Generosity can come in many forms from smiling, giving food, giving of your time. It doesn’t have to be spending money and it can be. I’m inviting you to brainstorm with people all sorts of different ways to be generous. Once I saw an old man and woman sitting on a bench. They were struggling with doing up his jacket. I saw it was frustrating for them. I stopped and offered to help. I took his jacket got the zipper unstuck and helped him zip it up again. That was an act of generosity. They were so pleased and thanked me.
The Christmas Holidays are over now.
It would have been great if I could have downloaded the next podcasts before Christmas. Some Circumstances arose and that did not happen. This is the last podcast around the holidays. I believe this podcast will be worthwhile to listen to for any holiday or any time of year, so I will be downloading this one for your benefit this week. Better late than never. Valentines is the next big one maybe listen to the words of wisdom from this podcast Apply them to any holiday or an area of life that could make a difference to you and or others.
I’ve become the main home to have people over dinner. I have a fairly large two-bedroom ground-floor apartment. One way I express love is I have always encouraged my girls to invite their friends over at any time but particularly on holidays. My girls are now 26 and 33 years old. They do not live with me. They still are doing this. I love it. This Christmas eve we had a blast, eating, a few drinks, and playing hilarious games we laughed and had so much fun.
I want to address men here for a minute. Sometimes I don’t think some men realize the difference they can make with their children, particularly their adult children.. I spent a lot of time with my children as they were growing up, unfortunately, their dad did not. My youngest daughter is in her twenties and has a four-year-old daughter. I have watched her Blossom because her dad is in her life and spending time with her and my granddaughter. What is neat about this is we divorced when she was a teenager and he just sorta wrote her off. I kept encouraging him to keep in touch with her and to spend time, even take her out for lunch every few months. My former husband is always going to be part of my life because we have children together and our children no matter how old they are want their parents together on holidays and special occasions. They want everyone to get along to celebrate with family. I have encouraged my former husband to support me in creating an environment where we can kid around and poke fun at each other in a loving way, This allows the adult children to feel free to come to spend time, invite friends, etc
That wasn’t always true it took a lot of work to have that happen. I knew it was important for my children so I bit my tongue for the first couple of years after the divorce. My husband was not kind to me and it took a big act of generosity to focus on what was important for my children. Now I am at peace. We are all at peace.
What can you let go of around family gatherings so there is peace? This is an act of generosity. Let go let God. Look around you. Especially with families that have broken up. Can you forgive and have it work for your children’s sake?
What is it going to take for you? Where can you be generous? What can you forgive? Where can you forgive? Can you forgive other family members, neighbors, Can you look at the bigger picture and look at what would be best for everyone? Can you give up your righteousness? Don’t be so righteously good you are no earthly good. The question is, how can you be generous today and every day. There is no guarantee we will wake up tomorrow! Be generous NOW!
Go for it! I want on my gravestone she burned out instead of rusted out! What do you want them to say about you?
Ask yourself are your actions and speaking in alignment with what you are committed to? Look at what are the habitual patterns that have that commitment thwarted? Are you willing to take responsibility for when it doesn’t go the way you want or the way you expected and clean up your part? Are you willing to let go of Expectations of yourself and others? What are you not being truthful about to yourself and others?
Our thoughts can be like a junk drawer-we need to take inventory and get rid of what is not useful! (wendy b)
