My Story:

It was with inner grief that my brother and I waved good-bye to our parents. We looked up at the ominous train station. “Well, bro, here goes nothing,” said I to my brother. (Well, actually, in real life I didn’t say that. Keep in mind that probably about 34% of this story is exaggerated.) After spending 3 hours and 12 minutes trying to buy the tickets (There, I did it again. Sigh.), we waited for our train on the platform. “Look! Our train is a-comin’!” cheered my brother. But as it turned out, it was only Thomas the Tank Engine chuffing past us and whistling, “Hi, y’all folks! I’m a very useful engine!”, and we watched him as he disappeared into the distance. “WAIT!!!” I screamed, waving my hands in agitation. “I was your fan back when I was sometime between 1 and 7, so I sort of want your autograph!!!” But alas, by that time it was too late. Our real train arrived, and we made way for the 53 pigs to get off the train. (Four of them were apparently a quartet in a group named The Hotdogs Of The Future.) One of them stepped on my foot, but I’m alright, don’t worry. (By the way, please raise the percentage from 34% to 65%, because I didn’t know I was going to write all that junk.) So we got on the train, and about 20 minutes later (There that’s more like it!)…

We gave our seats to two elderly women.

THE END

Conclusion

Showing kindness to other people, like simple acts such as encouraging others, gift-giving, and giving your seat to someone else, is a way to spread happiness to the ones around us. Furthermore, it is a kind of reflection of the merciful kindness of Jesus when He was on this earth, healing the sick, giving sight to the blind, making the lame to walk, and giving life to people who have died. The greatest act of kindness ever done on this planet earth was the substitutionary death of Jesus Christ on the cross. He willingly died for the people Whom God the Father gave to Him to be His chosen people before the world began. Let us thank God always for the Lord Jesus Christ, for the gift of salvation, for redemption, for the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, for the work of the Holy Spirit, for the Word of God, the Holy Bible, for creating us, and for ruling over all things by His almighty power.

“And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.” – Ephesians 4:32

There are three people who will get nominated for this special award. And they are…

Keziah Hofmann, Lydia Rose, and Elijah Holston!

(Well, if I was permitted, I would have nominated ALL of you!!!)

Thank y’all for reading, and may 2019 end in happiness for you and may 2020 begin with joy and brightness. 😉

Thank you, God, for this precious year of 2019, and please bless the next year, Lord. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

        1. Yes, it IS weird! And the fact that I am writing this comment right now is evidence that I am a real night owl!

          Thank you so much! I really hope your new year will be a blessing to you! How many more hours to your new year?

          At this point, I’m not hearing any fireworks, but there’s going to be some for sure! We probably won’t do any personal fireworks.

        2. Hey, man! Night owls are my best friends! People that can stay up and not…. well how am I wanting to say this? Lol Night owls are awesome! I’m totally not a morning person!

          You’re welcome! Thanks! Well, it’s 12:15 pm right now. So lunch time. Almost another whole 12 hours for us!

          I’m yeah. I’m sure they’ll get booming. We always have fun with ours.

        3. Yeah, I’m thinking about it, but I’m at a fork in the road right now: One road leads to writing a post about the new year; the other leads to my home sweet bed. Which one seems wise?

        4. Awesome sauce! Another thing about being a night owl is it’s really easy to laugh or make something sound funny. You are succeeding so well right now, because you’ve got me laughing hard! The way you word your replies! 😉 😉 😉

        5. Aww, I’m flattered! ( I just saw that phrase on Keziah’s blog just now. I’m writing this to avoid copyright complications.) To be honest, in real life, I’m not all that funny… (I think I saw that phrase on the said blog as well…) 🤔

    1. Thank you, sir! Happy New Year to you, too! Actually, this post was meant to be Part 2 of J&J’s Adventures (Part 1 being about us getting lost in the forest when climbing back down the mountain), but I kind of enhanced it to make it a little more interesting and dramatic… a little too much, perhaps! 😊

    1. Oh, don’t worry about it! It’s the thought that counts. Thanks for stopping by, Elijah, and I’m praying that God will make this new year 2020 a blessing for you and your family. Happy New Year!! 😄
