This Makes Me Want to Give

Sacred Rhythms

Over at, we're thinking about giving.

Just a little goes a long way, to create a thoughtful and beautiful community— right in the middle of a crowded, sometimes competitive-feeling online world. So this morning, I hopped over and did a little giving. I don't say this as some kind of pat-me-on-the-back thing. I just think it's important for you to know that I'm willing to give to what I believe is a beautiful thing (I bet you and I may have even met at TheHighCalling... see how beautiful that is? :)

After I gave my little gift, I was pleasantly surprised to see Sam's smiling face pop up, with a thank-you blurb beside his picture. I even listened (that was pretty cool) to him say his thank-you, because there was a little button you could push to hear his pleasant voice.

Anyway. This got me thinking: how fun would it be if I gave something to anyone who might consider giving a little to (Okay, I can't give to everyone, but I could give to a giveaway winner, so here we are.) For the giveaway, I chose a book that has impacted my life in a Sabbath kind of way, just as has impacted me in a Sabbath kind of way.

And you don't have to do this to enter the Sacred Rhythms giveaway, but I would love it if you'd consider doing one of these things before adding your name to my comment box:

- tweet's give page
- Facebook's give page
- give $10 to encourage 5 people at
- write a blog post telling what has meant to you (and include a link to the give page)

Let me know if you do any of these things and I'll try to retweet, share, and link to your own sweet gifts.

Comment by Thursday, May 12, for a chance to win Sacred Rhythms. And thanks for being a gift to me. :)

Fisrt I just want to say Im not posting my name here to be put into a drawing as I feel Im already a winnder everyday I wake up in Him. But I just want to commit what an encouragement this post is to me. and That I love how you have the heart of giving. I am always asking God where to give and where to place my time talents and gifts. So I just wanted to be an encouragement to you.

May the Lord bless you and all be encouraged and up lifted that come to visit you and the sites you metioned in Jesus name.

LL, maybe you can clarify something for me regarding the new donation info. at THC... Does it cost money for THC each time I leave a comment following an article?


I better start collecting cans and scrap metal.

I'll be clicking that button today! And hopefully getting a post up about it soon (my blogging has been in a bit of a slump... maybe this will pick it up again.:)

Love the idea of giving begetting more giving... And that's a Sabbath idea too, right?
