Change for a dollar . . .

You want to know what just one dollar can buy - you CAN'T MISS THIS!

A W E S O M E ! A slow start, but WORTH the time I promise!

Change For Dollar Movie: Is he asking for Change, or is he asking for CHANGE? Follow a man as he affects multiple peoples' lives with just one dollar, proving that it doesn't take much to be the change in someone's life. Written and directed by Sharon Wright.
Thank you Jeannie.
This is the thought for the day too! Great message this time of year.

That picture is absolutely breathtaking. The fall here has been spectacular (yes, that word is not overkill). I do not remember the last time that the yellows and red and oranges have been more vibrant!

I will have to check out the video tonight (work has that url blocked)...Hope you have a marvelous Monday!

I am crying, and I have a fullness in my chest. That was one of the most powerful messages with (hardly) a word spoken. When I got to the end, and he gets the penny back to start it all over again, I nearly lost it.

This is such a wonderful, wonderful message not only about giving and about the difference a little change can make, but about NOTICING.

I think one of the greatest problems in our world today is that people don't notice the others around them.

Loved it, Sandie.

What a wonderful video, Sandie. It brought tears to my eyes. We never know what affect even our smallest actions may have on someone else. We need to always be looking for a way to help others. Thanks for posting this. Hugs to you, my friend.♥

Hi Sandie ~~ Happy Thanksgiving!
Thank you for reading my Succintly Your microFiction story. You might like to do that one. GMa hasn't built up a very large following but it might be catching. There were at least 40 or 50 when Susan did it. Then Susan found a job and quite her little meme.

I'm watching your Tim Tebow video. I might read his book, it will be interesting I know. Almost always I would root against him because he was always leading the wrong team in the game I watched. But I was glad when he won the Heisman.
..
BTW, we have an underdog who may be in contention for this year's Heisman, Case Keenum of the University of Houston. He has set many new records. Also he plays for my alma matter.
..
I am glad his Mom didn't abort him. I am glad for every child saved from abortion! Yes, God has a plan for every one of these children.

Absolutely loved it, Sandie. That he took it within him not to "hoard" but to share and to effect change in others if they would allow themselves to do that, like the little kid at the end of the movie. Thanks for sharing this, Sandie!!! Bet you are getting ready for Thanksgiving! I hoipe it is a nice one for you!

betty

Grandma Bonnie said...

It sounds good I will have to check it out.

Sharon said...

Sandie - I am so glad that I watched this beautiful little film. It was so well done, and I just had tears in my eyes the whole time. What a great message. It isn't the amount we give - it's the heart behind it. Remember what Jesus was able to do with two loaves of bread and five fish. Generosity sends ripples of love well beyond the gift...

GOD BLESS!

Desiree said...

So very touching, especially at this time of the year. Thank you for sharing this, Sandie!
