Dressing with Kindness

I enjoy writing stories based on true life. Some years ago two of my grandchildren showed an act of kindness towards their sister. It’s turned into a story.

The Apostle Paul admonishes in his letter to the church in Colossi:

As God’s chosen people… clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness,
humility, gentleness and patience. (Colossians 3:12 NIV)

The girls loved to dress up as princesses so that part had to go into the story. My assistant Cristina drew pictures and I made coloring pages. I had those pages with me when I visited at Thanksgiving. Sarah, the little one, wondered why she wasn’t in the story. So we had Cristina make her into a princess too.

Coloring puppets

Here Sarah was coloring. Then we made puppets. She had them act out the kindness of her siblings.

Do you want to read the story? You can print it: 41 Dress of Kindness

For a poster, activity, and coloring pages, visit MX1414.wordpress.com on the page: Stories for Children.

We here quite a lot about kindness and giving back this Christmas Season, but it should be a daily thing to dress with kindness.

May God help us to shine the light of Christ through kindness!

About kelund

My name is Kerstin Anderas-Lundquist. I was born in Sweden to Per & Brita Anderas, on March 6, 1946. In 1948 we left to begin a missionary life in Chile; in 1956 we moved on to Peru. On May 1, 1969 I married an all-Swedish guy from Karslkrona: Bengt Göran Emanuel Lundquist. God blessed us with two daughters: Eva-Marie Elizabeth and Ruth Carina. We served as missionaries in Peru and Bolivia. In 1988 we moved to the United States to work at Life Publishers in Miami, Florida. I was to assist in developing the line of Sunday School Curriculm in Spanish known as Vida Nueva. I live in Springfield, Missouri, and am retired from work at the Assemblies of God Headquarters. My husband and daughter Eva-Marie have been promoted to Heaven. Carina is married to Thom Cole and they have given me four gourgeous grandchildren, even five (teen-age John). I will be writing about my life, past and present, blended with visions for the future. My deepest desire is to spread the “seed of love”–inspiration to serve God and our neighbors with love and compassion.
