Brighten Someone’s Day

The world is in such turmoil today that we sometimes forget there are good and kind people out there who do random acts of kindness!

A friend recently put a post on her Facebook page about a visit to the pharmacy. Her daughter has Down Syndrome and loves cats but can’t have one because her mother is allergic to them. On this day she had a shirt with a kitty on it.  While she and her daughter were waiting for a prescription a woman in line started a conversation about the shirt. When she found out her daughter can’t have animals she walked away and came back with two little stuffed kitties and bought them for her daughter.  This random act of kindness made her daughter’s day and hers too. It makes me hopeful for all of us.

“Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.” Ephesians 4:32

Have you ever had the opportunity to create a random act of kindness and let the opportunity slip by? I have! Afterwards I think to my self “how difficult would it have been to just ……”. Not difficult at all is the answer. But we are so caught up in our own thoughts that we sometimes just don’t realize what’s happening RIGHT NOW. If your like me you find that’s easier said than done yet it’s such an important rule to live by.

Matthew 6:34 tells us “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”
