Simply Kind Tuesday

Today I would ordinarily do a Ten on Tuesday post, but I didn’t feel like playing along with the topic this week: 10 Things You Want For the Holiday. It’s more blessed to give than to receive, right? So, I’ll do my own little thing here: 10 Things I Want to Give Each Day.

  1. I want to give thanks to the Lord each day, most of all, for Who He is. As stated so succinctly in the Westminster Shorter Catechism, ‘God is a Spirit, infinite, eternal, and unchangeable, in his being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness, and truth.’
  2. I want to give a pleasant greeting to my family when I see them each morning.
  3. I want to give my employer a good day’s work for their dollar.
  4. I want to give thought to what I will serve my family for dinner (Think: Plan Ahead.)
  5. I want to give a smile to others throughout the day.
  6. I want to give my attention to those who speak to me.
  7. I want to give myself some exercise and relaxation by going for a walk each day.
  8. I want to give praise to others whenever possible.
  9. I want to give humble, wholesome criticism when it is necessary.
  10. I want to give encouragement to the students with whom I work, as much as possible.

Now that the list is written I guess I can post it under Simply Kind Tuesdays.

  2. What a lovely post! Well done! I admire your desire to change around what I get to what I give. That’s the ultimate in kindness.

    Thanks for participating

    thanks for the post, Joyce! I would love to speak to a class of wannabe writers one day. If we could only reach them when it counts, so that they get the full effect of writing and language arts, and so on. My daughter will be an English teacher and she feels just the same way!
