Wayside Flowers

Pluck not the wayside flower,
It is the traveller’s dower;
A thousand passers-by
Its beauties may espy,
May win a touch of blessing
From Nature’s mild caressing.
The sad of heart perceives
A violet under leaves
Like sonic fresh-budding hope;
The primrose on the slope
A spot of sunshine dwells,
And cheerful message tells
Of kind renewing power;
The nodding bluebell’s dye
Is drawn from happy sky.
Then spare the wayside flower!
It is the traveller’s dower.

-William Allingham

Joy of Giving

Giving flower“Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So, spread your love everywhere you go.” – Mother Teresa

Giving means you are blessed with “something”.

Giving means that you choose to bless someone else with what you have been blessed with.

Giving is opening up your heart without expecting anything in return.

Giving is from the goodness of your heart.

GivingĀ leads to humility and bringsĀ peace.

Giving is not a favor.

Giving is sharing what we are blessed with – our ability to love, forgive and share what we have.

Giving is an expression of worship.

Giving is a joy.
