Thoughts for the month:
Happy New Year!
As we begin this new year, I hope everyone takes some time this month to contemplate how they want this year to look.
For me personally, I believe God has led me to choose the word "kindness" for the year. I choose this to be the one thing that I will reflect on during this season of new beginnings, and focus on how I can be a little kinder, and inspire kindness.
How can kindness shine from everything we do? What are some things we can do in our daily life to engender kindness? How can we, as it says in Ephesians chapter 4, verse 32, be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ has forgiven us? How can we encourage others with our words and actions?
I'm going to finish this month's thought off with a quote to help your reflections:
“I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you'll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you'll make something that didn't exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and to like in return. And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will always be kind.”
