With This Ring...

My dear friend, Jeff Goins, is requesting that I, and any of you who feel compelled repost this article to get the word out about this selfless cause.

"Ali Eastburn decided to make a radical gift and give up her wedding ring to help dig wells in Africa. Since then, she has been challenging people to give radically to change the lives of people around the world. Right now, With This Ring is auctioning off the rings that people have donated from around the country (which you can see at http://www.withthisring.cmarket.com/)." *Blogger wouldn't let me insert the link so you could actually click on it from this post.*

They are also doing a 12 Rings of Christmas feature on the blog to highlight 12 of the rings and the stories behind each of them (Dec. 7-18). You can link to the blog at http://withthisring.wordpress.com/ (where a new ring will be featured each day for the next 12 days).

Now, this reminds us what true giving is really about. I don't know that I am at a point that I am unselfish enough to donate my own ring, but I am amazed and inspired by these people who are able to do so themselves.

That's really neat and a good reminder to us that Christmas is all about the giving.

Have a wonderfully blessed day.

I was wondering how your grandma is doing, I still remember her in my prayers.

How sweet! It's always good to remember what the true meaning of Christmas is.

To answer your question about NYC, I really like Christmas time the best. There is so much to do and see. However, Central Park is beautiful in the fall.
