Day 28 - A small sacrifice

  • Comments 1

I started praying last night that God would open my eyes to an opportunity to meet a need and sacrifice something for my DH today.  I have had no idea what need to meet.  At just about bedtime, I went into the kitchen to slice a fresh peach for myself.  I had bought 2 at the store for myself.  As I walked by DH with my fresh fruit, I speared a piece with my fork and asked him if he wanted a bite.  When he took a bite, he said that it was really good.  I asked him if he wanted me to slice the other one for him, and he said no.  I went into the other room and ate my peach.  When I was done, I went back into the kitchen to put my plate and fork in the sink, and there it was.  My other peach sitting on the counter.  I thought about it for a second, and decided to give it to my husband.  I sliced it and took it to DH.  He flashed a slight smile when I gave it to him.  Not a very big need met or a very big sacrifice, but I know that I did the right thing.  Thank you God, for opening my eyes to an opportunity to sacrifice, even if it was only a piece of fruit.  It makes me happy to know that I was able to do something that brought a smile to his face, however short-lived it was.

  • How the LD changes our ways of thinking, about our spouse, others, self sacrifice, etc.  

    A simple sacrifice such as a peach can be profound.  And bring us closer to Christ.  Such a simple sacrifice can bring you to a new level of being kind to him.  Next time you buy fruit for yourself, you will probably choose to also buy fruit for him.  

    Each time we stretch ourselves in showing a new pattern of kindness, we soon see how the new level of kindness can easily become the norm.
