14,984...

...is the number of Delta miles I need to get a free ticket to Ghana. Today I received a wonderful gift of Delta SkyMiles! Combined with the miles I had from my first trip I am only 14,984 short to get a reward.

The best part of this gift, however, was the message that came with it. You see, this person was gifted with a ticket to visit her son last year. She, in turn, felt the Lord's prompting to return the favor to me.

It made me think a lot about how life would be if we purposefully sought out ways to bless others with both our time & treasures. I feel personally challenged to do better in this area. I think it would make this crazy world a much nicer place.

A generous man will prosper;
he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.
Proverbs 11:25

I can totally relate to this idea. I feel like we have been challenged to be more giving with our time and energy and resources. I am glad that you have been blessed.
