It's Friday...so...Just For Fun:
Thank you to the talented Bill Watterson! As I try to live life with a Rosie Outlook, this cartoon just cracked me up!
Hubby said he didn't get it.... hee hee
I also worked on my May Quests the last two days:
Pray for Someone
Yesterday I prayed for Sister. She has a demanding career that she loves, but it can be stressful at times. She supports her loving husband who also has a demanding career. Their days can be long, but rewarding. She is a loving and supportive mother of two twentysomethings.
Sister's days are busy, but she is happy doing what she loves to do - making a difference in the lives of her family and students. So Thursday, I spent the day praying for her as finishes up this school year, takes a little break, and then begins preparations for the next school year.
Today, I spent the day in prayer for a couple that are very dear to me. They have a deep desire to start a family. It has been a long journey for them. There have been disappointments and heartache. My heart is with them every day as they wait on God to fulfill the desires of their hearts. I prayed for God to sustain them until His plan for their family is revealed.
Do A Good Deed
In the last couple days, I have had the opportunity to leave a tip for someone who did a service for me. Having spent my college days waiting tables at Aunt and Uncle's restaurant, I know how hard people in service jobs work. I also know how important tips are to people in those jobs.
It was my pleasure to have an opportunity to "over tip" a bit with a couple people. Yes, they did an great job, and certainly earned a tip, but it was fun to leave just a little bit more than expected.
Even though it's been a very long time since I waited tables, I remember some of the times I got an extra tip. It was a blessing to me. Many years later, I am now in a position where sometimes I can do that for someone else. I guess you can call that paying it forward.
Another little deed I've been working on is to smile at strangers. I am trying to slow down...take a little time to really take in the people around me when I am out and about. I'm making a better effort to make eye contact and smile. I want the people around me...whether I know them or not...to feel they matter. Because...people do matter.
In fact YOU, dear reader matter to me. So...if you have a prayer request, please feel free to contact me, and I will pray for you!
