Good Deeds

Borrowed this idea from Coco, who borrowed it from Belle.

I’m a big believer in karma, grace, serendipity…whatever you choose to call it. Paying it forward in its simplest terms. I have grace shown to me all the time, in such numerous ways it’s impossible to count. Yesterday, I went to a Bible Study at the Portland Art Museum hosted by a local church (man, was it good!). That free fruit definitely felt like grace to me.

What I love best about the giving and receiving of grace is the butterfly effect that it has. And that is where FAITH comes into grace. I have faith that if I do something kind and unselfish, then it will be the precipitator for another act of kindness which I may not see.

So, because yesterday I was given free fruit at the Bible Study, I gave my fruit this morning to the woman on the corner who told me she was hungry. Even if it stops right there, I don’t care, because by paying it forward, I honored the efforts of others who fed my stomach and fed my soul.

I love good deeds! They just never seem to happen to me for some reason. Maybe I should pay it forward more often, huh? GREAT IDEA!

You GO! Good for you spreading the good deed goodness of goods to the good.

I need to do more good, not in a verb way but noun way then I can use proper english and say that i did a good job well.

Sorry...I'm so weird sometimes that I even think I'm weird. You with me?
