Gratitude

Over the past several weeks, I have actually looked forward to going to the mailbox because not a day has passed that I haven’t received at least 1 card.  You all just don’t know how much it has lifted my spirits.  I have been truly amazed by the outporing of love from friends, family and even complete strangers.  God has revealed himself to me through all of you and I am soooo thankful.

God “stepped it up a notch” today.  Get a load of this…I went to the mailbox today and quickly flipped through things and noticed there were 2 different cards.  So, I get into the house, grab the first one (no return address), rip open the envelope, open the card and a $100 bill falls into my lap!!!  And you guessed it…the card was not signed.  I melted into a big puddle right there and offered up thanks to God for providing.   I also immediately thought of Bro. Ray’s challenge to practice random and intentional acts of kindness to go along with our “Fruit of the Spirit” 10 week challenge.  I don’t know if this was from someone in the church or not but if it was…Bro. Ray, people are paying attention and a great big high five to you!!!!  There really are people out there who practice true kindness and I have been on the receiving end of it lately and it blesses my socks off. 

Blessings – K
