The Theme for this week


 
It just happens that I have noticed a theme for this week.
And that it to be kind.
Be kind to those you come in contact with.
You have no idea what they may be dealing with.
Many people have painful things going on in their lives that they are not able to talk about.
And the best thing we can do - is to be kind.
 To show Jesus' love.
Jesus will give us the love to give to those around us.
Or nudge us to do acts of kindness.
Be listening to the still small voice of the Holy Spirit 
so you don't miss a special chance. :O)  
 
 



Life is not made up of great sacrifices and wonderful achievements, but of little things. Kindness and love and courtesy are the marks of the Christian. You need to cherish the precious qualities that existed in the character of Jesus.... In our association with each other, let it be ever remembered that there are chapters in the experience of others that are sealed from mortal eyes. There are sad histories that are written in the books of heaven, which are sacredly guarded from prying eyes. There stand registered long, hard battles with trying circumstances, arising in the very homes, that day by day sap the courage, the faith, the confidence, until the very manhood seems to fall to ruins. But Jesus knows it all, and He never forgets. To such, words of kindness and of affection are welcome as the smile of angels. A strong, helpful grasp of the hand of a true friend is worth more than gold and silver. It helps him to regain the manhood of the man.—Letter 16, May 15, 1886

    1. I certainly needed the reminder- sometimes we get so tied up in our own problems we don't notice that others have problems too. :)

  3. This really hit home with me. My heart was hurt today by a friend. Thank you for reminding me to be kind for Jesus no matter what. I can't let my hurt heart stop me from loving those around me. Just as I wanted to crawl in a hole and cry, you reminded me to press forth. Xoxo
