Life Giving 4: Simple Just Got Complicated
Pearlann is fiercely intentional about life. Just to be sure she is not missing anything, she engaged a superlative life coach to keep her sharp.
When she turned 75, she decided that her playing field was too small. Since she has a spirit of sonship, she is accustomed to finding opportunities, not barriers.
A quick look around her world revealed that her husband went to the library every Wednesday to play dominoes. She invited herself along and found someone sitting there who could use a friend, and life giving promptly flowed.
Then her husband’s schedule changed. Pearlann had not driven for years because of some minor health problems (which she is attacking in a fiercely intentional manner).
She got on her computer and discovered that people her age most often get in accidents while turning left so she found a route that is all right hand turns coming and going. She now drives herself to the library where she is a fiercely intentional life giver, mostly through listening.
If you try to be a life giver, you are sure to run into unexpected costs. If you are a hard core life giver, you will find a way to keep on giving. If it was just a hobby, you will have your perfect justification for not doing it any more. (Provided, however, you never have to look Pearlann in the eye and tell her your excuse).
