This week there was a very special picture that was making it's way around the internet.
This is officer Lawrence De Primo, who works the beat around Times Square. He encountered this homeless man, and rather than ignoring him... like many have already done... he disappears for a bit and returns with a pair of boots and socks, and is here helping the man put them on. This picture was taken on a phone by a random passing person.
That my friend is a Random Act of Kindness... or as a favorite pastor of mine says... Being the Lord's hands and feet... Jesus with skin on.
As we are starting the Christmas season, I too want to remember the real meaning of Christmas with some Random acts of kindness. How about you?
I found an awesome site on Random Acts of Kindness, and they have some very touching stories, and great ideas of what you might do for others. No, you do not have to spend money.... look around and see what you can do.
*Open a door for someone with their hands full.
*Call or drop by an elderly friends house, and spend time talking with them.
*Tell someone that you appreciate how special they are, they may not know how much of a difference they have made in your life.
This site has some awesome ideas that will get you going. It only takes a minute to care... You can do this.
Be on the look out for more RAOK, and share with us what you see... or what you have done.
On the look out... Ma and Pa
