Giving more than money

Yesterday, I had a speaking assignment in western/central Indiana. I received such a warm welcome from those ladies! I felt like I had grown up with them. It was a small group and was so nice to be able to have more time to dialogue than when I speak to bigger groups.

Some days, I think I learn more from them than they do from me.

I was once again reminded the importance of:

Real caring and compassion
Creative gifts
Time spent

I think it is the practical side of me that sees giving in how much it costs financially. Giving is bigger than that. Sometimes what I am least likely to give is when it costs me emotionally.
