Try that in a small town…
I don’t think that phrase needs an explanation for Jason Aldean or us, because there is much to be said about a small town and community.
The other day I was in a country general store, (grocery, pizza, gift shop and deli) when the new teachers of the area school district all came in for a lunch break during their orientation; accompanied by the Superintendent, the High School, Middle School, Elementary Principals, and the Technology Director.
The owner of the store greeted those she knew by name, welcomed the others with a short greeting, before being asked to bless the meal, which she did. The new team finished their lunch and boarded their bus to leave, when the owner once again went out to the team and prayed over them for the start of the new school year.
Try that in a big town or city and they would crucify you. First, for being out on taxpayer money in a bus, with all the administration. I mean doesn’t anyone work anymore, who is going to be available for a parent if they decide to come into the school. And two, don’t get me started about the prayer. Don’t they know about the fictional mainstream narrative of “separation of church and state”?
Yes this IS a small town, but this is also real community.
This is what we as humans were created to do. To love, help and honor one another as Christ loves us. It didn’t take much, it wasn’t a long drawn-out action, but a simple gesture to say hello, welcome new staff members to the area and ask that God bless their work this year.
This is why we started dulci sweets – to stand against the current of divisiveness and the wokeness of the world. We wanted to be mindful of where we spend our time and money and choose to do business with like-minded businesses and individuals that are committed to our shared values: honoring God, Family, Country and Community. We believe in the power of a simple act to uplift and connect – to let someone know they are worthy, valued and loved! That’s it. Oh, and make and share exceptional chocolate treats.
Try this in a small town and you will get a hug, a thank you, a prayer and maybe even a couple tears. And if you are reading this, YOU are part of our dulci sweets community! That gives us reason to celebrate and Thank God for you today.
So go out, share a smile, give a blessing, hug or share a delicious chocolate treat with a friend or a stranger. And tag us when you do it. #goodnessreceived
P.S. We are a purpose-driven, faith-centered company that gratefully serves people who love extraordinary chocolate – and want the people around them to know they are worthy, valued and loved.
At dulci sweets we are a family-owned business that will fight darkness with light, Fear with Faith, Hate with Hope, and create Goodness meant to be shared.ORDER SAMPLE BOXES
