If you’ve read this blog just a few times, you will know that I promote friendship, good relationships, and kindness. My main goal is to be an encouragement and produce a spark of joy to anyone who stops by to read. I had a family and friend filled weekend. From the Friday night birthday gathering to the fellowship chili dinner after our evening service at church, there is one word to describe it. BLESSED! As I was preparing to write this morning, I remembered the long overdue list of ‘friend’ related items that are “put aside till later” and realized what that means. For today, I gathered cards, addresses, stamps, and ‘the list’ – my mission? Walk the talk. Who am I to promote thoughtful care of friends in this blog, and then ignore that same act because I’m persistently ‘out of time’. In Matthew 22:37-39 “Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. ”
It’s Monday and you know what that means. Will you chose the G or the N? You choose MA(N,G)IC. I’m going with MAGIC Monday and on Tuesday (or Wednesday) a few of my friends will know that I thought of them and care about them. How about you? Is there someone who needs to know you care? It’s a pretty easy demonstration – if you carve out just a sliver of time. You can do it!
