Kindness ROCKS!

On a rainy November day, in the middle of Wal-Mart, while picking up washing powder and chicken patties that your daughter thinks she can't live without, you should always be kind.  There are so many grumpy people in the world and while sometimes it doesn't help to be kind because they're just in a bad place that day, don't want to be in Wal-Mart any more than you do and don't care to hear anything coming out of anyone's mouth, you should be a good person (Do what is good. Romans 13:3), be the bigger person and be kind because...

One of the lights at the 2010 Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure, aren't they cool?!  Love them!

You can always tell when someone appreciates your kindness, they smile and quite possibly, a conversation might follow - one that makes your day!

"God has chosen you and made you his holy people.  He loves you.  So always do these things:  Show mercy to others, be kind, humble, gentle, and patient.  Get along with each other, and forgive each other."  Colossians 3:12-13

I'm sure God doesn't want you to be trampled on and I must admit that on a really bad day, I am not always, kind, humble, gentle  or  patient but, being kind brings out the best in people.  And you always have to remember, "Be kind for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. " ~Plato
