Has someone come into your mind today?
A thought, " hmmm, wonder how so and so is doing?"

What did you do when that thought came into your mind?

How many times has someone come into our minds, and we did nothing?
How many times have I thought of someone,
and thought, "I should drop that person a note."
"Well when i get done with this...".
Then you forget.
It doesn't get done. The note is never sent.

Did you find out later that person could
have really used that note, that contact, that day?
Did you find out they were sad and discouraged,
and wondered if anyone in the whole world
even knows or cares they are alive?
Did you know they were sitting, crying, feeling sad and alone?

That small voice tells us these things for a reason.
I need to learn to follow through!!
Not only will the person I contact be blessed and feel loved,
I will be blessed for following through with these little nudgings
from the Spirit.

Is there someone that came to mind when you read this?
Drop them a note, give them a call. Don't wait.
You'll know what you are supposed to do.
The Spirit will lead you.

Hi Barb, thanks for reminding me to listen to that small, still voice. Sometimes we get sooo busy with everyday things, that people we care about don't get the time from us that they deserve.

This post is so true. I've learned to drop that person a note as soon as I think of them because you are never know if maybe they really needed this. My brother (who I was astranged from at the time) a year ago was in a bad accident. Even though we weren't talking, I still prayed for him daily and I believe it was my prayers along with my Mother's I'm sure, that kept him alive. Thanks for the reminder, Theresa

Barbara Jean, what a nice thought! I often often think that someone needs a spiritual hug and I get busy. I will try to do better and send that card or make that call. Thank you for this lovely reminder...

hi barbara jean,

the other day i was reading on a local friend's blog that she was upset about her birthday and turning 39 so just for fun, i left her a present at work (our local library) -- one of my popsicle boxes filled with goodies.

she was out that day. turns out her dog had passed away and when she got to work the next day she was so happy to find the gift i'd left for her.

it made me so glad that i decided to surprise her with something - it has been a last-minute idea and i'm glad i acted upon it.

a nice post.

To anonymous:
I see by the comment you left you are very upset about something.

Your note was vague and i have no idea what you were referring to.

I certainly am wiling to listen if you have some constructive criticism, or would like to share your grievance, without name calling being involved.

I certainly do apologize for any upset i have caused you.

Blog land is a positive and encouraging place, and it should be kept that way.
