Love is in the Air – Go Make a Friend

By DiAnn Mills @DiAnnMills

Congratulations to Renee from PA and Carolyn from CA who were randomly selected in the Valentine’s Giveaway last week. I’m a little jealous of those yummy chocolates.

Today is a celebration of love. We want to focus on all the wonderful attributes of love and feeling loved.

The more friends we have, the more love spills into the world. Whatever we can do to make this world a better place is a good thing.

Here are 4 ways to reach out to others.

  1. A smile. Doesn’t cost a thing to make the gesture, only a few muscles.
  2. A friendly greeting. We’re moving up a bit. Hello = one word. Good morning = two words. Have a great day = four words
  3. Pray for others.
  4. Repeat all of the above to ensure loving people is a habit.

The result is we feel better about ourselves, and we gain new friends.

Take a look around you. How do you coax a frown into a smile?

    I love doing little things that people will barely notice. A candy left in an office mailbox or small anonymous gifts that make people smile. I try to remember to take a few minutes to listen, even when I don’t have the time. I’m often glad that I did. I wonder how much people read those little comments on Facebook, when they are sad or needing prayer? I don’t know, but I have to try. Thanks for the reminder, DiAnn. Happy Valentine’s Day!

    I have a card ministry, and I always try to pray that the cards I mail to people will brighten their day—even if only a tiny bit. It has amazed me that so many times folks will later tell me that a card they received from me arrived at exactly the right time—they were having a bad day or something had happened that I didn’t even know about. I have to smile and say “That was God at work!” and I am so thankful He can use something small that I do to give someone else even a little lift in their day. 🙂

    I am learning that nothing is about me, but rather; all about God. When I know it’s all about Him, and He has entrusted me to work with Him, I begin to see life through His eyes. I am learning love people regardless of the reality; especially my fear which prevents me from loving like I can!
    I volunteer at a Mission home, and I give what God has given to me: His love, through my smile and greetings. Thanks for the reminder, DiAnn.

    Just got back from a friend’s house. I helped her address thank you cards for gifts and food after her husband’s funeral. She actually smiled as we talked about things we had in common and the good memories! It will take time to heal, but with Christ– everything is possible!
