I've been trying to catch up on emails today and I swear some folks must have woke up and gargled with vinegar. lol.
I think they try to get a "reaction" out of me....and they do...one of LOVE!
I extend kindness and love and 99% of the time it works and we end up as friends. Granted, I think I ran into the other 1% today. ;)
Anyhoo...one person wrote:
"You think you can save the world?! You think the Bible is really up to date? We live in a different world. You always quote that stupid Philippians 4:13. Move a mountain then. You're a dumb blond and it shows."
Wow, no warm fuzzies there! LOL :) I did write them a nice and loving note and received a nasty note in reply. Hey, I tried.
Anyhoo..right after that lovely note, I received an email from an anonymous person and all it said was: "Never believe that a few caring people can't change the world. For, indeed, that's all who ever have. Your daily emails have saved me from the pit of despair and self pity. Please, don't quit. You have no idea how much you are needed."
So..why do I mention all of this?
Maybe some of you would have answered the disgruntled person with anger.
Yet, that doesn't work and although sometimes being nice doesn't work...at least you are doing what Jesus would do!
Being angry and nasty to someone only makes you the same.
You sow what you reap.....so I'm very careful about what kind of seed I toss out there! :)

Boy does god have a way with timing. I know you wrote this earlier in the month, but I just now saw it (May 10). My husband owns a business where he hosts websites. He has had some nasty trouble with a client because said client did not pay his bill. Because of this, said client wants nothing to do with my husband or his mom since she referred said client to him.
It just got nasty today. I was honestly really angry and even, at first, hoped god would really get his attention to “teach him a lesson.” I do hope that this client will heal from whatever happened in his life. Thanks so much for the reminder.
