I spent the day reading the newspaper, watching The Food Channel and surfing on the 'net.
I found a blog that is encouraging November Giving. (I would send you to that blog but I can't find it now). That really got me to thinking about Thanksgiving and giving thanks but am I missing the giving. Am I being intentional about purposeful giving? I mean giving over and about what we give to the church. Are there ways I can give that don't cost any money? I made a list.
Smiling and Greeting folks
Letting even two cars into the lane of traffic when I can
writing a 'good' letter for the bank teller that has given me wonderful service
holding the door for someone
calling to check on someone
dropping a note to someone
doing a chore around the house that I know someone really doesn't like doing (and not telling them I did it)
I am going to try to be more deliberate to follow my list and give more. I'd love to say forever but I better just work on this til the end of November.
What is on your list?
