Why can’t people be this nice all year around?



Over the past week whenever I have passed anyone I have said, ‘Merry Christmas’, and now ‘Happy, healthy New Year’.  People actually answer me back, with a similar comment.

When I am walking the beach any other month, I say ‘Good morning/afternoon/evening/Hello/Hi, and lucky if I get a third of people acknowledge me.  Some may be tourists, and don’t understand what I am saying, but a smile would be nice.

My wish for 2019 is that people will be kinder to each other.  If you know someone that lives on their own, phone them occasionally, or knock on their door.  Make an effort to keep in touch with friends, and family.

Give a friend a hug, we so often need them, and a smile on a face, is the best gift that we have to give.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
