Whose your Dad?

Over the holiday seasons we always give out gifts cards, so I gave a man one today and he said " Wow you must have a lot of money to do this?' And I said " Nope but my dad is rich", He said, "Really? " I said " Oh Yeah, he is limitless, he has a lot of everything, he's a doctor, he's a lawyer, he's even a banker, and he fixes broken hearts. He gives me everything that I ask for and sometimes even things that are better than I could ever imagine!" He said " Do you think he would help me, someone like me I have been unemployed for sometime, and my wife left me, maybe he can help me?' I said " I know that he will , I will ask him, but sometimes he wants you to ask for yourself." He said " when can I meet him." "Anytime", I told him, he's your dad too, his name is God and he loves you and makes all things possible for his children who believe."  Whose Your Daddy?

The Power of giving

Giving is powerful. Many people will attempt to prevent you from taking, yet no one can stop you from giving as much as you wish.
Give, and you increase the value that flows through your life. Give of yourself, and you make yourself stronger.
Every time you interact with someone else, you have the opportunity to give that person some kind of value. Whether it is a thing, or a thought, a gesture or a kind word, the most powerful gifts are those that come straight from the heart.
Many will appreciate your gifts and some will not, but that is not the point. For it is the sincere act of giving, not how the gift is received, that brings value and goodness to your world.
As you give more and more, you have more to give. As the joy of giving flows out from you, new richness fills your life.
Each moment is an opportunity to engage the beautiful, loving power of giving. Give your best and you’ll get even better.
