- Wedding: November 2011
Just had to share – I was in Vegas this week, and the Shops at the Venetian has an old coin store. I went in (I was drawn in by the 1611 KJV Bible). They had lots of coins from Biblical times – it was amzing! The cheapest item in the store, was a bowl of Widows Mites. They are significant because of a passage in Mark 12 – where Jesus was sitting in front of the treasury, and people were giving to charity. Rich were giving a small portion of their wealth, but an old widow gave her only two mites, all that she had.
What do you think? Appropriate present? Our pastor has done so much for us over the past year, and just giving cash for his time didn’t seem appropriate – we really felt the need to give a gift too.
