Today, apparently, is National Random Acts of Kindness Day. A kindness I love giving and receiving is encouragement. It means SO MUCH when people take the time to encourage me and let me know they are there for me.
Over February 14th, a number of older people from church gave me gifts and cards, making it easier to be both single and far away from my family on that specific. :)
"Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing." 1 Thessalonians 5:11 (NIV)
"“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing."" John 15:5 (NIV). Read the full chapter here.
It's so crazy. Really, it's so crazy to believe that we can do NOTHING OF VALUE without our Savior. It's so easy to forget that by ourselves, we cannot bear any fruit whatsoever. But with Christ - oh, the wonders of what can happen when we remain in Christ!
