YOU NEVER KNOW


You never know when a random act of kindess is just what someone needs to cheer them. I woke up during the night with what I thought was a stomach virus. This morning I still had some symptoms but knew I had an appointment later today that I must keep. My sweet husband drove me to the appointment and I didn't receive the news I was hoping to hear. I told my husband that we were just on another roller coaster ride (like everyone has) and I wouldn't worry. That would be a miracle for me! I never want to say no to people or disappoint them, but some times things are out of our control. My mind was in fast motion with me trying to work things out when someone knocked on my door. My neighbor (who is the closest relative I have on my side of family.....and like a sister) was there with this BEAUTIFUL orchid. The blooms are huge. She brought it for no reason. You never know when a kind act will cheer someone. We spent some time talking and her visit helped turn my "worries" into laughter. I need a reminder every day of Proverbs 3:5..."Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding."
Make an effort to do something for someone each day....even if it is just a kind word.
