5 minute Friday -- BEAUTY--The beauty of a cup of water given in Jesus' name

"I tell you the truth, anyone who gives you a cup of water in my name because you belong to Christ will certainly not lose his reward."
 Mark 9:41

There is BEAUTY in thinking of and in doing for others.  From the greatest of tasks to the the smallest of tasks, acting in kindness towards others matters and it is BEAUTIFUL.

In the last several weeks I have been the recipient of several refreshing cups of water.

  • Snowpants, lent to me so that our family could have a beautiful day on the slopes near our home (Yes, there is skiing in Indiana.  It is called Perfect North)  
  •  A handwritten note to tell me that someone was praying for me
  •  An invitation from a friend for coffee and conversation
  •  A text message, sent to say a friend was prompted to pray for me


You may not think it's much, but when you are the recipient of such blessings, it means the world.

I pray that God rewards each person for the kindness and beauty they showed me.

Now its my turn to go out and do the same for others.

Who's thirsty?
