My Favorite Post of the Week
This post simply touched me to the core. My favorite paragraphs:
“We don’t need to shout out Jesus loves you from a megaphone, in order to shine the light of Christ into the lives of others.
In fact, please DON’T do that!
Sometimes- MOST TIMES- all it takes is a kind word, a thoughtful act, or a simple smile, to make someone’s day.”
Rachel shares a poignant example of how to be the light to others that will melt your heart.
As we move through the Holiday season, I am so inspired now to be a light to others. Will you join me? Please read this article.
