  1. I love all of these! I am praying that God would help me to have a giving heart, and would make me aware of the needs of others around me!

  2. I love all these ideas so much!! I love doing these kinds of things, my difficulty is trying to find people to do them for. Sometimes last minute I get a bit shy too, depending on my mood. When I was younger I started giving people smiley-face notes all the time. I would write “hello”, “how are you” or a verse on it. I gave them out everywhere–visitors at church, the cashier at the grocery store, people at the hospital… because I wasn’t very good at writing Japanese at the time it was just one way I could communicate kindness without having to use many words. I was alway filled with so much joy when their faces would light up! Some of those smiley face notes resulted in friendships over time, the opportunity to give a Bible to someone, lots of tracts passed out etc. Smiley face notes have become a habit with me now. I really want to make a stack of them up, maybe business card size, to have on hand so I don’t have to always write them on scrap paper and receipts when out and about lol. Thanks for your list! I will probably write all these down somewhere. 🙂

  3. Putting bible verses in library books sounds fun. There are so many good ones. Thank you for this post Rebekah.

  4. I’m here re-reading this post weeks later, so it must be time to bookmark it for future reference… though I would love to tear out the ‘page’ and hang it by my mirror. 🙂 So many ways to “show a little bit of love and kindness,” as the song says! Love it. 🙂
