I'm at a crossroads. Standing on the beaten path. And suddenly I have this strong desire to do something wonderful.
See, I've been writing about some pretty amazing things that have happened to me.
Why do these acts of kindness mean so much that I keep writing about them? Well in 2003, after my son died, Cade lost hope in humanity. He didn't take his pain out on God, or life, or hospital staff. He took it out on everyone else, not wanting to trust a soul, guarding himself from strangers.
But since The Golden Sky came out--the story of our son's life and death--Cade has seen the selfless generosity of many people. And I've watched Cade change. This means more to me than almost anything--that your kindness has helped Cade heal.
Well, last week it happened again--a miracle. An amazing person read my blog (this post to be exact: If you've ever read my blog, please read this post.) and decided to anonymously send Wayman Publishing an iPad Mini for the giveaway! Cade and I were initially funding this giveaway (trying to help Wayman's authors gain exposure and succeed) nonetheless stressed, wondering how we'd afford the prize. Then to get an iPad Mini in the mail. . . It was a tremendous answer to prayer. And after God didn't heal Zeke, I've often wondered if He hears my prayers at all. . . .
So, how could I possibly thank someone for this? How? Especially someone who wanted to remain anonymous. I think I've found a way.
Random Acts of Kindness Blogfest
In May--27th-31st--I'd like to have a huge blogfest where people can share love and joy, by writing about random acts of kindness that have been bestowed upon them in their lives. Imagine, visiting the blogosphere and reading about so much hope!
If you have a blog, would you sign up and write something for this? If you don't have a blog, would you refer people to this link, so the word will spread?
For the blogfest, you can write something for any/all days, just make sure your main post is up on May 27th--that's the post I'll link to the blogfest :)
