I took a break. You may have figured that out. The last half of 2019 has been a whirlwind of change and hard things and God is calling me to REST in Him so I’ve done a whole lot of that the past month. I want to make sure when I share things with you here on this blog that you hear more of Him and less of me. So forgive me for not pushing out content the last few weeks.
We’re praying and planning for Season 3 of the Podcast coming in February 2020. We would love to know what you would like to hear, so please let us know via comments or messages!
I have something I’m working on that I am planning to share with you tomorrow, so I wanted to give you all a heads up. As many of you know, our friends Jason and Emily have been walking their son through leukemia since last May. He will begin his 6th (and Lord willing, FINAL) round of chemo on Thursday, December 12. I’ve been praying about something we could all do to help support them, encourage them, and count down the days of this final round and then it hit me… Random Acts for Boone.
Boone is a ray of sunshine. You cannot talk to this kid and not smile from ear to ear. He loves everyone and is full of giggles and smiles. SO, what better way to honor him than to bring joy to others!
Every day, I will post a Random Act challenge here on the blog and it will automatically post to the Facebook page as well. I would love for all of our readers to take the challenge by completing the random act, taking a picture or video of your act, and posting it on social media with the hashtag #RandomActsForBoone. That way, his family and friends will be able to search the hashtag and see all the acts that were done that day in Boone’s honor!
These acts are ones that ANYONE can do. For example, Day 1 is “make someone laugh”. You can do this on social media, at work, in the carpool lane at school, WHEREVER! Another example is “support a farmer”. This can be done in the form of buying something from a local farmer (Kentucky Proud Products are found almost everywhere in our town and online and support farmers!), shopping at a farmer’s market, or simply sharing an article about supporting local farmers on social media.
The point will be to take the challenge and make every effort to do the act of kindness and joy in whatever way you are able. And if you absolutely can’t do the act, find something else to do that day to spread JOY.
I hate cancer. I hate that Boone is fighting AML. I hate that his parents have to watch him go through this. BUT. We can choose to wallow in anger and sadness when challenging things happen. OR we can choose to fight back with JOY. I can promise you that Boone and his family are fighting back with joy. Let’s join forces and help fill these 30 days of treatment with SO much goodness, kindness and JOY.
