Scatter Gather Rather

A  L  O  H  A !
" It's not what you gather,
but what you scatter 
that tells what kind of life
you have lived. "
                         Helen Walton

" One gives freely, 
yet grows all the richer; 
another withholds 
what he should give, 
and only suffers want. "
                        Proverbs 11:24

" For with the 
measure you use, 
it will be 
measured to you." 
                Luke 6:38

It does seem to be
 the Givers
who get the most
out of life: 

In good measure,
pressed down,
shaken together;
Plenty to share.

Much of what
others most need
from ourselves
is free,
within the realms of
attitude & behavior.

The world you believe in
builds itself around you,
or rather:
YOU build it
every day.

I'm placing this post
right HERE,
just SO.
Another brick
in the walk.

Thank You 
for lingering!
              Fondly, cloudia

It's great when you have enough to give. And I don't just mean money. It's about having an abundance of life.
