TOO MUCH “I CAN’T DO . . . “

April 7, 2019

Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.

WHAT HAPPENED TO LOVING OUR NEIGHBORS?

January 31, 2019

Still Loving Thy Neighbors?

Used to be when new folks came to our neighborhood we welcomed them, made friends, greeted them with homemade bread or a meal . . . we all got along and lasting, valued relationships were created.

TWELVE LIKE ME?

May 15, 2018

Jesus did NOT seek 12 with pedigrees.

He invited the tired, sweaty, ordinary 12 who said YES 

and taught them how to change the world!

AUTHENTICITY

April 20, 2018

To repeat another’s words

rather than my own

is the same

as wearing a borrowed hat,

or chasing someone else’s dream.

In order to change the world

for the better

I must be authentic

to do my part.

I am a unique creation of the Most High!

His plan .. . His gifts . . .are best.

The Decision

February 18, 2015

Smile when the sun shines,

Smile when it rains.

How we choose to see the world

Changes everything!

Quote of the Day – Kindness

January 3, 2013

Someone referred to me as kind the other day and my initial reaction was “wow, I thought he loved me.”  Amazing how this world’s misuse of words and acts can change things (he does love me) . . . but this quote says it so well:

Genuine kindness is no ordinary act,

but a gift of rare beauty. 

– Sylvia Rosetti –

 

 


Change The World? It’s Simple . . .

December 16, 2012

Our priest told a great sermon today.  God wants to give us the best.  We need empty hands and we don’t always leap eagerly to relinquishing our hold on our stuff in order for Him to be able to give us what more and better He has.  “It’s simple.”  God will help us . . . we can turn to Him with our fears . . . change . . . it is  scary sometimes, but oh, when we let Him work through us and fill us with His grace . . . we can.  Favorite quote from the sermon?  “Even an acorn can find a way to roll down the street.”  As I read the following quote, the changes God can help us with . . .  the “yes, but what can I do” and the “my small effort . . . will it really matter?”  Those thoughts all came together with a resounding Yes I can make a difference!

I have this theory that if one person can go out of their way to show compassion, then it will start a chain reaction of the same. People will never know how far a little kindness can go. – Rachel Joy Scott –

Let’s do this, shall we?  Not just for ourselves. . . let’s do it for the children!
