Day 4: Today was another one of those days that hasn’t gone as planned. I continued being a “coupon fairy” at every store I visited today. I love getting a great deal and I definitely scored some today! But I was the recipient of another coupon fairy and it totally blessed me!
It was a super busy evening and all day I had been looking for opportunities for a random act. My nephew was over hanging out while his momma was working, so we decided to go to the National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation movie since it was dollar night. Perfect opportunity!! We got to bless the people behind us by buying their tickets! It didn’t cost a lot. but her whole face lit up when I handed her the tickets.
The thing that I like about this is that sometimes I think about doing these things but I get nervous or whatever, lately it’s been a feeling of being free to give. The focus has been on just finding ways to bless others…and just show them that someone cares about them. I didn’t hesitate at all tonight and that encourages me. It’s becoming easier and easier to act on my faith daily.
Today’s verses were from John chapter 1, verses 29 and 34-37. The theme was learning that we needed Jesus’ sacrifice for us. We also read Isaiah 9:6. We learned that one of God’s name is Everlasting Father.
From our calendar (I will post them again after Christmas): Tuesday, December 4 – Verse: John 1:29, 34-37 (We needed Jesus’ sacrifice); Isaiah 9:6 (the Everlasting Father). Buy movie tickets for the people behind us.
