It's great being thought of by someone else. But, what about when it's your turn? Your turn to bless and encourage and share...?
I like this thought; something I found while reading in my devotional time this morning..and was encouraged by it!
I thought I would share it with you, too!
From Barbara Johnson.
"When we do little acts of kindness that make life more bearable for someone else, we are walking in love as the Bible commands us. One way to do this costs only the sum of a postage stamp, a little paper, and ink.
Every one of us has felt the nudge to write someone a letter or a note. Many times we don't follow up on it; we tell ourselves it wouldn't matter anyway. When we think this way, we miss giving and receiving splashes of joy."
How about that? Are you giving and receiving splashes of joy? When was the last time you felt this? When was the last time you spread the love around, like this?
All good questions. Something to think about.
The only real way to have J O Y... is to put Jesus first, Yourself last and Others in between.
Jesus and others and you.
What a wonderful way to spell JOY.
Jesus and others and you,
In the life of each girl and each boy.
J is for Jesus, for he has first place,
O is for others we meet fact to face,
Y is for you in whatever you do,
Put yourself third, and spell JOY!
((this is just another S.S. song I remember from childhood..))
