"When you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do, that they may have glory from men. I say to you, they have their reward. But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret; will Himself reward you openly." Matthew 6:2-4
Last week I received in the mail the cookbook, "Patricia Wells at Home in Provence", a gift from one of my blogging friends who chose to give in secret. I am so very touched that someone would go out of their way to bless me with something that was a desire of my heart. Especially poignant at this time in my life, when everything around me seems topsy turvy, and from all outward appearances, things look like they are falling apart. I may never get to say a proper "thank you" to their face, but I am a firm believer in "paying it forward", and will be looking for the opportunity to be doing unto others as has been done unto me.
Thank you. And may theLord bless you, anonymous.
