I am thankful for
Genuine generosity comes from the heart not by obligation, mandate or by taxes.
There have been many times in my adult life that genuine generosity has been shown to me but never had I seen it like I did during the flooding of the Mouse River when it swept through our home the Summer of 2011.
Genuine generosity looks like a pastor and his family helping you load the clothes washer and dryer out of your basement and into his pickup truck to take to someones home for safe keeping before the flood. (it wasn't our pastor and we did not know the person willing to store our belonging for as long as we needed at no charge).
Genuine generosity looks like a group of teens helping to "muck out" your home that had a muddy river run through it for a months time.
Genuine generosity looks like a church family handing you a check big enough to help you get by and through a disaster.
I could, and should go on but that was just ONE instance of genuine generosity I personally have experienced. I could write a chapter in a book at how inept the government administration was in 2011 but instead I will just vote for the party that was not in power at the time for the rest of my life.
Being Christian/Southern Gospel music is the genre I listen to I'm exposed to generosity every day and all the time. Currently our station is in a food/gift drive for those who need a little help during the holidays. For more about this worthy cause go to KHRT.com and get the details.
I find it easy to be generous because He who has provided me with all that has ever be created gave his own Sons life for mine that I not perish for all eternity.
Thank you Debbie Reynolds for this Thanksgiving Challenge.
