GIVE SOMEONE A GOLDEN APPLE TODAY!

Have you ever received a kind word or a compliment when you are having a rough day?  It is heartwarming isn't it?  Truth be told, even if your day is going well, a kind word or a compliment can make you glow on the inside.  The book of Proverbs says; "A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver." 

My husband can tell me a hundred times a day how much he loves me and is thankful for me, but I love hearing it one more time!  Why?  Because affirming and kind words are like food for our soul - 'an apple of gold.' 

My little Ava loves getting and giving 'golden apples!'

Why not use this day to affirm the people around you?  When last did you really appreciate a member of your family?  Did you affirm them with kind words? Maybe write a letter to someone and give away some gracious words.  Be generous with your words today. Don't wait for a compliment or look for kind words - be a giver!  Lavish kindness on the people around you and give them "an apple of gold in settings of silver."  I can assure you of one thing, no maybe two...it will change their day, but it will also brighten yours.

I am and always will be,

Recklessly abandoned, ruthlessly committed and in relentless pursuit of Jesus,

Carol
