How do we truly know we are loveable and loved?
Meeting generous words and actions helps.
One of the ways we show love is to say ordinary extraordinary things.
We notice what those we love are doing and tell them in encouraging ways.
Another way we show love is through ordinary extraordinary actions.
We do things for and with the people we love from a generous, open-hearted place.
Truth is that one of the ways we share the love we know from the Holy is to be loving with people we do not know with total strangers.
Have you ever been the recipient of someone’s generous, unexpected act? from someone you did not know?
One time, after my wallet was stolen, a stranger fed me and bought me a train ticket home. It changed my life. I’ve been feeding people I don’t know, people who are scared and lost and hurting, ever since then. Generosity really does make a difference.
One time, after not seeing a former friend for many years, that friend reached out and sought to repair our relationship. It was a generous and bold act. Generosity really does make a difference.
One time…my life is full of those separate ordinary extraordinary experiences of generosity.
Generosity is one of the ways we show love, our love and the love of the Holy.
