Happy [ S O N ] day! I hope you all are surviving and managing one of the last weekends before C H R I S T M A S! If you watched my stories, you know I had a pretty fun night myself, dancing the night away with hubby's fab work crew! I had so much fun enjoying things money C A N N O T buy, which includes funny one-liners, twerking and my husband's suggestion he was a S T R I P P E R in college (which I can neither confirm or deny since he was there a year before me)🤣
As for today, at church I was reminded that G O D uses ordinary people to do [ E X T R A O R D I N A R Y ] things during our time on Earth, which is really the whole meaning behind T H E • S E A S O N anyway, ?! To H I M, it doesn't matter how many presents you can leave under the tree, or how impressive the halls you deck are, but rather our [ O B E D I E N C E ] to his W O R D and using our spiritual gifts to uplift others to advance his kingdom!
Don't wanna get all preachy, but rather, I want to E N C O U R A G E and remind you that no matter how much money you make, contributions and gifts don't have to be of M O N E T A R Y value to make an impact on someone's holiday season, let alone life. Thoughtful and mindful gestures like telling an employee at Target they did a great job at maintaining the dollar spot, complimenting a parent on how well behaved their child is while waiting in line for coffee, or even messaging your fave Instagrammer to let them know they're awesome can go a [ L O N G ] way in a season full of commitments, chaos and frenzy! Sometimes we all need a friendly reminder to slow down and to [ K I S S ] with the holidays- ya know, K E E P • I T • S I M P L E • S T U--- ( for all intensive purposes, let's sub with the word ' S I L L Y ' )
The good news is, the cost of using your [ H E A R T ] is a whole lot cheaper than any A P R a credit card can offer, so feel free to spread a whole lotta L O V E and rack up all the H E A V E N • P O I N T S you can get this season and beyond! 🙌🏾
Xo + Cheering you on to [ K•I•S•S ], J.
