Each week I will share with you how I tried to bless someone, and I would love for you to share with me as well! Let's help keep each other accountable! :)
I started this challenge myself, last week...so here's what I have to date:
Week 1~September 2014
The Lord has blessed me with an incredible mom, mother-in-law (I know I'm blessed...I've heard "those stories!" lol), and Mimi (grandma)....these wonderful ladies are always there for us and support us in every endeavor of our lives. Last week I was in my seasonal wreath-making-mood, and I decided to make them fall wreaths to just show them I love them. I got to do something I love (www.thepeasantprincess.com) and I got to say "I love you" all at the same time! How fun and awesome is that! Check out their fall wreaths:
Week 2~September 2014
Anyways, back to the point, I often think of Dave when I'm making dinner because he has no one to cook for him and I always wonder what he's eating and if he can cook....lol To make a long story short, I packed up a bowl of soup for him, made some streusel muffin type things, wrapped a fall ribbon and leaves around them, and we delivered them to him. He's the cutest thing, "Oh, well thank you. You guys are just too good to me." It warmed my heart and hopefully his as well. We want to show him that we care about him! All in all, the "project" probably took me a little over an hour, but what an investment of time because it was for a person that God loves. What a better way to spend my time then hanging out on my couch watching HGTV which is probably what I would've been doing!
To conclude, it's all about relationships. All that matters in life is people. Who cares how big your house was if you never opened it up to others? Or how nice your car was if you never used it to visit someone in need? The world around us is constantly telling us to be selfish and think of ourselves only, but it's so much more fun to show love to others. In the words of Caylie Grace, "It makes me happy." (insert big grin) So will you join me on this journey? Get your kids, your hubby, your friends involved and go out and bless someone's day!
Don't forget to let me know that you are joining me on this adventure~I can't wait to hear your ideas...maybe they will inspire me for one of my future weeks!
Come enjoy the journey with me~
