Today is Thursday, April 7th, 2011; Karen's Korner #2037

Jim and I were gone from home for one Sunday. When we travel, quite often we jump off main interstates and look to see if we can find a church for worship. If we come into towns too early, we have no desire to wait more than an hour for a church service to begin.
On Sunday, March 27, we drove along until we traveled near a country Baptist Church with fifteen minutes before their 11 a.m. worship. Jim parked the car; I ventured in first, where I learned we were pretty fair-skinned in comparison (aka African-American church). Many service things were different in the 'how', but the 'Who' remained the same.
Below is something taken from their service's bulletin for the day:
Just for Today: at a stranger
..listen to someone's heart
..drop a coin where some child can find it
..learn something new, then teach it to someone
..tell someone you're thinking of them
..hug a loved one
..don't hold a grudge
..don't be afraid to say "I'm sorry"
..look a child in the eye and tell them how great they are
..don't kill the spider in your house, he's just lost so show him the way out
..look beyond the face of person into their heart
..make a promise, and keep it someone, for no other reason than to just say 'hi' kindness to an animal
..stand up for what you believe in
..smell the rain, fell the breeze, listen to the wind
..use all your senses to their fullest
..cherish all your TODAYS!
