How to change the world!

My daughter wanted to watch a movie, she chose Evan Almighty. Cute movie. For those that aren't familiar with the story line. Evan Baxter just got elected to congress. He wants to change the world. Evan has an encounter with God who wants him to build an ark (yes a modern day Noah's Ark) type of story. One of the things God told Evan was that changing the world just took 1 Act of Random Kindness (ARK) at a time.


Since this month our blessing theme is kindness my ears perked up. Made me think maybe I could do something to change the world--well at least the world around me. So I am going to challenge you to do the same thing.


The challenge do one act of random kindness per day. Put a quarter in the meter for someone who's time is just about out. Hold the door open for a struggling mom at the mall. Take cookies over to a neighbor.


Something happens when we show kindness. It not only changes the outlook of the person receiving the act, it changes our outlook as well!


Colossians 3:12--clothe yourself in kindness

The layouts are of the fundraiser at the Scrapbook Expo. I was the coordinator for the baggage check fundraiser. People brought us items to help fill shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. This year our shoeboxes found their way to the Dominican Republic.
