In today’s first reading, St. Paul in his 2nd letter to the Corinthians says…
“Each must do as already determined, without sadness or compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
This is one of those days each year that I try to bring the scripture reading to light for a special occasion. Today is my brother Bob’s birthday. He went to his eternal rest almost 10 years ago. My brother was a hard working and dedicated man who was in the business of serving others. And yes, he was a cheerful giver.
He was a very special man and left us with his beautiful family of which I believe he is extremely proud of. Randy, Robin, Donna, Tim and Kristine now carry on Bob’s nature of a cheerful giver. I love you Bob. Please pray for us!
