The Gifts That Keep On Giving

Hello my sweet friends, another day is here, another day closer to Christmas. If you are like me and my dear Lovebug, you are probably in a tight money crunch this year. Due to all of my medical problems, we are looking at a huge stack of medical bills. Unfortunately, right now, all we can do is look. Of course, we are in a state of prayer also. We know God will help us through, as He always does. Please know, He can, and will help you through also. Oh, how He loves you, and me. If you are like us, and stressing over what you are going to do about gifts this year, it is time to quit stressing my friends. I have a solution for you, it is what we are going to do. Are you ready?? Give yourself away this year, and every year. Wonder what that crazy shortybear is talking about?? Well, she is going to explain her plan to you. Give your heart away, if you have not already given it to Jesus, please do. If you have given it to Jesus, but need to renew, or refresh, please do. Do not put it off any longer, it is so very important. He is waiting with wide open arms. Your name is written on His heart, now, it is time for His name to be written on your heart. If you need, or want to talk to me about this, or if you need a prayer partner, just email me. My email address is shortybear.63@att.net Then, give your heart to others, by loving them with all of your heart , unconditionally, there is no greater gift, than pure love. Then, give your time away, do not be selfish with your time, instead, be selfless. Think of others, and their needs, not your needs, it will be good for both of you. Give your ears away, sounds weird right?? But, listening, really listening, will mean so much to others. Give your eyes away, another weird suggestion right?? Looking into anothers heart, can, and will tell you so much. It will help you to understand why they are the way they are, and help you to meet them where they need you to meet them the most. Thanks for taking the time to read this post today, may God greatly bless you.

Giving of one's self is the best gift of all. Bless you.

Giving of yourself is the best gift. And, to make sure others know it is their Christmas gift, so they don't expect something else, you could give out coupons! A wonderful idea!

Yes, my dear Shortybear


What a great word of encouragement for others today but as for you( and your Lovebug) and your house, we will serve the LORD! This is what this means! No, no, no... that's not crazy talk...that's God's heart! Beating and speaking through you... Give of yourselves.
Hang all those bills on your tree
with a paper clip and let God DO MIRACLES on 34th St.right there in good ole Chattanooga, TN. may God pour out blessings upon you and provide and as He does or as you are able to pay little by little,
hang a stocking with a new prayer,
THANK YOU GOD...GREAT THINGS YOU HAVE DONE! I wish I could help but I do know that God can... and will.


LOVE YOU so much...sending a renewed HUG today (except for my fungus finger, I'm doing fine) PRAISE GOD from WHOM ALL BLESSING FLOW...
(I know easier said than done, but we BELIEVE in the One who DOES and CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS!!! Hallelujah!)

I know what a giver you are and I know what a giver Jesus is. This shows me the fruit of your challenge to us. Our obedience combined with Him to give ourselves away is powerful.

A perfect way to shop this year... a gift that keeps giving all year long.

Love you.

Beautiful post from your heart - reaching out to others and giving them what they need to know Jesus (those who don't)and encouraging those that need it, another gift from the heart.

I agree with Peggy, you should put those bills on your tree and pray over them everyday and I feel sure that you will begin to take them down as God supplies the need for each one.

Blessings, my sweet new friend, AE

After seeing your sweet comment on my TT post, commenting my response on my blog as I normally do, I had to check out your TT post as well as some others & decided to post here... 1st of all I was so thankul to see your name & post. It let know you are still alive and well. As well as you can be for now. Then I read your other posts but really loved this one. Esp since $ is tight this year. I have been blessed with artistic talent and can usually create something artistic in an inexpensive way. I am talking $1.28 plus tax a gift! So I am trully blessed. I am so thankful for the Dollar Tree too! I loved your post. May I pass it on? May God continue to bless you with your giving of yourself. So thankful I read this today.
