Light in the Darkness: January 27


Maria at Four Blessings Academy is hosting an uplifting meme for every Monday called Light in the Darkness. Here we share stories of hope and joy. We can link to a news article or video or tell a story from our own lives. Post about your story and then link to Maria's blog. There is enough negativity in this world. Let's spread some joy and light up the darkness! 

This is a story of woman who decided to celebrate her 30th birthday by doing random acts of kindness. This story only reports on 25 of the acts because her birthday is January 27th! Today! They will add them on this week.
She also asked her friends to do a random act of kindness for her birthday instead of a gift and tell her about it.
Amazing lady. She does a lot of volunteer and charity work. This is not just something done on a whim. She is surely a light in the darkness.

What a great idea! Do an act of kindness instead of a birthday present.

I'll try that next birthday.

God bless.

Very inspiring. If we put our minds to it, we can all come up with random acts of kindness every day. Sometimes it's for our spouse! Also, we need to remember the power of prayer. This lady seems like such a lovely person.
