Last week I started a new weekly post that from now on every Wednesday will be Random Acts of Kindness Wednesday. I’d love to hear stories of how during the week you’ve gone out of your way to bless someone, help them, or do something out of the ordinary. What I don’t want this to turn into is a “toot your own horn” moment which is why I hesitated in doing this but during my prayer time with God last week I really felt this could be good for all of us.
So, each week stop by here and either leave a comment or if you have a blog, a link as to how you brightened someone’s day that week. Let’s encourage each other to be extra-ordinary!
This week the story comes from my friend, Holly, who emailed this:
“I wanted to respond to your RAOK post. I have been doing this for as long as Ben and I have been married – 3 1/2 years now. Whenever I go grocery shopping, I make a point to talk with my cashier. While we’re ringing up all the stuff, I’ll smile and ask “So how is your morning going?” It is truly amazing the things I have been told within a 5 minute time span. There are a lot of hurting people out there who just need someone to listen. This takes no extra time from me and can really bless someone’s life.
If they have shared a need with me, I’ll tell them that I’ll include them in my prayers. I truly believe that the smallest act of kindness can mean the world to someone who needs a friendly smile and a listening ear. I hope your readers will try this too as it’s a great and easy way to bless someone.”
Thanks, Holly! And now to you – please leave a comment and let us know how you’ve been extra-ordinary this week.
