Quietude: Taking Time to Be Still
I am resting in my room this morning and thinking about kindness.
How something so simple is often overlooked.
I want to be kind in my ways --kind to my children and my husband. I want them to remember me for being a kind person.
We all fall short in so many ways, but the Lord is kind and gives us grace.
A look, a smile, a kind word.
Do not underestimate their power.
Maybe a hug or a pat on a back.
Makes the world of a difference to someone who feels all alone or discouraged.
Just taking the time to spend it with those that you love.
Asking questions, finding out how their day has been.
Just plain simple caring.
Sitting down and talking around the living room and making yourself available to anyone who joins you.
Maybe heating up some cold food so that someone who came home late at night can have a hot dinner after they have worked the whole day.
Just sitting and caring can change someone's entire day.
Let us also extend that kindness to others outside our home too.
To strangers and those who are different from us.
So that God may be glorified.
And they may see His love through you.
