Exiting my final exam this morning, I walked out into the fresh air and was kissed by the most beautiful ray of sunshine. It was warm and melting. If that wasn't enough to fill my heart with joy, what I heard next nearly made me explode.
"Would you like a free donut as part of our Random Acts of Christmas Kindness Day?"
At Central Ave Church, they kicked off the Christmas season by counting down the 25 days before Christmas by performing Random Acts of Kindness. Once a day until Christmas. They are doing it to help remind people that we are all God's children and we all need blessings and we all deserve a seat at the table.
This is a good tradition to start. Maybe not for Christmas, maybe instead for your birthday or in memory of someone. You pick. You do. The World needs more goodness in the world.
Thank you centralavenuechurch.org for providing me with empty calories and a fullness of love.
