Giving without Expectation

Yesterday I spent part of the day just going through all my clothes and excess shoes; so I can donate anything I haven’t used recently to the Cancer society. In the area I live they have made it real convenient for anyone to donate, at any time. No longer do you have to wait for the trucks to come pick up your items. I suggest doing this and/or donating your larger items to the Salvation army if you have any, that organization seems to be very credible.

One day a week before Christmas I was led to a store somewhat out of my area. I was led to this man who had no money for food, he was poor and his clothes looked worn. When I drove up I didn’t know why I was there, yet clearly the Angels told me to go there. I walked into the store and walked out. He said he had prayed earlier to God. Which was amazing because while walking in the store, I felt urged to put my things down to go speak to him. A few weeks later I was in the same area again and he was still outside the door. He actually did recognize me and greeted me favorably. He looked in much better mental health this time.

You may spend $10 on yourself on something you may not really need or you could go feed a genuine homeless person, they will not forget & either does heaven.

About 8 years ago, I went through a divorce and I let my spouse keep everything we had owned together, internally knowing that God would one day return it all to me-somehow. I also learned a valuable lesson, that my earth family was irreplaceable. They really came through for me in ways I never expected, above and beyond. I had moved to another state to start a new chapter with my now Ex-husband; well things didn’t didnt quite work out as I had planned and I returned after a few short months. I went back to my home state, and I cross the state borders with just my car, clothes and papers. I left everything else to him. I knew him from another life, I wasn’t to marry him and I remember the warnings I received about him when we first started dating, yet I didn’t listen. Listen to your guides especially when it comes to partners.

After I arrived back home, I was interviewing for local jobs. I had this female friend who was in the business world who was advising me through the interviewing process. I came from Education, the usual dress was– business casual. I worked as a Director at the University and out with all the college students, so I rarely needed a suit. Well my female friend insisted that I borrow a business suit from her to make a good impression. As I really didn’t have any and she mentioned how important it was to look professional while interviewing as she was a recruiter. So, I went over to her upscale apartment and she opened the closet and she must of had at least 50 name brand suits, just sitting there. I was kind of amazed, as she told me how much she had spent on her wardrobe. Her and her husband made well into the 6 figures each. I tried a few on and borrowed one and 1 week later returned the suit to her. I didnt get the job but remembered the sentiment. Who would think I would even be in this place, certainly not I.

Well some 5 years later I met a friend who was getting back on her feet after a bankruptcy and she asked to borrow a suit. At the time, I had about 4 real suits. She came over and tried all 4 on and she borrowed a 2 piece gray set I had. I remembered how I felt years back, now being on the other side. I told her she could keep it. She smiled. I totally empathized where she was at and wanted her to feel she had at least 1 suit to go interview, without having to come see me each time. She kept it for several interviews and once she was back to work, she felt she needed to return it.
Now many years later my mother is giving me a suit as a gift. So you see things come full circle, timing of it all, well that is not for us to know. Even if I’m given this info it’s because I am ready for it and its in my highest good to know, like encourage me.

If you are blessed with an abundance of stuff or money– there are many simple things you can do for someone else, like these above. Its easy to have a heart of giving. Your guides will guide you.

There have been other times as well, where I had things that I liked yet I ran across someone who seem to like the item more than me, so I gave the items to them. Try it, sometime. The material things you have here, you will not take with you when you die but what you do for others-you always will.
