A friend of mine was talking about this book she read. A story of a woman who was ill with MS. She was distressed, sick and all that. One of her pastors told her about this tradition from Africa, 29 gifts. Please keep in mind that I am shortening this story by a lot. Here is the link if you want the entire story. http://www.29gifts.org/ You can check out the book at your local library. It was very inspiring.
All this came about for lent. When my friend was talking about this story, it was like God talking right to me. This is for you, Melissa. Really? Well, to tell the truth I am not surprised.
So for lent, I am doing the 29 days of giving....but stretching it to last 40 days. Not everyday, but close.
The first day, I wrote a note to my Daughter's teacher. Just a note, nothing special. Well, it was to her. I had no idea of the impact that little note had for her. how cool.
The second day, I gave a dress that no longer fit Gigi to a friend. Knowing that she will love the dress as much as we did, makes me happy.
Today, I am going to get all the morning stuff done, so my husband can sleep in. He thinks I take advantage of him.
So this is what I have been up too.
Thanks for reading.
