“The Traveling Twenties”
(AKA Random Acts of Kindness)
It started one day with an eye-opening realization. Not everyone had enough to eat or a friend or smile or heat or even a place to lay their head at night. Everyone was different. Everyone was in need and some were in need more than others. Twenties found their way into some very interesting adventures when they were put into the hands of those who cared but were unable to do. Those people then put twenties into the hands of those who saw but didn’t have twenties to give. When hearts say help and God says move, adventures are soon to follow!!!
ADVENTURE # 1 Traveling down the road we all see a lot of need in people walking from place to place in a world that moves at speeds faster than legs and bikes can go. Two men were struggling against the cool wind. One was carrying a ukulele, which caught our eye. Both long-haired hippies,(ask someone in their 60’s) which probably caused some to turn their heads away but drew us to their need. We were not going in the same direction. We could not offer a ride, a break from the wind but one of the twenties would go with them and maybe offer a warm cup of coffee and some meals. And maybe, just maybe when we turned to come back we would see the musicians and pick them up for a talk or song or rest from the wind.
WATCH FOR ADVENTURE #2 coming next week!

DO YOU WANT TO BE A MISSIONARY FOR A WEEK?
Jesus Calling: 365 Devotions For Kids by Sarah Young
Devotions written as if Jesus is speaking directly to a child’s heart.
Based on her original Jesus Calling, this version has been adapted in a language and fashion that kids and tweens can relate to their everyday lives.
After many years of writing in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to listen to God with pen in hand, writing down what she believed He was saying to her through Scripture. Others were blessed as she shared her writings, until people all over the world were using her devotionals. They are written from Jesus’ point of view, thus the title Jesus Calling. It is Sarah’s fervent prayer that our Savior may bless readers, and now young readers, with His presence and His peace in ever deeper measure. Available at Amazon.
