My daughter and I love receiving packages.
We’re slowly getting our life delivered to us, instead of going to public places. Bath and Body Works came in the mail, and my mail lady walked it up to my front door. (It wouldn’t fit in the mailbox) She does that with a lot of our packages, no matter the size.
She laughs when I squeal over the package.
Opening the box, I felt a nudge to give some away. It was just lotion, but it was my favorite lotion, and this scent has been retired. I’ve worn it for years, and it’s become my smell, but why would God be prompting me to give a bottle to my mail lady?
We don’t know each other very well, and I didn’t know if she would like something so girlie, but I was willing to take a chance on it.
I wrapped a bottle of the lotion in a note, placed it in the mailbox and went for a walk.
About halfway through my walk, I looked up to see the mail lady’s car coming down the road. She was beeping the horn to get my attention, and I walked over to her car. Her window was rolled down a bit, and looking inside, I could see she was rubbing her hands together. The smell of the lotion floated through the open window.
She was so excited! She thanked me and said, “I never buy myself girlie stuff like this!”
When God gives us more than enough, we can give it away. This feels different than giving something away I don’t use anymore. With it being out of the box new, it’s more like sharing.
Finishing my walk home I remembered, sharing is caring.
