I love love love random acts of kindness. I try and do them as regularly as possible. It makes me happy to be kind. Fiona loves to join in on the anonymous ones or ones with professionals…she’s pretty shy when it comes to strangers individually. 🙂
So, today…I started off by recycling all of our plastic bags. This isn’t our “official” one because I always save every bag and regularly recycle them. I have become a bit of a recycling fanatic…it only goes in the garbage if it has to. But I think that it counts for an unplanned act of kindness…the recipient being the planet Earth.
Next….we FINALLY started decorating!! Thank goodness for Pinterest!
Here are some pics of the decorating madness:
My version (not nearly so elegant, but lovely and beautiful:
Our actual act of “Intentional Crazy Love” was to go through our stuff and donate it. We have been working on this one all week! We definitely have an abundance of stuff that could be given a new home. I love that most everything could be given somewhere. Even stuff not good enough to rehome can be recycled and that is being a good steward of our planet.
Along with each day of Christmas and love, we are reading specific Bible verses. Today’s was John 3:16. The theme was that God loves us…that’s why we love others. We talked about the significance of this verse in our lives. We also read Revelation 22:13. One of the names of God (He has a lot of them!) is Alpha & Omega. He is the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
From our calendar (I will post them again after Christmas):
Saturday, December 1 – Verse: John 3:16 (God loves us!); Revelation 22:13 (Alpha & Omega) Go through toys and closets for stuff to donate. Deliver it!
