G is for...

G is for giving... Such as giving thanks for what we have and the blessings we have received.  The next time you pass someone on the roadside with one of those little cardboard signs saying "please help"... Please consider doing so.

I know it might just be a scam... Or they might use your money to buy drugs or alcohol... So what?  The blessing is not so much in the receiving, but in the GIVING...

Each time I stop and give a few dollars to one of these poor souls, I am reminded that "there but for the grace of God, go I".   So, when I see them, I give... Because no matter what they use the money for, their need is so obviously greater than mine.

Wishing you all a blessed Thanksgiving surrounded by all that love you... Giving thanks for you my dear friends... down here in French Lique...

Dixie, thank you for giving me a new perspective on the guys asking for money or food. I usually just figure they're scam artists and drive past them but you are right, the joy and blessing IS in the giving. Thank you for reminding me of that. Happy Thanksgiving and thank you for your comment on my blog. I'll be at Trade Days in Fredericksburg in case you feel like driving up there along with Theresa Cano.

Agreeing with Betsy above, it's too easy to filter out those on the roadside or sidewalk asking for help. You're right, perhaps God doesn't ask us to be the judge of what they'll do with the money we give, all he asks is that we give when we can. Thank you.

A blessed Thanksgiving to you, Dixie,
Dewena
