Kindness

Linking with Charlotte at Spiritual Sunday and Laura at Faith Filled Friday

"Three things in human life are important: the first to be kind, the second to be kind and the third to be kind." Henry James.  

I don't think there's anything in this world that can trump kindness. I went to get my hair cut the other day. There was a new lady...she wasn't the best in cutting hair but she had something...a way about her.....an incredible kindness

I left there feeling that she had given me something so special. In the twenty or thirty minutes I spent with her....she made me feel as if I were the most important person that had walked in the door that day. Her kindness overwhelmed me....made me want to get out there and do the same to everyone I came across

Kindness...it's real...it's tangible. I want to show that kind of kindness to people in my world. I want to.....

Set the world on fire...

Kindness begets kindness. That is what this world need. Inspiring words and beautiful song. Bless your heart Nikki. And thanks for your kindness!

That is a great song!

Spending 30 minutes with overwhelming kindness sounds like a beautiful thing.

Nikki, this warmed my heart. It's so true. Kindness matters. Even in the little things. Perhaps more than we realize. As always, thanks so much for writing and inspiring us all. Oh btw, love the pic. I just love Anne of Green Gables. Have a wonderful weekend :)

I saw that photo and right away I knew that was Ann of Green Gable and her kindred spirit! I loved that show and always wanted a kindred spirit.

It's funny that we spot it right away because it's not too common, isn't it?

Kindness costs nothing and yet someone feels that you have given them the world. So important and can make all the difference in someone's life. Smiles.

Being thoughtful and kind to those that cross our path daily is a way of living that keeps giving long after the kind thoughts, words, and actions have taken place. It only takes a small effort to give a little kindness, and the joy you send out never leaves you! :)

Blessings and love Nikki for Christmas joy and a New Year of giving away some kindness!

You are setting the world on fire...You reach out with kindness to those hurting - telling your story, giving HOPE! Telling what Jesus did in your life and what He'll do in our life too! Your kindness is contagious!! Keep your light alive...
Merry Christmas sister!
Love
Jul

More kindness through me, too, Lord. Thank you for your kindness that leads us to repentance.
Thank you for sharing your encounter with kindness. Blessings to you.

Yes, we certainly could use more kindness in the world. May we each always do our best to be kind to others and make a difference.
