Tweet Mammamoiselle asked her readers to "blog about something charitable that you do during the holiday season." After completing the 30 day giving challenge this request hit a cord within me. Why is it people only expect us to be charitable during the holidays? Kind of a sad state of affairs really. The only time we are "expected" to "do the right thing."
I am so grateful for this challenge and for the fact that it has solidified my hunch that my spiritual gift is giving. I adored almost every moment of this challenge. There were a few times when my will was against that of the Lord but I relented. Sweet surrender proved to have a bounty of gifts for me.
So in response to Mammamoiselle I say this. I plan on continuing to live generously. I plan on giving to the poor, providing comfort whenever I see a need, using the resources my Lord has blessed me with to bless others, and live a life that will glorify my Lord. Not only will I do these things through the 25th of December I will carry on and use my spiritual gift for the rest of the days that the Lord gives me in this place. Amen.
