compassion and kindness.

 
  
the song above moves me.
I often listen to it on repeat.
 
I feel like it inspires me.
 
so...the other day, my mom and I were discussing the importance of kindness and compassion.
 
how it can truly make a person's day,
to be a source of light in a dark place.
 
I need to work on this.
 
I want to be kind.
compassionate.
understanding.
forgiving.
loving.
 
I want to be an encourager.
a motivator.
 
I want to be more like Jesus.

  2. Amen, friend!

    I actually have a little phrase on my desktop notepad right now ... simply, "LOVE your child like Jesus loves YOU!" It has really helped me a lot with positiveness in my parenting.

    A verse I'm loving right now is Ephesians 4:2 -- "Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love." (NLT) I've been working on applying this virtue, not just with my family and friends, but with people I don't know, as well. I hope it encourages you, as it has me!

I adore hearing from you lovely readers! You brighten my day (that is, if you leave a nice comment). I will try my best to write back to each one of you, but regardless, your comments mean so much.
