Sharing is Caring

28 Aug

When I look around my yard and garden at my house, I’ve noticed a trend. Most of what I have planted was given to me.

Here’s the iris my mom gave me about four or five years ago.

Sharing is Caring | The Farm PaparazziWhat an example all these women have set; to give generously from what God has provided. I pray all these beautiful plants will serve as a reminder to share with others in return.

You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. – 2 Corinthians 9:7-8

    Why buy when they multiply!

    I need to thin and share some of mine this fall. 🙂

    This is a great article! I can relate with my small-town and my home garden that my mother always planted every year. I think that being able to give generously is a trait that is getting harder and harder to find these days but is not lost. It is kept alive through traditions and closely knit towns. This is a good reminder that God gave us a purpose, and it is to help those around you in order to be returned later. Thank-you for sharing this!

      Thanks, Alison! Yes, I’ve found the more generous I am, the more God blesses my life. It’s wonderful to share His bounty with others and receive thoughtful gifts from friends and neighbors. Thanks for stopping by the blog! – Liz
