Sharing Kindness


HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY

 

CONGRATULATIONS BECKY MCCLENDON

For those who have not heard or did not see the Facebook posting of the drawing, Becky was the owner of the winning ticket and is now the owner of a new diamond ring, congratulations and enjoy!

 

I received a card in the mail from one of our families who moved to Ft. Worth a few years ago. Many of you may remember Sarah a single mom who was raising three children (Drew, Abby and Morgan). Sarah is married and is now Sarah Hall, Abby is in Highschool and Morgan is a 6th grader. Sarah sent a picture and address for Drew because he is a young man serving in the US Marines! I have Sarah’s and Drew’s address so if you would like to send them a card let me know and I will get you the address.

I don’t think it is just a coincidence that Sarah sent her card this week. We are getting ready for Mother’s Day and the continuing of our sermon series and guess what the topic is this week. This week we will be talking about “KINDESS”. It just so happens that in her own words Sarah wrote in her note, “the Potosi church family were a haven to us for a few years.” She also said, “I have never forgotten Potosi Baptist their love and wonderful family of people.”

That is what it is all about ministering to people with God’s love thru kindness! It is always a blessing to hear good reports from families that you had the opportunity to help along the way. May this story encourage you to keep on sharing kindness because you never now what the other person may be having to deal with in their life.

 

Bring your families and join me this Sunday as we are talking about “Sharing Kindness” and as we honor our mom’s.

No evening Service at the church, Sunday evening we will do “Church at Home”, gather your families and or friends and have your own simple, devotion time and prayer focusing on the “Thankfulness of Mothers”.

 

Prayer Needs: Caleb Sanders (14-year-old grandson of some dear friends from Hawley, he is in hospice and not expected to live much longer here on earth), Matthew (nephew of Fred Martinez)

 

Ranger Game: We are going to have to make some tough decisions soon. We need to sell 17 more tickets soon! Get your tickets soon or the trip may have to be cancelled.

 

Final thought: I came across the following quotes this week and they didn’t have the person who said them listed but I thought they were worth sharing.

 

“One kind word can change someone’s entire day.”

 

“If you want more kindness in the world put it there.”

 

As I reflect on my years of ministry and the many kind people I have had the opportunity to work alongside it brings a smile to my face and joy to my heart to remember each of them. What is also interesting as I do this is the first person I think of from each church I have pastored is a dear sweet elderly lady that never spoke above a whisper and always had a smile and act of kindness. Thank You ladies: Mrs. Burleson (Funston), Mrs. Brown (Sylvester), Mrs. Ryan (Hawley), Mrs. Healer (Sweetwater), Mrs. Ross (Hodges) & Mrs. Morton (Potosi) for sharing kindness and being godly examples for others to learn from.

 

Isn’t that quote a good one: “If you want more kindness in the world, put it there”? Let’s do it!

 

Your pastor and friend

Bro. Keith
