Indeed when we are tested - financially or otherwise - we can both find out what the depth of our care is as well as take another step toward goodness, which doesn't necessarily make us feel good about ourselves, but means everything.

Thanks for dropping by, Gerard. Now more than ever people need a larger perspective and a sense of community.

Funny-- this very notion caused me to post yesterday on my blog. When thinking about it, I came to the realization that we are all conditioned to think that giving $$ is the be all and end all. Yet a very wise friend of mine always advises that giving your time, talent or treasure is of equal importance and that one is not better than the other.

I also came to the understanding that my giving is actually a process whereby I acknowledge and claim the abundance in my life. If I have enough to share then, I have more than I need and I should be thankful.

Thanks for the post. In times of crisis it is important for us to keep our feet grounded in reality, which means an equal balance of good and bad.

Thanks, will blog it.
