Giving is real living.....

For the past nearly 9 years I had developed a new habit of passing along the US Presidential $1 coins to family and friends. (The US Mint issues 4 presidents per year for 10 years...but you must be a dead president to get your coin issued. Several are delighted to wait for theirs to be issued. We are up to #35 (JFK). Four more to be issued and then a 'pause' for the next one(s)). I would usually have several in my pocket and would even pass them on to strangers (usually parents with their kids) at local shops or eating places. It was fun to see their reactions. Free gift.

Blessed beyond measure...

When I find a new verse, I usually pin it to my bulletin board above my desk. It is a visual reminder of it until I can add it to memory. 5:09 of Job says, "He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted." (NIV) With all the problems in the world and in our country, it is easy to focus on 'the sides' and not to focus on the real issues or real options. We too often miss the many miracles which are happening all around us. This verse is just 12 words but is incredibly powerful to remember and to keep in your mind.
