“….I’d rather be over-cooked…then RAW….”

20131025_065836Thank you…that’s very kind.  I really appreciate it.  Sounds nice enough…doesn’t it?  Problem is…it’s almost a forgotten art.  Meaning; there’s this trend of not extending common courtesies to one another.  Worse yet, neither side seem to care.  Too many people have compromised simple acts of kindness in favor of rude responses, or no response.  For me; I go out of my way to extend proper thanks for services rendered, and would not think, remotely, to do otherwise.  In fact, I enjoy being polite, courteous, and accommodating; not only to everyone, but especially to the unexpected.  I try not to over-do it, but I’d rather be over-cooked (too polite), then raw.  The middle-aged and elderly appreciate kind responses, and the younger set, too often, are numb to the difference.  On a regular basis, I hold the door open for people, especially ladies, and they respond positively.  And, I feel good, and proud, when someone holds the elevator for me, or the Church door.  Politeness is not a one-way street.  Ephesians 4:29 – Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. …Blessings…cjlb…10/25/13
