Aggressive Acts of Kindness

These three unattractive, disposable, ordinary containers
bear witness to "the person(s)" described by this quote:

It's not just a call to action; 
it's a call to being...
being the person who helps a friend in need...
who helps a stranger in need...
who practices aggressive acts of kindness. 
 ~Joyce Meyer 

I have been the "friend in need".
Oh, to be "the person"--
OR even the container--unattractive, disposable, ordinary,
emptied, ready to be used and re-used!


  1. That is a neat analogy, Rebecca!

    Trust you are doing well, mending well, and trusting well.


  2. What a beautiful, insightful, and thought-provoking post! So much wisdom packed into so few words! Thanks for visiting my last post, Rebecca. To answer your question, the Ikea desk I just bought for my office has a fabulous lift-up lid along the front of it (the part that is open to the room, right where the floor lamp stands). It is meant for the cords of all kinds of electrical appliances, since most people probably use this as a computer desk (although I'll be using it as a painting desk). The cord of the lamp goes right up next to the desk leg and then goes through a concealed 'cord' hole on the bottom of the desk. It then travels the length of the desk in the concealed compartment until it reaches the extension cord I have in there, which exits through the 'cord' hold nearest the wall and is plugged into the wall. Pretty clever design, actually! Much better than dragging cords underneath rugs, which I know is not a safety-conscious thing to do!
    I hope you have a lovely week!

    1. Can you tell I don't get "out" much? What a marvelous invention! I actually asked because I like the arrangement and have a place where I'd like to implement it (I have a few floor lamps), but couldn't figure out how to handle the cords....

  3. Oh the many containers that have made their way through our home in recent years! Opened up, used up, and used again. This is the generous grace of heaven!

    I am grateful. Praying you both are healing in body, soul, and spirit.
