Oozing a Day at a Time

I picked up the phone and had a really good conversation with a family member yesterday. We don't talk very reason...but she adores my children and our entire family.

It was an "oozing" moment. I took the time, let my guard down and simply loved someone through a conversation. It felt really good and it changed the whole tone of my evening.

Something so simple as a phone call. What are others ways we can "ooze" everday?

Saying hello, opening a door, laughing with someone, looking at them in the eye at the checkout stand, being available.

There are so many ways we can ooze the light of Christ in our daily lives. It's not just about being in church on Sunday and doing all the "church" stuff. It's about taking all of that and making it appear through you in your everday activities in the real world.

I'm not talking about taking a Bible and shoving it at someone and telling them they are going to hell if they don't's the little things that really make a difference.

What are you going to do today to be more of an "oozer?"

Today I Am Thankful For:

1. a fresh maicure/pedicure
2. my son's music
3. quick trips to Las Cruces
4. new sandals
5. possibilities
