Footprints of Christian Love.....

These "Random Act's of Kindness" post, are very difficult for me...

~~ The reason why?  Because it is so easy for me to talk about the good things that others do, but when it comes to sharing "MY" goodness,, the story is hard to tell.   I just don't like giving myself a pat on the back...... ~

If...sharing my story Blesses someone, {anyone}..then I am willing to do my part in posting a RAK .

     I'm joining myfivemen.blogspot.com

It has been said, that "the most fashionable coat we will ever wear is one made of kindness and love."  Well...I suppose that I wore a pretty fashionable coat this week.

Has anyone ever let you down?  Perhaps a friend or just someone that you thought you knew, {better than you do?}
Have you been disappointed with the actions of others?

I have....and I know how it feels to find yourself feeling downhearted by the hoopla of others.

This week....I had the opportunity to totally ignore a situation like this, however.....I chose to give someone another chance.   I gave them a warm smile and kind word.

I looked at this as an opportunity to change the whole picture and to hopefully leave a footprint of my Christian Love, upon their life.   

Living life from the heart is extremely wonderful...

Sounds like you were a light of love to someone.

A wonderful illustration and heartfelt expression of our inside person's reaction to those around us.

Plato is right ~ this life is difficult for us all and we all need help and kindness.

Your RAK this week is wonderful yet very difficult for us to so, since we are hurt or offended by people. We all need a second chance sometimes, maybe a third and maybe a fourth. God does that for us doesn't he, he gives us endless chances to stay in fellowship with him and if we truly repent he not only forgives us but chooses not to remember those events which are forgiven. They are wiped out completely all ready for a new start. Of course we could never manage to do this to that level because we are not divine and do not possess characteristics of absolute love and absolute righteousness (amongst others) but I think your RAK is truly splendid . . . :)

You never know - could be the start of healing and a new direction.

What a gracious thing to do....show the love of God instead of wagging a finger or turning your nose. I hope it made an impression on them. Thank you for sharing....sharing isn't bragging but inspiring each of us to do the same, or 'spur each other on to good works' like the verse says!

I feel the same way about any so-called acts of kindness I may do. I don't want to seek appreciation for them; a pat on the back as you call it. Knowing that I have helped someone is reward enough for me, and whatever I do is just between me and them. If I can go through life providing help where it's needed then I'm a happy man.

You let it begin with you. Good job.

Well said, Shug. What would life be without second chances. I'm sure I've been given one or two, and I do know of others as well. Keep smiling!

Ginny said...

You did good! Yes, people have let me down quite a bit in my life. But I just think that I have let others down from time to time, so this is where we all need forgiveness and grace. None of us is perfect, even if we try really hard. Your picture and quite is so touching.

I struggle with the RAKs, too, Shug... or at least the writing about them. Seems kind of like bragging, doesn't it? Our southern roots showing. But, that said, I have loved doing this and reading about others doing it... gives me pause to focus on kindness. I am a big believer in it... Thank you for sharing. xoxo blessings and hugs ~ tanna

PS it takes a lot of maturity and love to rise above and respond with kindness. Kudos to you, Shug!

Wanda said...

I don't think any of us doing these RAK want praise or recognition...so posting it...feels like we do. I will share again what I did last week, and what Betsy confirmed...(in the mouth of two witnesses) You are inspiring and spurring us all on to good deeds. And to see all the different ways is exciting,

Your RAK this week took real courage and love. An example for all of us.

Love you

I hear you, Shug! You arevery kind to turn the other cheek.

Laurie said...

Smiles, smiles and more smiles!

Gert said...

That was a wonderful thing to do...and I know you feel much better for it. Otherwise the alternative can eat you up inside. And

Bless you my friend,
Gert
