When I Give

Happy Giving! Joyful Giving! Happy Boxing Day!
When I Give,
I give to give
To give because I know,
Because I understand …
Sometimes I don’t but I can imagine
It’s not so the world will know that I did
But it’s okay if they find out although often uncomfortable
I wish I could give more
Or at least in the manner requested
But when I give I give to give
When I don’t feel it
I hold it back and pray
Because if I give it half heartedly
I feel it won’t be much a blessing as when I do wholly so I wait
I will give not because I’m guilted
Not because I’m investing in a possible future when I might need a favor returned;
But because I believe however small it might make a difference
With prayers accompanied, I give to give.
