Thirty years ago a classmate spoke one sentence that lodged in my memory.
Betsy Calhoun delivered the words in her honey-coated southern drawl, “If I ever had to preach a sermon, it would be on simple kindness.”
Alarming thoughts. “Preach a sermon?” “Simple Kindness?”
Well, Betsy, this Lent’s for you. I’m embarking on 40 Days of Kindness. My husband, usually supportive of my little projects can hardly contain his enthusiasm this year.
- I do not promise to always be kind.
- I promise to think about kindness. (even though it’s day one and the very idea of is making me tired)
- I’ll try on some special kindness shoes each day and see how they fit.
What are y’all doing this year for Lent?
