Kind and Compassionate...Lessons from Mama and Daddy

I could probably share my heart more than I usually do on my blog. I try to keep it happy and positive mostly. I have heard it said before that "you are either in a storm, coming out of a storm, or about to go through a storm." That is basically true in many aspects. That being said, I tend to think about the little things in life that can add up to the big things. For instance, if someone is having a hard day, and a complete stranger saw them at the grocery store, then smiled at the other person, I believe that would be a small detail that could make a big difference in someone's day or even life. I was blessed to have wonderful parents that taught Kelly and I to be KIND to people. Be FRIENDLY to others, and try to make them feel SPECIAL. Isn't that what Jesus teaches us, too? Love one another. Basics of life, people, basics of life. I am telling myself this, also. Even if you know someone from work or church, it's important to treat one another like you would want to be treated, or treat them better. This has been on my heart for a little while lately. I guess because I see the drama, negativity, etc. on the news, on social media and other places. The verse I will post tonight is relavent to this post.
Let's just be kind to one another, and remember to love each other like Jesus loves us.
That's my vent. Love you all! XOXO!

Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. Ephesians 4:32
