This post is part of Linda G. Hill’s fun weekly series One-Liner Wednesday. If you have a one-liner, I’d encourage you to join in on the fun. You can follow this link to participate and to see the one-liners from the other participants.
I very much enjoyed Dan Antion, No facilities post this morning for #1Liner Wednesday titled The Best in People. It is such a wonderful story that shows when people are in bleak situations together and 1 member has a greater need, then all hands drop what they are doing to assist and encourage that need. It reflects the true nature of people as God first intended – Love Thy Neighbor. And the neighbor is not a literal term but any person requiring a genuine need. Does the requesting get abused yes, is the help still needed, more than ever.
While GOOD is still alive on this earth, it needs to be spread as far as it will go. There will be a day when all the good will be gone – when God says -Enough-. That will be a horrific day; a frightening day. But until that day comes, we must persevere shining the good in all the dark places to help lighten more ways for good to enlighten all of our paths. When light is there, darkness can not be seen.
Today my sweet loving church brought me a get well box filled with all sort of goodies – cookies, snacks, tea, a book to read, a magazine of brain games(if find my brain) and the copies of the Bible studies that I have missed. So very wonderful, kind and blessed people. They are forever spreading the good out to all of those who need it.
Being temporally handicap is a real pain but it gives me real perspective for those who are permanently handicapped. I belong to a group of wonderful people who are a little on the eccentric side – we are clowns. Not circus clowns but ministering clowns. We visit nursing homes, hospitals, churches, etc. Anywhere we can show some of the goodness and kindness left in this world. It is important that – GOOD DOES NOT GIVE UP! We bring smiles from our crazy costumes, silly antics, magic acts, story telling, face painting and lots of love. If we can make a person forget their misery for 1 minute and give them a sweet memory, then we have done a kind thing and have met our daily goal.
Did you know that it takes more muscles in your face to frown than it does to smile? Scientific fact! So the goal needs to be more smiling, and less hard work. Another scientific fact – smiling causes less wrinkles. You may get smile lines though. I challenge you today to be kind and to smile. They are both infectious.
The “C.” stands for Christ

Oh, Anita! I read this post before. I like it very much too! I can see why it is one of your favorites. I think that it is important to show our gratitude to God for his grace by living a life of kindness and compassion. It’s our way of giving back. Thank you so much for posting!
