Day #11 in the A-Z series of “What Makes Me Happy?”
This picture tells all. Notice the word on her shirt behind the heart. It says, “Volunteer.” A big heart full of love reaches out to help others, exudes kindness, and makes the world a better place.
When you’re tempted to be surley
In response to evil – speak your mind –
Remember you were taught quite early
Always to be kind.
When you’re tempted to lash back
At some person mean and rude,
Remember repercussions of attack
Return for whatever you exude.
Kindness is the only way
To be happy in your soul;
So in everything you do and say,
Let only kindness be your goal.
People around the world are happier
when they reach out to help others.
Whatever motivates you to be kinder, gentler,
think on these things.
For me, my daily devotional time upstairs in my sanctuary
sets my heart on the right path as I study His Word
and learn of His Ways.
Isaiah 63:7a – “I will tell of the kindnesses of the Lord…”
and let His examples lead me.
What “K” word makes you happy? And what act of kindness are you planning today? Think about it!
