A Blessing....

Last week I woke up to a note that had been left in my apartment door. The note read as follows:

Friend:


In an effort to meet a challenge given to me, I am writing this encouragement. The idea is simply to give during this Thanksgiving season. By giving, we are ensuring that everyone has something to be thankful for, and in the giving, we can be thankful of the opportunity to give. It’s pretty cool how that works.

It has been said by many that “you have not lived a perfect day unless you have done something for someone who will never be able to repay you.” It is my hope that by remaining anonymous (please honor this by avoiding speculation) and by praying the nastiest blessing I can come up with, that such an event will take place.

Be blessed,

A Friend from Church
The note was followed by two additional pages full of blessings and scriptures.

A few of them are as follows:

May God bless all of your efforts and all that you produce so that its reach is long beyond your own. Let the benefits of those efforts be so much so that all of the valleys of the mountains and the caverns of the seas not be able to contain them. (gen. 1:22)

May your name be great, and associated with blessing. Let your blessing be critically contagious so that those who bless you will be blessed, and those that curse you will be cursed. Let the blessings poured out on you affect and infect all people on this earth for generations to come. (gen 12:2-3)

May God remember His promises to you, and bless you where you are while you wait for His banqueting table (gen 26:2-3)

May the Lord bless you and hold onto you oh so tightly so that you can feel the beat of His heart and move with it. May his blessing and pleasure and graces cover you. May His face never turn from you as you enjoy His unimaginable peace (Numbers 6:24-26)

....and it goes on. Lots of them!!!

Amazing, HUH?!?!?!?!

So. If the person that left this reads my blog- I am grateful.  Thank you for your thoughtful and FUN blessing!!! I love it!
