A couple of weeks ago, our pastor preached a sermon about Solomon and suggested that we read a chapter in the book of Proverbs every day during the month of December I thought that sounded like a wonderful idea, but have had some trouble following through.
This morning, I got caught back up, and I am so glad that I did. Solomon's words are so applicable today. We are so blessed to have available to us the wisdom that he was given by God. Wisdom that I think he learned the hard way. If you know anything about his life-that man searched for fun in all the wrong places!
I was especially touched by these words in Proverbs 12 from The Message........
"The world of the generous gets larger and larger; the world of the stingy gets smaller and smaller."
"The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed; those who help others are helped."
My friend Debbie made or embellished a pair of mittens for all our mentors for our party last week. Aren't they cute?
Just in case you haven't looked at the calendar, today is 12-12-12. Someone on Facebook suggested doing 12 Random Acts of Kindness today.
I like this idea!
This date won't roll around again in our lifetimes, so let's make it special. Want to join me?
If I get ambitious and all tech-y, I might even put up a linky party so we can share our posts if you want to blog about the experience.
