Glory to God!
Glory to God in the Highest!
A Glorious Breakfast filled with Morning Glory Muffins!
Kindness is a beautiful quality when someone possesses it and also when we've been the recipient of someone's kindness toward us. You just know it and feel it when someone has been kind to you. It works wonders and perhaps that is one of the reasons that God speaks lovingly of being kind to others. A kind person is always ready to help others and do good. They are friendly, gentle, generous, sympathetic and usually are always showing goodness and generosity through the deeds that they do or the words they speak. Our God is full of grace and mercy and His kindness is unending. The Bible says in I Corinthians 13:4 that love suffers long, and is kind. Jesus also said that we should love those who are not kind to us, difficult for most, but he says we should be kind and, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again, and He promises that our reward shall be great, and that we shall be the children of the Highest: for He is kind unto all, even the unkind. Such a wonderful reminder! He encourages us in Ephesians 4:32 to "Be kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake has forgiven you." When a person is kind there is a sweetness in their presence that lingers long after they are gone. We are better people for the moments and hours that we spend with them. My husband is one of those kind people. He has always been kind to me~always. It's just his nature and he bubbles with kindness.
Over the weekend, and since it's still the beginning of a new year, I have been preparing healthier meals as I stated in my last post. I decided to surprise Steve with Morning Glory Muffins that I found in the LEON cookbook that I mentioned previously. So..... after we finished with our breakfast, he told me he had a surprise for me! We took a short drive west of us to a beautiful little town, Covington, Louisiana, which is north of New Orleans. It is full of beautiful old homes, street after street, where the homes have been restored. We just went for fun, not really planning what we would do. That is the best kind of surprise! I also snapped these two photos above of two beautiful churches that are still used each Sunday!
Life has its way of returning to you much more than you ever give away when you do something kind!!!
I hope you enjoy a day filled with kindness, especially for others!
