Start by doing what's necessary,
then do what's possible, and suddenly
you are doing the impossible.
—Francis of Assisi
Of course, I'm quoting the saint who venerated poverty above all else, so that might not really be helpful. On the other hand, they say whatever you need, give that, so living with an open hand may be just the way to ensure that money worries won't come to stay. In any case, faith is the thing. Faith that we will be protected, that we will have what we need, that we will be able to provide for our loved ones. St. Francis of Assisi was Italian born. The photo above is of my daughter in Italy last summer, looking into her little red wallet with an expression of perfect faith that what she is seeking will be found there. This is my lesson for today.
