When God asked me to do this, I was really excited because I knew how much it would bless others.
I was SO scared. Why? Because I didn’t feel worthy enough to take this on.
Here’s another but.
BUT I knew God wanted me to do this. So I pressed on!
I had a hard time finding who I wanted to Give to this week. There are SO many great people in my life!
There was one person that has stuck in my mind that I really wanted to do something for. She has blessed me by providing a house-cleaning job when I needed it the most. So I started with her.
A Blessing for a Blessing!
So, can you guess what I did for my first Giving Challenge? Baked, but of course.
I made a Cherry Pie In A Jar! The idea came from the blog “Explore The Cabin”. Click on the link to find the recipe….a very easy, yet creative recipe!
For the pie crust; I used the Butter Pie Crust recipe from Aunt Ruthie from Sugar Pie Farmhouse.
OH MY, that crust was GOOD and Easy, also!
I have a love/hate relationship with pie crusts…but not this one!
As I wrote out a card to thank her for providing extra income for me, I couldn’t help but feel complete GRATITUDE.
Of course, I was always thankful for this extra job…but in doing this for her, my heart was just smiling with GRATITUDE for her. She was an instrument in God’s hands in helping me in tight financial times.
When she was gone, I left this on her counter as I continued cleaning her house.
She returned home a little earlier than I expected. But with that, I got a surprised “thank you!”…and a “what do I do with it"?.
Oops! I didn’t think to put instructions to say “This is your own personal slice of pie that you can eat right from the jar”.
*note to self: put instructions on things that are a little out of the ordinary.
