Receiving Graciously

It will all come to us one day even though we have probably experienced it many times in our own lives-receiving.

We have learned how to give, how to minister. We’ve learned to “be of help.” It’s appears to be a different set of skills yet they may be strangely connected.

To receive. To welcome the other in. It is never to early to learn. To receive and to allow the other to be of service. To welcome the help as a gift and with a smile allows the other to be enhanced. To let go of being and doing and to embrace being and receiving can be a challenge and opens the heart in ways that we could never ask for or imagine.

Yes, giving and receiving are strangely connected.
