Thoughtful Thursday


All I have is the Lord's not mine to give or withhold it;
I but distribute His gifts to the poor, and to those of His people
who, in journeyings often, surrender their lives to His service.
His, not mine, are the gifts, and only so far can I make
them mine, as in giving I add my heart to whatever is given.

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Blessings on your Thursday, dearest friends!

A precious reminder, Kelly-Anne, and it's one that is extra special to me at this point. I've been weeding out some and been able to donate some items to others to use to bless children and the elderly. It's precious to know God knew about it before I did. Thanks for the beautiful photo and precious Longfellow quote. And I always love the Scripture post in the end. Hugs!
