Our Give Away Jar

Some days we give away a dollar when we're out and about, and some days we fill a money jar at home, and some days we do both! Every once in a while, it's time to empty that jar, and today is the day!! We're going to split the stack of $1 bills and use half to feed hungry families and the other half to donate for clean water. Blessings!!!

The Cure For Hurriedness

Well, here we are in the last month of 2014, and I’m starting to feel that hurriedness of the holiday season, trying to get everything done before Christmas and the New Year, finishing up business matters, and so on. And I’m wondering if you’re asking yourself the same question that I’m now asking – “how did this year go by soooo fast?”

OK, Todd... remember to take time out to breathe… :)

One of the best ways for me to slow down, and to take a pause from the hurriedness – whether it be end of year, or anytime during the year – is to reflect on how grateful I am for all of the abundance in my life. Not just money, not just things, but for love, family, and good health!

So when I give away my dollars this week, I am choosing to slow down… to pause and reflect… to be thankful… and to take time out for my gratitude really unfolding in each moment and to be genuinely released when I give away each dollar!

Ahh… now that feels right… and it feels good!

Those Gentle Reminders!

This is a sweet story from Debbie...

I have to admit I have been slacking on giving away my dollar a day.  Started thinking... "This is silly. How is $1.00 a day really going to make a difference?"  Then recently while on a casino weekend getaway, I walked outside for some air, and right there in the drive out front was a one dollar bill just laying there waiting for me to find it!  I scooped it up and giggled like I had just found a treasure!!  That little $1.00 bill put me in such a good mood for some reason!!  I had to laugh at myself...  OK now I get it!!  Back at dropping my dollars!  :)

More Than Enough

With Give Away A Dollar A Day, I've begun to notice a real shift.  I've experienced the feeling that I had more than enough in the very moment that I was giving away.  More than enough because I was able to give to and prosper someone else…

So... the next time you give away a dollar, say to yourself, “Right now, in this very moment, I have more than enough!”

This can be very freeing!!!

The Lost Purse

I had a pretty neat experience recently...

I had pulled into the parking lot of a store, and as I opened my car door to get out, I looked down and found a small, ladies purse on the ground, kind of like a clutch. No one was around, so I assumed it was lost, and I went to open it. I found a BUNCH of cash in it, and I started shouting prayers of gratitude and thanksgiving! But then... I quickly realized... it... wasn't mine...... :(

Now, there were also credit cards and several forms of ID, so whoever lost this was surely going to miss it. So I decided I would go into the store to get what I came for, and if it was still there when I came back to my car, I would take action.

Well, it was, so I went back inside and turned it in to the store manager. The manager said "Thank you very much, we've been looking for this". I knew right then that I had done the right thing. But...... just before handing it over to the manager, I stuffed a crisp one dollar bill inside the purse... And then I got to thinking... that just may have been the only time that a person had ever LOST their wallet and actually MADE money!
