The Lord woke me again this morning so I could talk to you. Well, I think we are seriously getting the April Showers! We should have tons of May flowers, Just think of all the many colors we will see. It's time to spring clean, re-arrange and put a new spin on things. You know, this time of year I love to work outside. I love to fix up my yard, new furniture, new pot plants, paint things. I paint my flower pots every year. Not always the same color. I like to shake things up. Well when I change colors, it's like it's brand new again. I know its not feasible to repaint the outside of your home every spring, but there is always some little something to make a change. Paint your shutters a different color, your porch or exterior doors. The smallest things make the biggest impact. You know, its that way in life as well. A smile, a thank you, an "I appreciate you" could mean the world to someone. We don't always know what others have going on in their lives so we should always be kind, thoughtful and loving. I think even our flowers are able to tell us how much we are cherished. They stand at attention to show off their beauty. Their fragrance so sweet. Thoughts for you today: "But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, "that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly. Matthew 6:4-5
If but only once per day you show kindness to others, your heart will be filled with joy. What a wonderful way to life, joyful.
