Week 8: Random Act of Kindness Is A Mark of A True Friend!

Week 8: Random Act of Kindness Is A Mark of A True Friend!
Would you agree or disagree with that statement?

I've discovered something really amazing about that statement.  It can apply to anyone.  That's right anyone can do a R.A.O.K.
for anyone on any given day of the week.
You don't have to wait for a special occasion to show your loved ones or even an acquaintance that they mean more to you than just a passing thought.
By sending a card or letter in the mail you are showing them that you thought of them enough to take action.  
 
Actions Speak Louder Than Words
Taking part in this challenge puts your feet to the fire and makes you put your hand where your mouth is so to speak.  
It's all about Jesus words written over 2000 years ago.
"There is more happiness in giving than there is in receiving"  (Acts 20:35)
"Do to others as you want them to do to you"
(Luke 6:31)
 
Sitting down and taking the time to think of someone and share a part of your world with them through a written note is something they can refer back to over and over again.
I like to make a copy of the letter or card before I send it and keep it in a file.  That way I won't forget what I wrote them and when I sit down to write again I won't repeat myself as we all do without even realizing it.
 
Setting Goals and Achieving Them One Step At A Time
If you don't set goals you will never achieve very much in your life.  Yikes!  that was shocking to read.  But, it's the truth. Think about your routine.  What do you do each day?  If you write down in a journal what you do each day for 30 days and then read it at the end of the month you might be surprised at how boring and dull your life really has gotten.
 
But, if you set goals and work on achieving them one step at a time and keep track of your progress.  You can look back at the end of each month and see what you have accomplished and feel good about it.

 Start with one goal at a time.  For instance, I am working on organizing each room in my house.  I started on this last year and I am still working on it.  I can only do 15 minutes a day due to my Lyme disease and other health issues.
So, I decide which room I want to work on each day and I set the timer for 15 minutes.  When the timer goes off I stop and rest on the couch.  I am expanding this year to get outdoors and weed my flower beds and water the plants each day for 15 minutes.  I love it!

 Make Time for the More Important Things
Believe it or not there are six things that you should be doing every day of the year to be truly happy.  If you make time for these more important things you'll achieve the goals and enjoy a future life that will bring you the greatest happiness that surpasses your wildest dreams.
2.  Read the Bible each day
3.  Share the good news about God's Kingdom each day
4. Provide for your families needs (income)
5.  Keep your house clean and organized
6. Get the required sleep your body needs
