God’s Whispered Thoughts….

“God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks to us in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: It is his megaphone to rouse a deaf world.” C. S. Lewis

“Giving is behavior. Generosity is an orientation grounded in a value.  Generosity flows from spirit and passion… To be generous is to create something — to make something new happen.  Generosity gives life, offers hope, and creates energy and spirit.  It cannot help but lead to giving of one’s heart, mind, soul, and possessions.  There is within almost every heart a deep desire to make a difference, to do something significant, to create something good.  This is the spark we fan into flame when we help people live generously.” Dan R. Dick

Yesterday was a really good day.

 A simple day.

A worship service about living generously.

A movie and football on TV with my daughter.

Walking to the grocery.

Watching a brother and sister piling leaves and then jumping…

A visit by my son and Max, his dog.

My son, daughter, Max and me wandering the dog park.

A walk with my son, hearing about his life.

Giving him my old Rolling Stone mags.

Hugs from my children and…

A lick from a dog.

Good day…

“God whispered” day…

I serve a generous God…
