Be An Angel!

Today is “Be An Angel” Day!  It was started in 1993 by a woman named Jayne Howard Feldman who was inspired by angels to create this day.  Basically, it’s a day to do an act of kindness for someone else.

I have learned so much about God’s love and grace from these women in my life, that I hope to emulate in my life as well.  I am so blessed to have their love and encouragement!
