I’m sure you noticed when you go to the store, doctors, talking on the phone etc. And, really any public venue where you are exchanging words with others such as employees, passers-by, and acquaintances . I’ve noticed when interacting with others outside of my home, when talking to employees at one place or another or talking to others out and about when they say “have a good day”, and I say ” have a blessed day”, some may say right away ” thank you, you too”. Other times when I say ” have a blessed day” there is an awkward pause from some people, then they say either ” thank you”, or ” you too”, sometimes in a surprised or taken aback kind of way.
I always extend a friendly “Hello”, in passing to people out and about, Sometimes they say ” hello” back, sometimes it’s the pause then a “hello”, and at times some don’t say anything back, and that’s okay too.
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.Colossians: 3:12 (NIV)
Paul offers us a plan of action to help us live for God in our daily life. The plan of action includes; 1.) Imitate Christ’s compassion and attitudes, 2.) Let Love guide us, 3.) Let Christ’s peace reside in our hearts, 4.) Be thankful, 5.) Keep God’s word in us, 6.) We are to live as Jesus’ ambassadors.
Dear Friends, I pray for your day to be filled with peace and joy. I pray that you feel the warmth of our Lords' unfailing, faithful, infinite Love within you. Jesus, I pray that you bless friends near and far, you know all of our needs. Jesus, I pray for those who need you to rest their minds, regroup and reset their spirit. In the name of Jesus, I pray, ~Amen~ Blessings Friends... Paula~
