“Have a Marvelous or Mediocre Day”

Church tower with cross, Lamentations 3:22-23 scripture verses

Given new mercies

Everyday, why accept

Mediocracy?

Senryu

It is of the LORD’S mercies (goodness, kindness, favor)

that we are not consumed, (destroyed, ended)

because his compassions ( tender love, caring) fail not.

They ( goodness, kindness, favor, caring, tender love) are new every morning:

great is thy faithfulness )

Lamentations 3:22-23

If God offers us the chance to have a marvelous day every morning, why do we settle for less?

National Compliment Day

Bouquet of Flowers, compliments

Admire someone today

Bless them too

Compliments pay

Delights spew

Encouraging words say

Favors do

Give thanks or pray

Honor a few

Inspire not inveigh

Just give a hug or two

Kindness display

Laud anew

Make someone’s day

Nod out of the blue

Ovation convey

Praise imbue

Quiet gratitude portray

Uplift in the midst of ado

Visit to chase away gray

Write thoughtful words true

X-out actions that cause dismay

Yes, bless others all day through

Zip berating, give a kudos bouquet

Give Kindness

Be Kind chalk drawing

Kindness,

Easy to give,

But so often not given.

Hearts are waiting to receive,

Be kind.

Cinquain

We would call a man selfish who should refuse to give a cup of water to one who was thirsty. Yet many of us do this continually: it is the heart that thirsts, and the water we refuse to give is human kindness.

Good Deeds

Daisy, flower, hand
Taking time to show you care

Offering up a sincere prayer, 

Meeting a strangers need,

Doing a small kindly deed,

Sometimes means a whole lot more

Than lots of money given to the poor

Do something small for the least 

Let God multiply it into a feast
