Monday Ponderings {May 27th}

Jessie Wilcox Smith - Sweet and Low

“Purposeful giving is not as apt to deplete one’s resources: it belongs to that natural order of giving that seems to renew itself even in the act of depletion. The more one gives, the more one has to give – like milk in the breast.”

~Anne Morrow Lindbergh

  1. What a beautiful way of looking at giving. How could I have read “Gift From the Sea” years ago and missed this? Renewal in the act of depletion. Is this the act of relying on Him? Yes, much to think about.

    1. I know. I’m thinking on it as well…I want to reread Gift from the Sea now. As I’m pondering this, I’ve been finishing up Ourselves book 2 with ladies from Nancy Kelly’s class and wow, some really good things alongside this to think on. Thanks for stopping by, friend.
