Generosity is the core virtue for the month of December in our PUMP children's classes. Each week of the month, we discuss a different attribute of generosity. Today as I assisted in classes, I thought over all the generosity that has been shown to me over the past week. Last month's core virtue was gratitude. So I thought I'd take this opportunity to show gratitude for the generosity that has been shown to me:

  • Thank you Ike and Kaelea for including me in all the "festivities" of your preparation to leave for Africa.
  • Thank you Jessica for giving up extra sleep/study time on Thursday mornings to hang out with me.
  • Thank you Sybil for the tickets to the Steven Curtis Chapman/Mercy Me Christmas concert.
  • Thank you Kristi for thinking of me to share the free tickets you got to the concert with me.
  • Thank you Cheronn for the tickets to the Portland premier of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.
  • Thank you Jill and Jake for not being too put out with me when I went to see the movie without you. It won't be the same, I know, but I'd like to see it again with you when I'm in Lubbock.
  • Thank you Mom and Dad for the care-package full of fun Christmas decorations.
  • Thank you Emily for letting me rant and openly share where I am at, and thank you for calmly sharing Truth with me when I'm looking right past it.
  • Thank you Emily, Steve, Alasha and Cheronn for taking care of me yesterday when I was sick.
  • Thank you Markell for being part of our lives at PUMP. Thank You God for Markell's adoption!
  • Thank you Steve, Alasha and Jonah for making me so much a part of your life here.
  • Thank You God for making me fearfully and wonderfully and giving me a heart made to be filled only by You.
And for all of those wonderfully good and generous things that happened throughout the week that I have forgotten. Thank you for each one!
