Last night our family devotions were about kindness, especially kindness amongst family members. Sometimes we are kinder to strangers and acquaintances than our own family members. I hate to think that I am guilty of this, but I know that I am. I know that my family knows that I love them, but I need to show them more than I do. Not only in words, but in actions. As we all know, "Actions speak louder than words!" So, I'm going to challenge you...This week attempt to do seven things (that's one a day) that you would normally not do for a family member to show them your love for them. I'm going to try it, too. I think it will help make our days better and our relationship with family better.
Last night we went to the grocery store (again). I was all excited because I was going to get two weeks' of groceries for a really good deal. You see, our grocery store here sometimes has really good deals on meat. This week (or so I thought) they had pork chops on sale, buy one get one free; also, pork roast, buy one get one free. The pork chops would last us about a week and the pork roasts would last us about another week. Well, I got there and none of that stuff was on sale! I didn't look at the date on the ad I got in the mail! The sale starts Saturday! I was so mad at myself. So, I only got enough food to last us about a week. Anyway...next week I will get enough food for two weeks. Lesson learned...always look at the date on the ad before you make your grocery list and menu!
