I am so encouraged right now. Yes, there are global warming worries, bullying, war, poverty, and the list truly is unending. However, lately I’ve been seeing a lot more positive challenges and uplifting encouragements. One of these is the 100 happy days challenge in which you choose one item/moment/piece of your day to be grateful for each day for 100 days. Perspective is everything. Gratitude is healthy. http://100happydays.com/
It’s that time of year again! It is Lent. And for many, this means nothing. For some, it means much. Make me a promise? Read this post through. And then judge. Because I think we all have something to learn from some of the ideas.I am once again completing “40acts” which challenges me to complete a generous act every day alongside a devotion. So far I have done such things as take a talent & blessing inventory to see what skills I can best use to help others. I also left a thank you note for the postman to encourage his/her day, for example. I love these challenges because they help me to focus my thoughts around others, challenge me to act outside of my comfort zone, and put my beliefs into action. And we all know, when we give, we receive so much more. I feel so blessed through many of these challenges. I want to be a model of Jesus. http://www.40acts.org.uk/
So, I hope that I am making a change one moment, one day at a time. It can’t start on a global level. It starts with YOU & ME.
