Hi Angela! Tuesday mornings (early) with you is my favorite read of the week! I wanted to share something that shows how small an act of love can be to make others smile! All my life I’ve been taught to open the door for a lady, a veteran, an officer, almost everyone! 1st Corinthians 13:1 says one of the virtues of love is that it is kind! Well, as me and my wife we’re traveling Saturday and stopped to get a bite to eat, a young couple saw us getting out of our car. He hurriedly ran to the door to open it for my wife and me. I said thank you so much and they told us to have a great day ! I have NEVER in my whole life had anyone open a door for me and I had the most amazing day ever because I ran into a little kindness in this world! I didn’t know opening a door for someone would make them feel good! Keep writing always!!!! Michael
This morning, as I reached for my FTG book (I always save it for last because it’s my favorite) I had an inspiration. It probably came to me from one of my other books, but I recognized it as ‘important’ because of FTG: We talk about love as coming from the heart. Of course, we know that emotions don’t emanate from a particular organ, but isn’t it interesting how that’s the region of the body where we feel love? Whereas, if we are busy resenting someone, we are “in our heads”. It’s cool how we can actually feel certain emotions in certain areas of the body. If we could learn to pay more attention to where we felt certain emotions, we may be better able to recognize them and determine mindful courses of action. Kelly
