October is pastor appreciation month, so yesterday in Sunday School, we had a tea party for our pastor’s wife.
One of the things brought out in the small devotional that was given, was that we really need to be grateful for others around us.
Grateful, thankful and encouraging.
Are you thankful for the people in your life?
Do you encourage those around you?
Do you let the special people know just how special they are to you? how happy you are that they are in your life?
How often do you encourage someone?
How often do you let others know you care?
Take time to let them know.
Send a card, send a wee giftie, tell them verbally, give a hug, but do something.
It will bless them, but it will also bless you in return.
Then continue to do it, because those in our lives need to know we care. Once just isn’t enough.
PS. I made some Orange muffins for the tea. Several ladies were asking for the recipe.
I got the recipe from here. I love them because they are a one bowl muffin, and you don’t even need to get out a mixer.
~~Ok, ok, ok…I got out my little hand mixer, because I’m a princess in hiding, and I didn’t want to have to put out the effort of creaming the butter and sugar with a wooden spoon. I have done it before with the wooden spoon, but…have I mentioned I’m lazy?
