Every now and then, people from our church sends us gifts in the mail (fruit and cheese baskets), make us dinner, or leave anonymous care packages at our front door. Every time this happens, it totally encourages our hearts and lifts our spirits. It’s remarkable how much these acts of thoughtfulness and kindness really help us to keep loving and serving.

We don’t always get to say thank you because we don’t always know who did it. But every time, these acts of thoughtful giving always make our day! These givers have inspired me to go and do likewise. There is such joy in giving –I’ve found it’s one of the quickest ways to to turn down days around!
