Father God, when my husband and I
were first married, we agreed to tithe,
while we worked to furnish our apartment.
Our relatives gave us many things.
Through the years we accumulated
a house and furnishings, along with children.
Now our children have their own homes.
When we moved to this retirement community
we sold some things, gave away some,
and put other things on the curb for pick up.
We had to downsize to fit in this apartment.
It doesn’t take much to be happy.
We have been blessed. Thank you, Father God.
“Do not be afraid, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions, and give alms. Make purses for yourselves that do not wear out, an unfailing treasure in heaven, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.”
Hymn: There Shall Be Showers of Blessing
