Luke 6:38
Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."

Each week my mailbox is filled with free items such as coupons, recipe books and samples of everyday products. I get more items than I could ever use so what I plan to do is donate some of to a women's shelter in December. The perishables I will use but the non-perishables will be donated. Who couldn't use maxi pads, tampons, trash bags, pamper, laundry soap and shampoo.
I will keep adding to the box below each week until it's full. After that we'll begin again filling another box, and another all the way up until December. I'll keep you posted on the progress.

Do you agree or disagree that giving opens up opportunities for us to receive?


  1. Great Idea. Im hoping to do the same thing this year

  2. i so totally agree with you! God blesses us thru our giving and for our giving. :)

Usually you'll see your comment published in under an hour, but it may take up to a day or so during evenings or over the weekend. While I am eager to facilitate civil conversation by publishing most comments, I am not inclined to publish those that strike me as offensive, vulgar, overly personal, cynical, snarky, deceptive, disrespectful, irrelevant, redundant or unnecessarily contentious. I also do not allow links to YouTube and for profit web sites or blogs.
