Thank God For Kind People

"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."
John 13:34-35

Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4:32

I thank God for surrounding me with much favor and kindness this week through the people He brought to my life.

  • my neighbors who took part in our community project. Many of them donated items for our library and learning center. Some brought boxes of milk and food on the opening day. Such act of kindness is not possible without God touching their hearts.

  • my hardworking friend who assisted me in our ESL program. She has committed to come 3 times a week to help in any way she can.

  • my children and niece who are also as excited as I am every time we see the number of children on our list increasing.

  • my dear husband (of course) for all the "behind the scene" work he puts in for the project, and for all the encouragement he is generously giving me.

  • and for my two mothers who are celebrating their birthdays this week. I just enjoyed chatting with my mom on Facebook on her birthday. My mother in-law is also celebrating her birthday today. I will be writing a post dedicated to her so I will keep this short. "I love you, Nanay. Thank you for all the love you've shown me since the day I was introduced to your family."

Judy, the grateful hostess of this meme every Wednesday is encouraging all of us to nurture a joyful heart by counting our blessings regularly. Click here: ~A Thankful Woman's Book of Blessings~ to visit her and meet other ladies who are celebrating thanksgiving everyday.
