It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 7, Page 27, Book 13

Be Nice to People

If you haven’t any charity in your heart, you have the worst kind of heart trouble.

There is no greater loan than a sympathetic ear.

Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for a kindness. 

Don’t wait for people to be friendly, show them how.

 The most important trip you may take in life is meeting people halfway. 

 Kindness, like a boomerang, always returns.  

 You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late. 

By swallowing evil words unsaid, no one has ever harmed his stomach. 

 Real generosity is doing something nice for someone who will never find out. 

How beautiful a day can be when kindness touches it!

Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves. 

To err on the side of kindness is seldom an error. 

There are no traffic jams when you go the extra mile.

The best way to knock the chip off your neighbor’s shoulder is to pat him on the back.

A bit of fragrance always clings to the hand that gives roses.

The kindest word in all the world is the unkind word, unsaid.

 In a world full of people who couldn’t care less, be someone who couldn’t care more.

We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.

Being considerate of others will take your children further in life than any college degree.

Open your heart – open it wide; someone is standing outside.

Specially Blended for loving kindness…

No act of kindness, no matter how small is ever wasted.
Little things mean a lot and when it comes to kindness, there is no doubt that each and every bit of kindness is needed.  We hear about random acts of kindness, but not much about the everyday kindnesses we can show to those around us.  Anything nice you do for someone can be considered an act of kindness. 

Kindness is love in action. Kindness is something you do. It's a practical expression of love. It's visible and active, not just emotional.

When I think of someone that is kind, I think of someone that is supportive.  One of the best ways to be supportive is by your speech. Building people up rather than tearing them down.  When it comes to kindness, good intentions don't count.

I choose kindness, I will be kind to the poor, for they are alone, kind to the rich, for they are afraid and kind to the unkind, for such is how God has treated me.

Max Lucado

Wht a HEAVY statement,
"When it comes to kindness, good intentions do not count."

That says a mouthful.

((Hugs)) from up here...


Being supportive is something some family's lack for sure. It's a good thing, indeed.

I wanted to be unkind to someone who was unkind to me a few weeks ago and the Lord reminded me that forgiveness is HIS specialty and as HE is WHO I want to be like, I was kind instead of unforgiving~~~HE IS A HANDS ON SAVIOUR!~~( right with us ALL THE TIME! ) ~ Jean( Rome Ga girl living in Calhoun) ~ Max Lucado writings are special to me~IONL

I am so sorry I am behind.
I agree - with kindness you have to walk the talk not talk the walk. sandie
