Isn't this little duck cute? I had to share him because he is saying what I'm thinking! LOL
I can't think of a more calming place to be than the beach. Just the sound of the wind, waves, and gulls is enough to put you to sleep day or night.
I have to tell you that this might not have had a ripple effect, but it made 4 people happy. I was in Maria's Greenhouse and overheard a 3 year old and his grandpa as they stood at the fountain. The 3 year old was asking grandpa if he had a penny for the fountain. Grandpa didn't so he asked Grandma. She didn't either, so grandpa took a penny out of the fountain so he could throw it back in.
I took 3 pennies from my wallet and walked over to the grandfather and asked if I could give them to his grandson. He said, "Yes, and thank you." The little boy was so thrilled that he MISSED the fountain with a penny! LOL His grandpa laughingly asked, "How could you miss the fountain, you are closer to it than I am? Anyway, it was such a little thing, but to those 3 people it was a wonderful thing.
A small act of kindness when we can, is all we need to make our world around us, a better place.
Do you know how I felt the rest of the day? I was light-hearted and smiled! I need to continue to be aware of things around me.
What God wants us to do is to carry on and look to Him and continue to stay connected through Bible reading, friends and church. While the situation hasn't changed, your attitude and your mind will continue to be relying on God for each step you take.
This is the card I made for Ben and Rachel's thank you notes for this month.
I remember distinctly saying, "Mom, I'm not here to judge anyone." "That is for God alone to do." I remember her looking at me and being quiet. I know she was thinking about what I said.
I wanted her to know that just because I was a Christian, didn't mean I felt I was better than her or my brother.
Blessing of the Day: Sarah came to visit tonight and look what she brought me. She is so sweet. The fact that she came tonight was funny because we had two pies from Baker's Square here. She knows we do Bible Study on Tuesdays and have goodies. It's like she smelled that it was here! She fortunately took some home. Less for Tim and I to be tempted with.
We were able to pray for the 17 year old and her family.
Thank you for stopping by.
