Full Circle...


At the heart of frugality is contentment, don't you think?

And generosity, as well. The more I save, the more I have to give away.

The more I have to give away, the greater my joy.

The greater my joy, the more my heart swells with gratitude and I'm back to a greater contentment with the abundant grace and blessings of God. 

So, if contentment with generosity brings joy and gratitude and ultimately greater contentment, it seems to me that I deprive myself - not by living frugally - but when I avoid faces and stories, and offer numerous lame reasons why I can't respond.
