Lend A Helping Hand....
I'm reading a book called "101 Ways to Simplify Your Life, by Candy Paull.
It has some good advice. I have skimmed it before, but since Christmas time is a reflective time of year, I wanted to see if I could apply what she says. One of them is to Lend a Helping Hand. To a neighbor, a friend, a co-worker, a child, a relative.. Seek out someone to help everyday. Just the simplest things can make someones day better..The law of sowing and reaping says that you will receive what you are willing to give. Don't be shy about asking someone if they need help. It doesn't have to be monetary help.. Not just at Christmas time, but all through the year.
"Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ" Galatians 6:2 NV.
I hope all of you had a good Thanksgiving. we did...although there was turkey and football everywhere I went..lol
I was tired of turkey by Friday night...and still had one more family gathering to go to.... My family was ready for pizza by Monday.....
Tonight, we are going to the Christmas Parade. I hope it's not raining. It looks like it might be clearing up. I can handle clear and cold... We'll bring blankets and sit outside in front of one of our friends house. They live on Main Street and they have an Open house for their friends every Christmas Parade night...We can go in and get warm , and have goodies and Hot cocoa or cider and coffee... then we go back outside on the porch and watch the parade pass.. It's fun , as long as you are bundled up..
I hope all of you are getting in the Christmas mood. I sure am..
Bunches of hugs....
