grace.

A person with generosity in their heart ...  
Is unselfish with their time…
Giving of ourselves when it is not convenient.
 But joyfully serving our husband …children…parents…
And those that come across our paths…

God wants to work generosity from the inside out…
Asking us to be faithful in small ways…
So when it is time to give… to really give in a big way…
In a way that costs us...
Whether with time, forgiveness or money…
We will do so cheerfully and extravagantly …
Because this is how He gives to us.


PLEASE head on over to Tuning My Heart... to enjoy the article in its entirety and read her continued list of gratitude and joy dares.  :)





 
 
Give thanks to the Lord!  His love endures forever!
