Being & Building Followers & Friends of Jesus
I'm a fan of Pinterest. It's interesting, and challenging, addictive, and often, even inspiring. Last night, a posting explained how a mom had led her three daughters in a new approach to Advent last year by creating 25 ideas for Random Acts of Christmas Kindness. Each was put into a brown paper lunchbag and the girls participated each day in one of the random acts of kindness . . . from taping a card and a quarter on a parking meter to surprising their teachers with a favorite beverage from Starbucks. Each act was accompanied by a card that focused on the joy of celebrating the birth of Christ.
I also have friends who have faithfully posted daily five things they are thankful for. No repeats are allowed. They've found that it reminds them of how great God's blessings are.
Thanksgiving and Christmas can easily become overwhelming . . . too much to do in too little time . . . and God's blessings overlooked along the way. So what do you (and your family/friends/church) do to make sure the blessings are not missed?
Maybe by sharing, we can inspire each other through the next weeks!
