~ Secret Giving ~

Do you enjoy doing for others? Have you ever thought of how little things that you do for another can brighten their day? I have had people in my life that are truly, "givers" ~ They enjoy doing for others and their thoughtfulness has blessed me over and over and has helped me through some hard times. Today, think about someone you can bless with your thoughtfulness. Maybe it is in the form of a phone call, a note or card, sending a little gift,praying for them, or deciding that you are going to be their secret giver. A secret giver is someone that gives quietly, without the person knowing. It can be a lot of fun to mail or drop off special surprises to their door and send special little notes and cards through the mail. It is fun to make someone's day a little brighter and you (the secret giver) will be blessed, too.

~ Ramshackle Rose ~

~ Ramshackle Rose by Cathy Marie Hake ~
This is a wonderful summer read about a secret giver in a wonderful town. The people in the town are finding secret gifts with their name on it and don't know who the secret giver is. There is a lot to this story and it is such a sweet book!! You can Google this book or find it at (A wonderful Christian book club/ publisher with books that are rated " G") It might also be on Ebay!! Hope you'll enjoy one of my favorites!!

~ More on secret giving soon!! ~
