RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS

ME & KAYLA“Become kind to one another.”   (Eph. 4:32)

Meet Kayla!  I met this sweet, young lady today during my walk at the park.  As we were approaching each other, she handed me the tiny, white flower that’s in my hair.  With a smile, she said, “Here.  Take this.”  As I accepted it, I returned her smile and gratefully expressed, “Thank you.  How sweet!  I really appreciate it.”  Then we continued walking in opposite directions.  As we came upon one another again, she said of my flower she’d given me that I had placed in my hair, “It looks good.”

I asked her if she would take a picture with me so I can put it on Facebook and let everyone know about this sweet, young lady I met today who gave me a flower.  I asked her name and told her mine.  Then the other sweet, young lady she was with took our picture.  Again, we went our separate ways and continued our walk.

What Kayla did today simply made my day!  There we were–didn’t know each other–and she extended a gesture of kindness to me–something I was not expecting–out of the blue.  Since we live in a world where people are not always kind, her random act of kindness truly touched my heart.  And especially touching was the fact that someone so young reached out to me, an older person, also one of a different race.  I don’t know who her parents or her family are, but I imagine that they helped to instill in her the kindness that she showed me today.  We also live in a world where people are quick to let others know when they have done something that they don’t like.  However, what about when they do something we do like?  Are we just as quick to tell them we liked what they did?  Food for thought–because sometimes even the smallest, random act of kindness can be just as precious as the huge ones that are given simply out of obligation.

I’ve come to really cherish my walks.  I take advantage of the solitude not only to reflect on God’s awesome creation but also to draw closer to Him as I talk to Him during my journeys.  Also along the way, I stop and take pictures of some of the works of His hands.  When I get home, I go through the pictures and try to find ones I would like to share on my blog.  Today, I got a really nice surprise when I looked at one of them.  You’ll see what I’m talking about in the picture below.  When I snapped the shot, I had no idea what was in the midst of the flower.  COOL!!!  🙂

FLOWER & BEE

Well, thanks for letting me share my thoughts and pictures with you.  Have a wonderful evening!  🙂

From my heart to yours,
