The Gift of Giving: It feels like these landmarks keep popping up. I don’t mind. Less than a month ago, in my blog “Celebrating Milestones,” I reflected with gratitude on some memorable moments in 2020.

Is there a better time than Good Friday or Resurrection Sunday to reflect on the selfless sacrifice of one person for the sake of others?
“A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.”-Proverbs 11:25
Ice Cream. Donuts. Cheesecake. Brownies. These aren’t exactly your healthiest food choices, but they all have at least one thing in common: they’re sweet. Our taste buds are attracted to sweetness.
