When I was small, I had a favorite book entitled, Sweet Surprises. In it, a little girl set out one morning to accomplish 10 surprises for her family and friends without revealing her identity as the "giver". It taught me at an early age that there is SO much joy in giving....especially when the recipient has no clue who gave them the gift! I'm praying this week for some giving opportunities in which I can be anonymous. I don't want the glory for any part of this challenge. Instead, I want my Lord to be blessed and praised!! Giving anonymously is a great way to accomplish that!!
Here's a quick summary of Week 2 of the 30 Day Giving Challenge.....
Monday ~ Sent a card to my sister-in-law to encourage her
Tuesday ~ Organized my husband's office at church (it needed it!)
Wednesday ~ Gave a card/gift to a sweet friend of mine
Thursday ~ Sent a card to my military cousin for Veteran's Day
Friday ~ Spent a little extra time making a special meal for my guys!
Saturday ~ Donated some canned goods
Sunday ~ Brought a gift to a young mom at church
Have you been able to give in any way this week? I'd love to hear about it!!
