This is one wacky holiday we can all sink our teeth into.  It doesn’t take a lot of work.  It can be something as simple as paying someone a compliment, helping them carry their groceries to the car, make a meal, share a good book.  Being kind to others isn’t something we should just set aside for one day a year.  Like Valentines Day it should be something we naturally think about and act upon every day of the year.

Be careful though.  There are those out there that aren’t used to being treated kindly.  They may think you have ulterior motives.  They may find your kindness offensive. They might believe you’re being politically incorrect.

Isn’t it a sad state of affairs, when we have to worry about how people will react to a good deed.  When you think about it, we shouldn’t even consider it a good deed.  It should be a simple extension of who we are.  Our good deeds are a result of the gratitude we have for God’s intervention in our lives.  We shouldn’t do them expecting to get something in return or because it’s expected of us.

Today and every day, stop and think about what Jesus did for you.  He didn’t think twice about shedding His blood for us.  He willingly gave up His life and rose from death so that we could share in eternal life.  That isn’t just random.  It was part of God’s plan from the beginning of time.




About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    Thank you for the reminder! When we ask the Lord to guide us and open our eyes to the needs of the ones He places in our day to day life, it is a blessing to BE a blessing to others:-)

  2. Oh, I love this! I didn’t know there was such a day! And yes, it is sad that kindness has become so rare that people distrust it. 😦 Hugs to you, Kathy!
