His Servants Update . . . 

Ephesians 2:10       "For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."

Random Acts of Kindness. Where and when did this start?

 

            It started in the US in 1982 when a woman wrote on a place-mat, "Practice random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty." She wrote it in response to the phrase, "Random acts of violence and senseless acts of cruelty." Regretfully since then, the senseless violence in our Country and around the world has not stopped. But, random acts of kindness and beauty has increased world wide. We all know that sometimes the simplest of things can be so uplifting!

            During this past exceptionally tough winter, many of you did practice random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty that involved a bit more... Shoveling walkways, driveways and roofs, providing transportation, meals, digging out cars, and checking on others to make sure they didn't need anything are just some of the examples.

We are Blessed to serve. Thank you and God Bless.  Ali Coulter  (new email:  jackj.alic@gmail.com)
