Small Deeds

(My son posted this yesterday on his Facebook after he received something at work. It strikes me how easy it is to make someone’s day a little brighter, especially this time of year. It has been an encouragement for me to seek for opportunities of small acts of kindness. We serve a God who can use these seemingly insignificant deeds disproportionately to their size and our ability.)

To the little girl who gave me this:

I don’t know who you are, and you will probably never read this, but i was having an absolute horrible day at work. It was busy, stressful, and hard. But when you gave me this at my cash register it made me so happy. It completely changed my attitude, and made my day (possibly my week). So thank you. Its hanging on my door now.

About Heidi Viars

“If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth ...” ― C.S. Lewis ..... In my pursuit of self, I found utter darkness. In my pursuit of truth, I found Jesus, who dispelled the darkness by His forgiveness. Now I follow Him and try to understand Him better. I am a wife, mother of 6, blogger and love taking photographs of sunrises.

    This post is a wonderful reminder that small acts of kindness can have a big impact. The picture of the reindeer is adorable and made me smile.

    What a delightful, encouraging story. Reminds me of a quote I love: “With every deed you are sowing a seed, though the harvest you may not see” — Ella Wheeler Wilcox. (Someday we WILL see that harvest!)

    Such a great reminder to do those small, kind deeds…and to recognize them when we’re the lucky recipient! Love it.
