Give it away…

“How different would our life be were we truly able to trust that it multiplied in being given away!  How different would our life be if we could but believe that every little act of faithfulness, every gesture of love, every word of forgiveness, every little bit of joy and peace will multiply and multiply as long as there are people to receive it…and that even then–there will be leftovers.  Imagine that your trusting that every little movement of love you make will ripple out into ever new and wider circles…just as a little stone thrown into a still pond.  Imagine, imagine…Could you ever be depressed, angry resentful, or vengeful? Could you ever hate, destroy or kill?  Could you ever despair of the meaning of your short earthly existence?”     Henri Nouwen–Life of the Beloved
