A New Meme for Me - - Random Act of Kindness

This meme is designed for Mondays and I know this is Tuesday. So what, I am a day late. But in my defense, I did just find this. And it is way too good to pass up!! While I was over at Shannon's site entering everyone's giveaway, I ran across Jenmomof4's site. And I am a sucker for memes.

The idea of this meme is to spread random acts of kindness. By posting and spreading the word, you encourage others to do the same and we can all make this world a little better.

Last week we had VBS at our church. We had a children's minister come in for it that is a professional clown but with an unbelievable testimony!! If I go into many details, this will quickly turn into a chapter book. There's a lady at my church that works as an after school activities director in the projects. She brought five kids with her the first night and by the end, we were sending out the passenger van/bus and I think she had fifteen or so. Long story short, this was an awesome VBS watching how God touched these kids' lives (as well as all the other kids that attended too from our church and surrounding neighborhood). The lady told me a little about some of these kids' stories and it is just heartbreaking. At the close of VBS the ministering clown (who gave his own testimony the last night - in a nutshell, he grew up in a very abusive family and both his mother and father tried to kill him more than once but he was saved at 25 yrs old) said that he was offering the CD of the skits and music. One of the kids from the bus asked if they were free, they are $5. You could see those poor little faces just fall as hope was lost for them getting one. God provided a way for me to financially help make sure these kids get a cd yesterday so when I go to church tonight, I am going to pay for some of those cd's for the kids. There were a total of twenty one people getting saved during this VBS - awesome!!

Let's all try to do a litte random act of kindness. Although this week, mine was monetary, most of the time it won't be. As a family, we try to do some of this anyway but participating in this meme will make us more accountable and more actively looking for ways to spread random acts of kindness.

I didn't see a guest book so I'm writing to you here!

Thank you for entering my give-away. That was a cute story about the Red Wings fans. Sports fans have some great traditions when it comes to their teams.
The pictures on my site are of the Carolina Hurricanes and we are just as crazy about them!

I see you lived in North Carolina at one time...what area?
