Sharing is Caring!

If any of you would love to be a guest writer on any specific day or take an initiative and write on a dedicated day on this blog, I would love to share it with you. Please send me an email and let me know if you want to do a one time guest post, or become part of a dedicated team that will post faithfully each week with me and make this a truly God inspired project. My email is Stevenkat27@verizondotnet!

In keeping with the theme of this blog, I wanted to share a story I got in an email this morning and wanted to brighten your day with it. I hope you enjoy the effect it provided to Dorothy!

"One Saturday, I got a phone call and the woman on the phone sounded extremely anxious because her electricity wasn't working. I informed her that she had the wrong number and she apologized, and we said goodbye. After I hung up the phone I thought maybe I could help her so I dialed *69 to call her back and found out she was just one town over. When I got to her house, I told her I would help her, but I would not accept any money. Dorothy and Jacob, who were both retired, seemed surprised and said they never met anyone like me. I got the lights working, reset the breakers and re-lit the pilot light to fix the heater. After I was done, they thanked me and tried to give me some money. I told them I wouldn't accept anything, and that the best payment would be to find someone else to help out. They were both incredibly happy that I managed to solve their electrical problems quickly, but I think I was eve happier at the opportunity to help them."

Today's Tip: Offer to help your neighbors out somehow, watering their lawns, taking in their trash or moving some heavy items for them. You can even offer to make them some cookies and drop them off. Make a difference in the life of someone today!


  1. I love it! I think that's wonderful :)

  2. I put an elder families trash cans on the curb every Wednesady afternoon. Our trash pick-up is on a Thursday. I do for others not for the praise or glory, but because I just want to. I have great compassion for the elder and children.


Looking forward to seeing how you made a difference today!
