A Year of Smiles – Day 13

Reason to SMILE #13: DOING GOOD

It’s Friday the 13th.  We all know the stigma associated with this day.  If anything bad is going to happen, it’s going to happen today.  To add to our qualms,  we are only one day past a full moon.  Hmmm.  That must be why my alarm clock screamed, “Let the craziness begin!” this morning. 😉

Why don’t we make today different?  Let’s turn this Friday the 13th into a day that good things happen.  Find someone to surprise today.  Bake your neighbor some cookies (and actually take the cookies to them – I’ve discovered that it doesn’t count if you don’t deliver them!  Who knew? 😉 ).  Go visit your grandmother that you haven’t seen in flowers-smiley-for-youages.  Complete a task that is your co-worker’s responsibility – lighten his or her load.  Hold open the door for someone at the store; carry their bags to their car.  Pay for someone’s meal.  Give money to the person holding the cardboard sign on the street corner.  There’s all kinds of things that you can do to transform this dreaded day into a welcomed day for some unsuspecting person.

Let’s show our world that God is good and His “perfect love expels all fear” (1 John 4: 18 NLT), even on a day like Friday the 13th.

What are you waiting on?  Go get busy doing good and watch the SMILES spread!
