Be Kind

Prayer Journal For September

  The title of my prayer journal this month is "Be  Kind".

   I have even spotted certain signs along the road  that remind one to practice this virtue.

    What an appropriate message for the present time we are living.


 Like tiny seeds that started these morning glories traveling through out the garden; so it is with a small seed of kindness sown into someone's life.


It can grow and encompass others.  







Possibly even reaching farther afield than where one lives.








 Just maybe one kind act could make a difference in our community, our nation, and our world.


My prayer is that each of you will encounter a bit of kindness this week and  pass it on.

Hugs

Debbie

  4. That would be a positive way to start the week for sure. Just a little kindness can mean so much in the life of a person we encounter. Have a wonderful week, and I hope many bits of kindness come your way!

  5. I love the message of your post! I've seen a small "Be Kind" sign along I-70 here in Maryland. It probably goes unnoticed because it is so small and by itself. People are speeding by at 65 mph. It is a metaphor for our times that the pandemic is attempting to correct, don't you think.

    I have wild morning glories in my yard, too, only mine are light blue. Aren't they wonderful! I love your painting and calligraphy--your art is always inspiring to me. ❤️

  9. Your drawings are so pretty. You are so right about being kind. Can you even imagine what a different world this would be if everyone was kind. A smile or kind word just might change someone's bad day.

  13. If only the world showed more kindness and understanding, it would be a much better place. I really like your kindness journal, Debbie. And how wonderful that you got to touch the butterfly as it was fluttering by. They fly about so quickly, and it's hard to even get a close look at them. This is a lovely post and a gentle reminder to us all, thank you. And the comment you shared on my post today was very special, indeed. : )

  17. So it is or better it should be, it is in all of us to make our existence happier and more bearable, to enjoy everything we have at our disposal, the simplest and most beautiful things.
    Happy weekend
    Regards.

  18. Beautiful post, dear Debbie. I feel blessed as I am surrounded by kindness each day. It comes in little ways, a warm smile thru a plastic shield at the bank drive through, my children phoning every day to make sure we are well. Offers of help from so many if needed and the love of our Lord thru the scriptures. If I never put on the TV then the world would stay kind. But we need to know about the unkindness to pray for it to end.
    sending warm and caring blessings to you both, dear Debbie.
    Hope the family is keeping safe.
