The best way to receive blessings

Orlando Motivational Speaker
In giving, one receives.

 

The best way to receive blessings is by giving, by being helpful, by being of service to others.

 

It’s natural to want to believe that giving depletes us.

Perhaps.

Giving also fills us.

It’s a wacky math, but one that adds up in wonderful ways.

Guard your generosity

“She’s a generous person. Just kidding”. See how weird that is. Doesn’t sound nearly as funny as this tee-shirt i saw two days ago.

 

Guard your generosity.

What a crime…

He was too generous.

May we all be guilty as charged.

If we give and expect, we lose.

It is better to give than to receive. And it is in the giving, that we also receive.

What Do You Want?

“Daddy, what do you want for Christmas?”, my son asked me yesterday morning.

“I’d like for all of us to enjoy the real reason for celebrating Christmas”, I replied without hesitating, and then paused, thinking, for a few moments.

“If we can do that, then any other gifts we might receive would just be a bonus”, I added as a followup.

“It would be great to simply enjoy the spirit of giving”, seemed to be my final answer.

And that about sums it up. Have you thought what you’d like for Christmas this year?

Odds are stacked against anyone actually adding any comments, but please know that you are indeed welcome to comment. You always have been.

PS. Comments aren’t why I write, and yet there is something colorful about comments that has the same effect as photos or video clips. A state change if you will.

And yet something a photo or video may never add – a sense of community. And isn’t that what Christmas is really about? Merry Christmas.
