There are some days where it’s hard to show kindness. And then, something happens to snap you out of it. I like to think God has a way of reminding us from time to time how important it is to be kind to others.
Below is a picture of a card I found in a box of old clothes. It had no purpose there, nor do I know how it got in there. But I do know why it was there...to remember how important it is to show kindness and love to another human being.
The card was from 2 years ago, from a very special friend who was sad to see us leave the church I had been serving. A little over a year later, she passed away. Last summer I had the privilege and honor to officiate her funeral. She paid for our travel expenses, and even bought us tickets to a Tigers game so we could share one last memory before I released her ashes into centerfield.
You never know. Today I needed a reminder. So I’m sharing this card just in case you do too.
