On my 42nd birthday, funds were exhausted, the day was fully packed, it would be a 'normal' day. Before I could get out of bed, my oldest daughter Joy brought in a Big Birthday Breakfast to me! It was so meaningful to me because I knew she was tired from our non-stop days, and I knew how rising before the household did was not on her list of important things to do in life. =)
Sacrifice, surprise and service ~
these elements combined to bless this mother's heart.
Sacrifice required decision.
Surprise required planning.
Service required action.
What can I decide to do today that will bless someone?
What is my plan for carrying this out?
Will I actually do it or just think about it?
Sacrifice. Surprise. Service.
Decide. Plan. Act.
