Don’t give things up, give them out!

I dropped in to see my friend, Kate, this morning. I was so inspired by her family’s plans for Lent that I just have to share them…

Lent is a season when several denominations of the Christian faith acknowledge the ways they have turned away from God in their lives and focus on turning their hearts and minds back toward God.
Lent is often associated with “giving up something”. However, my friend, Kate, and her family have decided to turn their hearts and minds toward God by giving out something.
Kate showed me a grid of 40 Random Acts Of Kindness that her family has committed to complete over the next 40 days.
They kicked off there went season by placing flowers and kind notes on the windshield of strangers car is in the Walmart parking lot. Today, they are practicing holding the door open for others and saying, “after you”.
Kate’s son, Will, was so excited to share his experiences of kindness with me…his love and kindness was poring out of his bright blue eyes and his sweet little voice. I couldn’t help but snatch him up and give him a big hug!

This kind of love and kindness is contagious. I hope you all catch it!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Kate, for sharing your story of #spreadlovingkindness with me.
