If you haven't yet read recent Life with Lynnie (LwL) entries, please do so. If you have or, if you do, you'll understand what I am discussing, today.
If you've read those entries, you'll be aware that my friend, A was unable to sell those Christmas wreaths she made.
As I said previously, this made me feel badly for her. Especially since it took a lot of work, to create them.
Just so you know, she wasn't charging much, either. In fact, I've never seen anyone ever sell any kind of wreaths for that low price.
Did A take them home with her?
Believe it or not, she didn't. Well, she did take a couple of them home with her, if I remember correctly.
What did she do with the others?
A gave me a couple of them, letting me select them. She asked me to pick them out and give them to my daughters, B and P. And, I did.
I must admit, I did offer to pay A, for them. But, she refused to accept any money, at all! :(
I was thankful to A.
Plus, I was thankful that both B and P liked them. I was also happy that they messaged A on FB and thanked her for their gifts she gave them.
In addition, A gave some away at the location where we spent the day.
Some children came by looking at them and admiring them. These were children of those running the sale event.
A had a few of those children make a choice as to what they wanted. And, she gave the wreaths to them... also, for FREE!
What a wonderful thing it was that A gave them away.
Thinking of this, reminded me of Luke 6:38, "Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again."
Yes, we need to give. For when we do things for others, it shall be measured to us, again. It will be done by God, for us.
I must admit, my friend A is truly a blessing to others. And, not just to me.
Not just because she did what she did that day. But, also because she always has a loving heart.
Thank You for bringing my friend, A into my life, Lord. Thank You!
May You bless her, repeatedly.
Until next time...
