Learning of a single mom who gave birth last week to a baby with complications, today's act of kindness is to send the baby a Valentine and this verse about his heavenly Father's love.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
While email is simple, letter writing is such an encouraging art. Enjoy flipping through the New Testament today and read some of the sincere opening lines of letters of various writers.
We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers. We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 1:2-3
Pump it up! Today's act may be illegal, like leaving something in someone's mailbox. The idea is to leave a Valentine, with an encouraging note at the gas pump for the next person who comes along behind me. Hmmm, maybe I better just leave it on the trash can for whomever empties the trash.
Let's compose the note....Some days when you least expect it someone pops up and says, "Smile, you're on Candid Camera." This is not one of those days! Today is one of those days when some random person wanted to be an encouragement to another anonymous person who God picked out as needing to be reminded of the depth of His love for them. That person is you! Worship Him today!
We love Him because he first loved us. 1 John 4:19
PS. The UPS man was thrilled yesterday with the reverse giving! He handed me a box from Zappos and I gave him a Valentine and a chocolate!
