The Power of a Simple Blessing

My boyfriend has a habit of slipping in a “God bless you!” to all and sundry — people on the street, shop assistants, Uber drivers, telemarketers — everyone receives a blessing when he interacts with them.

We were bushwalking one Wednesday afternoon when a spry old lady came past. “God bless you!” said Tasman.

She said, “Thank you so much! I really needed that. Tomorrow morning I’m attending a meeting about my health… and I’d really like a few more years here before going to God. Pray for me!”

Right there and then, we prayed together on the path for her, then parted ways.

Try giving a simple blessing to the people you meet today — you just never know whom you might lift up in their hour of need.
