Finding Joy in Kind Words…Day Four


A person finds joy in giving an apt reply and how good is a timely word! Proverb 15:23

I don’t think some people really know how much a simple kind word means to another person. Today was an ordinary Tuesday but at the end of the day I received such kind words from a dear friend. Words that I know came from the heart. Today I find joy in kindness in a world that is not always so kind. I find joy in trustworthy friends which I am so blessed with!

“Kind words do not cost much. They never blister the tongue or lips. Though
they do not cost much, the accomplish much. They make other people
good-natured. They also produce their own image in other men’s souls, and a
beautiful image it is.” – Blaise Pascal

” A smile is a curve that sets everything straight”

Smiles for You

Smiling is infectious; you catch it like the flu,

When someone smiled at me today, I started smiling too.

I passed around the corner and someone saw my grin

When he smiled I realized I’d passed it on to him.

I thought about that smile then I realized its worth,

A single smile, just like mine, could travel round the earth.

So, if you feel a smile begin, don’t leave it undetected

Let’s start an epidemic quick, and get the world infected!

I Have got it all together!

I Have got it all together!

Just so everybody knows..” I’ve got it all together”… I mean besides the fact, I always have piles of laundry, when one junk pile gets too high, I create junk baskets, my car looks like it is lived in and my keys are usually locked in it. I need a helmet when I open my kitchen cabinets, I debate on whether or not to give my iron to a homeless person( I promise they would find better use for it) I often make two or three trips back inside my house to get what I forgot including my phone which is on my ear or my sunglasses which are in my head! I back into things like mail boxes, scooters and other cars. Hmm… I was kidding, I don’t have it all together! I thank God for his grace , mercy and steadfast love. There was a time when I kept everything “perfect” and I was so occupied by “maintaining” that it was hard to hear Gods voice. I wanted things to be perfect before I had guests over. But think about it, we did not invite God after everything was perfect, we invited him so that everything can be made perfect. So I invite people into my not so perfect life. Come join me for a meal, a cup of coffee or a back porch chat…just don’t open my cabinets and park your car far away from behind my van!!
