3 Points To Ponder

"We are called human beings, but we should be called human feelings. To feel is to be alive. Do a quick heart check today. Are your feelings lifting you up or dragging you down right now?"

"The inner peace of small delights is the sweet nectar allowing a flower to bloom. When is the last time you were truly delighted in something small, but powerful?"

"Delight comes from a heart overflowing with love. Generosity to embrace joy is a natural byproduct. What is one relationship you delight in right now? Does that person know how you feel?"

1 Story of Impact

In 2017, we took a board retreat to Pignon, Haiti, the main area of our growing community strategy. One of our board members, Tim Van Maanen, has served in the area since 2010, once spending a couple months in the area to oversee a large construction project. On this particular day, we were riding in the back of a pickup truck, heading to some of our partner schools and Tim saw one of his Haitian friends, Bygone. Now, when I see a friend, I typically give a smile and wave and move on. Not Tim. He started banging on top of the truck roof, indicating he wanted them to stop. Abruptly halting about 40 yards from Bygone, Tim jumps out of the truck and starts sprinting towards Bygone. Bygone sees this and returns the action, running towards Tim. Meeting somewhere in the middle, they affectionately embrace one another, with smiles, laughter, and a few tears shed. It is a picture seared into my head of truly delighting in one another. When is the last time you delighted in someone, where the person had no doubt how overjoyed you were to have them in your life? The people you love might forget the words you say, but they will never forget the way you made them feel. Go the extra step this week and delight in your love. See how it makes both of you feel. A little delight goes a long way.
