While stopping at a drive-thru for some ice cream after a long day outside, Pastor Brent Kelley and his children witnessed a heart warming moment take place with an older couple.
“So today, I took the kids to the pool and we stopped for ice cream on the way home. When I got my ice cream and pulled out, I realized that this elderly man beside me was sitting outside his car door, spoon feeding his wife ice cream who also looked in her late eighties.”
“He draped a towel over her and slowly fed his bride in the 98 degree temperature. It was a beautiful display of love,” said Brent.
While we often only hear of the stressful and fear-based situations going on in the world from the media, this story reminds us to open our eyes and take a look around; there are beautiful acts of love and kindness happening all around us each day. When we start to notice them, our hearts open and our focus shifts to see the good things happening in life.
The truth is that acts of kindness and compassion happen thousands of times more than the scary events we see on T.V. each day, and by keeping our eyes focused on the bright side of life, we will in turn, be happier people.
You are Loved.
