In 2020 – Make Love Visible

Whoa. That’s good. See if you don’t think so too, as you ponder these words.

“As the world fights to figure everything out, I’ll be holding doors for strangers, letting people cut in front of me in traffic, saying good morning, keeping babies entertained in grocery lines, stopping to talk to someone who is lonely, tipping generously,  sharing food, giving children a thumbs-up, being patient with sales clerks, smiling at passersby, and buying a stranger a cup of coffee.

“WHY? Because I will not stand idly by and live in a world where love is invisible. Join me in showing kindness, understanding, and judging less. Be kind to a stranger, give grace to friends who are having a bad day, be forgiving with yourself – today and every day.

BE the change, and start TODAY and never stop.”

Yes! That’s how I felt when I read these words from friend, Lawrence M Drake II’s Facebook post. He thanks Nancy Campbell and Brian Lacey for these words, and I thank them too.

These words inspire me, motivate me. I want to join Larry, who wrote, “I stand by these words.” I want to stand by these words too.

They are so Jesus-like.

What a way to start a new year, a new day, a new you. It’s a fitting way to inhale grace and exhale gratitude. Happy New Year!

  1. So very true, I try to smile, help others, say Hello and hopefully let Jesus shine thru me. A friendly Good Morning will make the day for someone.
