Day 2: Love

Thursday, February 14, 2013

It's day 2 of the 40 days of love that I've started from the 40acts blog. If you'd like to join here's the link:

Today assignment is to focus on "clothing" ourselves in love. Too often I'm more concerned with how I look and not how I act. I look in the mirror making sure that I pass the material worlds approval, not realizing that my heart and spirit are the ones that need to feel and look good.

There is a sentence from today's post that says this - "St Paul describes love like a garment; something we put on deliberately." Today I'm going to envision my cloak of love and go the extra mile to make everyone that I encounter feels special some way. Even something simple as just a smiling at a stranger.

So today's goal:
1) Call my parents and really tell my parents that I love them. I'm going to let them know how appreciated they really are and how lucky I am to have them in our lives.
2) Smile at everyone I see.
3) Leave a little something for the mailperson in the mailbox.
4) Make an appointment to give blood.

How will you cloak yourself in "Love" today?

    Great goals! I especially love that you're going to call your parents. I lost my dad nine years ago, and I wish I could call him today.

    But wait, you have a mailperson in your mailbox? Ha ha, sorry, I couldn't pass that up...I know, I have a strange sense of humor.

    Happy Valentine's Day! emoticon
