This is when I find blessings in the weeks when things are especially stressful. Sometimes, the community, the Body of Christ, rises to the challenge to help me out. Like Monday night when one of the guys from my husband's youth group played with Kokomo Jo on the playground at the softball park while I feverishly wrote on my phone. Yes. Sometimes you write on any platform you can find. Or when, my Admin. Assistant baked my lunch for me in the toaster oven so I could have a warm lunch while I wrote over my break.
It got me to thinking...how are we aware of how we can bless other's lives? Do we look for opportunities to make someone smile, give them some spare time, take a burden off their hands for even a moment?
I want to be on the lookout this week. To serve, if even in a small way.
How about you? What are your thoughts on receiving or giving in community service?
