Simple Gifts


Hospitals and medical research centers are named in honor of major donors. Their gifts help to make medical breakthroughs possible. Now…day by day…it is your quieter, simpler gifts, given lovingly, often without recognition, that nurture and sustain the person you care for.

God’s love is deep and broad. Draw on it freely and often as your simploe gifts touch those around you today…

–    A thoughtful, kind response in a tense situation.

–    An unspoken prayer, drawing on God’s resources when  yours are drained.

–    A loving touch meant to show our Father’s compassion.

O Lord, may everything I do today be a gift to you and to those you call me to serve. Amen.
