i may have mentioned this before here, but i always feel so handy when coming out of a home improvement store with a bag of supplies i need to do a job.
so what if it’s just a few light bulbs (like it happened to be today). the feeling of satisfaction that i get when i go into the store, get the *correct* items and finish the job *properly* when i get home gives me a great feeling inside (for a moment, i think i can do anything).
how many white men does it take to screw in a light bulb?
(i’ll let you insert your own punchline here)
this afternoon after church, some friends of mine invited me up to a restaurant that they work at to join them for lunch.
it was a brilliant time of catching up with new things going on in our lives over delicious food. i was blessed when instead of handing me a bill at the end of the meal they simply said, “it (the bill) has been taken care of.”
what a blessing. something as simple as that made me feel really loved today.
i’ve decided that i’m going to pay it forward this week – to find someone that i can bless in some small way and expect nothing in return.
