thank you for sharing. I know what you mean when you do some act of kindness then fear sets in and the Devil tries to make you think the people will be offended because you mention God. I have found when God places something on your heart to do it has a good out come. I also have noticed it is something that you feel might be silly or scary to do. But if God places it on your heart to do you will get a blessing for doing it.

Thanks, Suzi, for sharing this encouraging story. Just little acts of showing GOD's love each day speak volumes to those around us, whether they are having trying times or not. Glad you copied it for us! emoticon Nellie

We should all try to spread love every day not just on Valentine's Day. Even if we only smile when we meet people on the street and in stores. Great thought you shared! emoticon

Happy Valentines day

I came across this blog and instead of writing the whole story in my words I copied it as it really made me feel that there is more to Valentines then me getting my darling husband to treat me.

So here goes:

It is Valentine's Day. Ok, I will own it.

I almost forgot, except that the kind couple that I live with gave me a card and a heart mug and tea. To me tea = love. I felt loved.

I came to work thinking about the Peanuts Valentine's Day show with Charlie Brown and homemade valentines. I shared my ginger lemon Valentine's tea with the fellow sicklings at work. That shared the love, but I thought I needed to do more.

Then I talked to this guy who has to be the most discouraged person I know. I work with a lot of discouraged people because it is temporary work and people are looking for jobs. I wondered if he had ever gotten a valentine's card. Then God gave me the idea to write him one myself. I tore off a piece of notepad paper. I drew a big heart. I said:

God wants you to know that He loves you and has a plan for your life. Don't give up! You are a kind and thoughtful person. You are wonderful and valuable!
One the front I wrote: "Happy Valentine's Day :)" and I left it on his desk when he went to the bathroom.

I knew this was the right thing, but then fear set in. 'What if he gets mad? What if I should not have written God? What if I get accused of trying to convert people at work?' Then he came back from the bathroom. He read my note. I did not sign it, but he knew it was from me. He approached my desk. He said, "I'm assuming this was from you." I nodded. Then he said with a smile and enthusiasm, "Thanks a lot!"

Hooray! Mission encouragement accomplished!

What a wonderful thing to do when others need encouragement more then you might. Today lets spread the love.

Be happy and be blessed

Love Suzi
