Reading from Mary Beeke's book "Kindness" today, I was struck by the beauty of this ideal for our relationships with loved ones:

"I read of a man's description of his mother, and one thing that stood out in his memory was that, every time his mother looked at him, she 'brightened.' Let's make a more conscious effort to smile.  It should be simple. A smile chases away the shadows in the heart of both the giver and the receiver...Let's not let the drudgery of everyday life overshadow the abundance of blessings we enjoy."

Hello Alyssa!

I came upon your blog today, and thoroughly enjoyed reading your courtship/engagement story and also some of your other posts. Your thoughts and words have been an encouragement to me. :)

In Christ,
