a note from a stranger
my dear friend, Emma, received this note from a cashier after a lunch out.
a stranger paid for her meal.

these noteworthy moments are inspiring to say the least..

but how often do we overlook the random acts of kindness?
or surpass an opportunity to perform one,
because we doubt the impact that it will have.

my mentor has written about me on her blog for two years.
her readers have been praying for me
and leaving comments of encouragement..
I even recieved a doll that one reader
hand made for me!

the kindness of strangers overwhelms my heart,
and fills me with joy and hope.

therefore, be encouraged today--surprise a stranger with kindness!

"An anxious heart weighs down a man, but a kind word cheers him up."
-Proverbs 12:25  


  1. I am one of the ones who has prayed for you, dear. Hopping over from Kendal's to say hi. What a gift to see you here and get to "meet" you this way. Just loveliness.

  2. i love the new layout, em! and this piece - the stranger-kindness. yeah.

  3. Emily....it's so nice to put a face to your sweet name after the last few years of reading about you through KP, I mean kp, and praying for you. You indeed have a gift of writing! Love this story of the random act of kindness - hand written note on the napkin.....love that. Have heard of people paying for the person in front of them at a drive-thru but loving this idea. Thanks for sharing!
