Happy August Everyone & thanks for spankin' new thread Amy... summer is just flying by...although I dont like the excessive heat & humidity, I truly dislike the extreme cold, wind & snow/ice.

Hope all here have a great Lord's Day. I will be conducting services at a retirement center & will include a memorial for one of the residents who died this past week

Been busy on the home-front, never ending deferred maintenance & pack rat issues. My back problems always complicate things. Dogs and mom are fine & I continue with my daily long outings with pups & movies & reading this summer keep me smilin'

Have a great Lord's Day

Good Sunday Morning


What a beautiful graphic and Psalm
Thank you, Dolly. My sympaties on back pain.
Been slowly working on long deferred cleanups.
Back pain can stop me cold from getting things done.
May The Lord bless your service at the retirement home. Have a beautiful Lord's Day

The Unknown Giver
August 1, 2010

I don’t know about you, but I tend to enjoy getting credit when I do stuff for others. And I don’t think I’m alone in appreciating thank you cards and words of gratitude.

I also know, however, that there’s something to be said for anonymity. This must be a good way to give, because Jesus endorsed it.

That’s why I was impressed with a gift that arrived anonymously on our front porch one day. We had been out of town; and when we returned, there stood several flower pots—each holding a blooming sunflower. We knew the reason—they were left on our doorstep on the birthday of our late daughter, Melissa, who loved sunflowers. Someone was telling us, “We remember Mell.” By giving anonymously, they focused completely on our family rather than on themselves.

Imagine a world in which we all gave generously and selflessly. Jesus mentioned secret giving in Matthew 6. He said, “When you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, that your charitable deed may be in secret” (vv.3-4).

Realistically, we can’t always give anonymously. But our giving should always be marked with the same spirit of selfless humility and God-directed charity.

Give as ’twas given to you in your need,
Love as the Master loved you;
Be to the helpless a helper indeed
Unto your mission be true. —Wilson

Self-sacrifice is the true measure of our giving.

Read: Matthew 6:1-4

When you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. —Matthew 6:3
Bible in a year:
Psalms 57-59; Romans 4
