https://patrickrealstories.files.wordpress.com

We are blessed to be a blessing to others. Here are some simple ways to challenge yourself to do this:

Intentionally bless three people each week through words, gifts, or actions. Be creative. Here are some ideas:

 

  1. Spend some time with a friend who is having a rough week.

 

2. Help a neighbor with a project or chore using a hobby or personal interest.

 

3. Host a kid’s movie night with your  neigbour and their kids.

4. Drive an elderly or handicapped person to the grocery store or supermarket or church or mosque

 

5. Listen to someone who is going through a tough time, your listening might change his/her life

 

 

6. Pay for someone’s bill at the pump station

 

7. Have a game night (yard games outside (like football) or board games inside (like ludo, chess, draught)

 

 

8. Donate to the less privilege or downtrodden like in kinds or in money.

 

9. Find a way to make new relationships with the purpose of blessing others.

 

10. Invite a neighbor or friend to   join a personal or family meal.

  1. Great ideas Patrick. For me, the way I feel I could be a blessing to others is by helping through volunteer work at my church or at a food/clothes pantry. I would like to volunteer even at a senior center one day

      1. And thank you for the comment. Volunteering is a way for us as Christians to show humility just like Jesus didn’t when He got down and washed His disciples feet.

  3. Great ideas about blessings. From your blogs i read, it shows me that you are a very sweet and sentimental person. Very cautious about every emotion that you feel and go though. You are also a deep thinker. Keep it up on your good work. You have the ability to inspire the hearts of others 🙂

  6. God bless your soul Patrick, a beautiful and thoughtful Sunday Read.

    I like to be here to help my friends in any way I can. Though these past eighteen months they have helped me more than I can help in return. I find that to just be there to listen or read and respond to their messages at any time day or night is a little thing I can do in return

    . Saying a kind word or smiling to a stranger in the street or supermarket is also something I do. Before I become ill when I used to travel by bus to work, I would always speak to the person who seemed most lonely or sad, a lot of the time they just wanted to say hello to someone as apart from the bus driver they hadn’t seen anyone all week.

    Take care my new friend.

  14. This used to be my husband and I’s favorite hobby, helping people. We never had much but my husband is the kind to give the shirt off his back. He’s asked me not to go into the streets while he’s away for my safety. Now I look for ways to help the couple who have provided me with room and board and the children God has placed in my care.

  15. Hi Patrick – Firstly thanks for following me and for bringing your site to my attention. You are very inspirational.
    The above comments are wonderful, you have some truly kind followers. Unfortunately one person in particular stood out for the wrong reasons. People will see life through their own life experience filters, one will view a situation one way the other person could view it totally different. All I want to say is the way you responded was a massive credit to you, you came across as humble, kind and caring. Well done!
