Day 334: Drawing Pictures with Our Oldest

October 7, 2012

For my 334th act of love, our oldest daughter and I drew you some pictures on construction paper. Unfortunately, I can’t post pictures of them here because I didn’t take any. That’s just as well because I don’t think the world’s ready for my artistic genius.


Day 333: Weekly Article: Serving Together

October 7, 2012

For my 333rd act of love, I read this article from Focus on the Family about serving others as a couple. We’ve done a bit of serving together and it’s always made us closer and more unified. But, as the article points out, serving others isn’t about the benefit that we accrue, but the benefit of others.

As the holiday season approaches, I’m becoming more and more mindful of those who are in need. I think we should begin planning how to incorporate acts of giving to the needy into our holiday tradition. I’m sure that’ll make our holidays more meaningful (for us and others) and it’ll be a great example to our kids.
