A Random Act for A Pizza Delivery Person

What is more special, giving someone something they expect or to give the unexpected.  Many workers live mostly on their tips.  Servers and delivery drivers are a few that really count on their tips to suppliment their income.  This video shows a group of people (this group just happens to be a church group) that decided they wanted to share their good fortunes by doing a good deed for an unexpecting person.  So… they ordered a pizza.  Just one pizza.  They had been learning about being generous. So they decided to show their generosity they took up a special offering.  Her tip was $9 but they have a gift for her of $1046.00 to just help her with her life.  Nothing expected, nothing required. Just a gift.  Thank you Sycamore Creek Church in Pickerington Ohio, for wrapped up a monthly missions emphasis on “Random Acts of Kindness,” by surprising an unsuspecting pizza delivery driver. What a wonderful unexpected gift to a stranger.  What could you do to surprise a stranger with a random act of kindness?  It doesn’t have to be something as big as this example but it could be something as simple as a smile.  Think about it.  You can make a difference.

Have a GREAT day…by making it a great day for someone else!!!

The Heart Never Forgets

Here is a beautiful story of  Melvyn Amrine.  Melvyn has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s three years ago.  For his wife, Doris, it has been hard to watch.  Sometimes Melvyn needs to be reminded of his past and how thing were and are.  This past May a very special thing happened that reminded Doris that her husband is still here.  You see, Melvyn went missing one day.  He had walked away from the family house and Doris didn’t know where he went.  She called the police for help to find him.  When the police found Melvyn two miles from his house, he insisted that he knew where he was going and that he needed to get flowers. He was a man on a mission.  This was the day before Mother’s Day and Melvyn always bought his wife flowers for Mother’s Day every since the she had given birth to their first child.   The officers stopped by the grocery store to pick up the flowers on the way home.  What a wonderful gift for her. No, not the flowers but the gift of his love he will never forget.

Thanks to Patrica M for this wonderful story.

He Even Gave the Homeless the Shirt Off His Back

This is an inspiring story I found.  I see many stories about homeless.  Most people think that what they need is the obvious- a place to sleep or a meal.  This story shows a father and son who took the time to offer an everyday need…shoes.  What a wonderful gift to these people who so often use what they can get (like the guy in the story that is actually wearing women’s shoes that are too small for him).  He goes from homeless person to homeless person and shares this simple but necessary gift.  It is a very moving and lovely expression of generosity and respect to these homeless people in need.  He is so moved when he finds this one man sleeping next door to an upscale restaurant he offers him his shirt off his back.  He then prays with the man before they part ways.  What a blessing he was to these people he met that day.  Be a blessing to someone today.  Share yourself with others.  You will be glad you did.  And as we say…….

Have a GREAT day…by making it a great day for someone else!!!
