Fun Monday...Good deed. Just be who we are and open handed with our talents


This week’s Fun Monday is being hosted by
Nikki, and she has challenged us to do a good deed.

I am not looking for a story of when you have offered your help in the past, I actually want you in the next two weeks to go out and help someone. Go visit a nursing home, cook dinner for someone sick or with a new baby, donate to a charity or even send just a “thinking of you card” to someone who needs it. It doesn’t matter what your good deed is, or how great it is. It just needs to help someone.

Well today it was me who seemed to be the recipient. I walked into the clinic and there was Dash's Therapist walking down the hall right towards me! I smiled and lovingly pointed at her and said" you....I need that report that you were going to send me..." she got to task she was on her way to record when I bumped into her. So she said she would get the report post haist and fax it over to the school. I then went up to second floor phyc. to see if I could get the other records that The wonderful psychiatrist was going to send for. I signed every release I could think to need, she was so kind to get for me(at no cost) the other office (one of the kids providers wanted to charge me $40. a report x2 kids and several reports!) She saved me big! Her secretary tapped on the door to see if she was busy... Opened the door and there was the Speech therapist talking to her to get Dash's file from her. The S.T. took all the papers and copied them all for me!!!!! I left with all of in IN HAND!

I am a see'er and I kept seeing myself hand the Phyc. a lanyard that had what looked like a world globe from space, and I kept thinking "global" so I waited until we were alone and told her so and gave it to her. She was so moved and just surprised and very moved by the gift. It's the simple ways we each just walk it out in who we are.

It looks as if both of your small deeds went a long way! It's the little things that go a long way. Great job.

No good deed goes unnoticed!

I would love to see photos of your lanyards, they sound beautiful.

Glad you are feeling better.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
