  • I just do kind things for others, whether it is buying the person behind me their coffee or babysitting for a friend when they can't find a sitter or stopping in traffic to let someone pull out or cross the street. Really I see it as common courtesy but it doesn't seem to be so common these days.

  • I like to send note cards in the mail (no e-mails) to let a person know that I am thinking about them. Sometimes I will pay for someone's meal in a resturant. I hold doors open for people all the time....I do the things that Kristi mentioned too. Or pick up the phone and give someone a call that you haven't talked to in quite a while. Offer encouragement.
    Hey Kristi....I need a babysitter--wanna help me out? lol

  • Oh, something I forgot to mention: tell people when they are doing a good job. It could be a waitress/waiter, your child's bus driver, your mail only takes a second out of your day and really makes the other person feel appreciated. Blessings!

    I would, but unfortunately I don't think you're local and I can only sit Thursday-Sunday. I have classes M-W. But if you ever move to my aarea and need someone to watch the kids so you can have a date night just give me a holler!

  • I do not have a little light... mine is a fireball! :-)
    We are FULL of His light not just a little one.. just sayin :-)

    I make cards, I write words of encouragement in them and on my facebook and when I am at the cash register and they greet me I respond and ask them how they are.. you would be amazed in how surprised they are when you ask. They see that you actually care!

  • I used to be part of the choir. That was one of my big ways of lighting my candle, but now I try to teach my son to be a good person, and I try to remember to keep a sense of humor, joke about things in a friendly way, care about other people, try to avoid the "glossed over" eye look, and try to really listen. It's hard when i get exhausted, but on days when I pull it off, I will have a big smile on my face.

  • Ladymomtraveler, we had 10 people n church Sunday and no one sang together. lol i can't help but laugh when we sing. if you watched Sister Act with Whoopi Goldberg, well not you with her, her in it, lol that is what we sound like. Maybe she'll come help us. It was so embarrassing at the candle light ceremony. Every church went up front to sing or do an act. You know how movies go were you do something and then another team comes in does it 100 x's better? That's what happened to use. A bigger church did the same song only so so much better. oh well, we put heart into it. lol
