Labor of LOVE…

Generosity should be in our hearts 24/7 or 365/12, in short, all the time. i admit, i am a little tightfisted, not that i am stingy (or so i think), i just feel i don’t have much to share, i only have enough. but, how much is enough? the bible says, “give generously to them and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to.” Deuteronomy 15:10

i have yet to learn to let go of the things i keep (including money) for the sake of just keeping them. sometimes, God does give us precisely just enough to teach us to share to those who are in need.

LABOR OF LOVE

this is what my sister-in-law does. she, my brother and their son, live a very modest, simple life, but they are very rich in generosity. ten years ago, with her $100.00 extra in her pocket, she started her own ministry of feeding the hungry, about 25 homeless people, until by words of mouth, her ministry, now called “Labor of Love”, slowly grew from 140 to 400 and now to feed 700 with the help of other people’s generosity and selfless hearts. their story can be read at this site  www.laborofloveproject.wordpress.com (Note: this site is still under construction – May 15, 2013)

the first part of their giving happened last December 1 in downtown Los Angeles and in Whittier. part two happens on December 14 feeding 200 people in what they’d call the winter shelter through St. Christopher Parish in West Covina, CA. this happens twice a year, during Easter and Christmas. it is a feat what she started, and to make it grow and keep on doing is much more noble. God truly will bless her and her family as well as all those involved… 🙂

Labor of Love’s motto:
“We love because He first loved us.” 1John 4:19
“Love ought to show itself in deeds over and above words.” St Ignatius de Loyola
