The Smallest Blessings Thursday!




Kindness

1. (n.) The state or quality of being kind, in any of its various senses; manifestation of kind feeling or disposition beneficence. 2. (n.) A kind act; an act of good will; as, to do a great kindness.

Noah Webster's New International Dictionary of the English Language

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today I was thinking about what I'm thankful to God for and it's kindness. I have been the recipient of kindness by family, friends both offline and online and by strangers. The kindness of another person is something that is beautiful, it makes your heart glad, you feel special, thought of, cared for, appreciated, loved and so much more. Kindness is contagious, it spreads its wings and flies, touching the hearts and lives of all who are open to receive it and sometimes it's given back and or passed on to another. The kindness of another can soften a hardened heart, it can bring healing and hope. It doesn't have to be anything big, it can be as simple as a smile. Kindness doesn't have to cost a cent but I can tell you that it is a gift that is precious and one to be treasured. Lets spread some kindness to a hurting world you just never know how much impact that your kindness can have on another, it could save a life. It's no wonder kindness is a gift from God.

Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
Colossians 3:12

Thank you for your kindness, it has blessed my heart and lifted my spirits more than you know.
May you be a recipient of kindness each and everyday
:)
