It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 11, Page 30, Book 12
Look around right now; See all that you possess, All that is yours. Now remind yourself That it all belongs to God; It is in your hands For just a moment.
Live your life today Grateful For the abundance Of grace that is yours To give away.
# 30 of 30 things I'm thankful for in November
Being generous to others really does give one a good feeling. Sharing what I have with others is a part of who I am.
I love to give gifts and with the size of my family, there are plenty of reasons to give them. Birthdays, anniversaries, new babies, and Christmas are just a few. Besides that I give a lot of my time. Time to see them, time to babysit for them, time to pray for them, and time to rejoice with them.
I think that if you have more, even more than just one person, then you should help. If you can, you should make efforts to improve the lives of others.Giving doesn't stop with my family either. I give to my church and to the poor. What we have much of is meant to be shared with others.
Some of the best advice I ever received was to: Drink deeply from good books, especially the Bible. Make each day your masterpiece. Pray for guidance, and give thanks for your blessings every day.
Today ends my 30 days of THANKFULNESS. Coming in December, I'll be preparing for Christmas and for me there is no better way to do that than to celebrate the Advent Season. It's a season of HOPE, JOY, LOVE, and PEACE.
You learn about gratitude by giving. You learn about humility by receiving, and in the pecking order of human qualities, I'd probably put humility somewhere before gratitude.
