Joy of Giving

Day 46 – #HappyDay Challenge

How do you feel when you give freely?

Giving from the heart opens me to experience unmeasurable happiness. Have you ever experienced this joy in giving?

I began reading “Tattoos on the Heart” by Gregory Boyle, after hearing him speak on NPR. I admire him, a Jesuit priest, giving all he has to help the young people escape gang violence in L.A. What his book shows is all the good God can do in the face of poverty and days of uncertainty. How God can take the smallest kindness and magnify it into unrecognizable proportions.

Reading this book makes me want to give more. It makes me want to do more. Be more. My prayer today is that God blesses us all and uses our small gifts to help others in magnificent ways that’s only known to Him.

Love, April
