The Art of Giving..


THE ART OF GIVING

We give of ourselves when we give gifts of the heart:

love, kindness, joy, understanding,sympathy, tolerance, forgiveness.

We give of ourselves when we give gifts of the mind:

ideas, dreams, purposes, ideals,principles, plans, inventions, projects, poetry.

We give of ourselves when we give gifts of the spirit:

prayer, vision, beauty, aspiration,peace, faith.

We give of ourselves when we give the gift of words:

encouragement, inspiration, guidance.

Emerson said it well:
“Rings and jewels are not gifts,but apologies for gifts.The only true gift isa portion of thyself.”
