This is an old project, with some still-current product — specifically, the wonderful Dreams du Jour stamp set.
Once in a while in camp we’ll make a 3D project (also known as an ABC — anything but a card). It’s cute, sure, but some stampers are left with the question, “What do I do with this now?”
May I suggest that on this Day of Love you go out of your way (whether it’s literally out of your way or simply out of your comfort zone) to give a blessing to someone. Yesterday I was in a big-box store with my weekly coupon looking for the paper bags we use for Super Saturday. Didn’t have them. I asked a stranger if she wanted to use my coupon. I believe she must have first thought I said, “Would you donate a kidney to me?” so suspicious was her reaction. Then it dawned on her that it was just a no-strings-attached, tiny gift. And she beamed with delight.
Kinda did my heart good.
So whether you give your bank teller a band aid tin full of conversation hearts or you return a cart to the store, surprise somebody with a good deed.
In our bathroom, we have two framed Sunday School weekly fliers. Yeah, it sounds strange, but the artwork on them is so beautiful, I just had to have them (at $1.00 each). The verse on one of them is this:
Look all around you, find someone in need -- Help somebody today. Though it be little -- a neighborly deed -- Help somebody today. Help somebody today! Somebody along life's way. Let worry be ended, The friendless befriended -- Oh, help somebody today.
