There is a rich tradition of hospitality in the south. One tradition is that of the surcee—a small, unexpected gift with no occasion in mind. The surcee, a word that traces its roots back to Ireland and Scotland, means “surprise” or “just because”. In the south, a surcee is a way of expressing love and thoughtfulness. These small gifts are a way of saying “I’m thinking of you!”
When Paul and Timothy wrote to the church in Philippi, they said “Every time I think of you I thank God for you.”
Together with your girl, choose someone you can thank God for! A surcee is typically a small gift, but it could be an act of kindness. Together, you can show appreciation for someone “just because” today!
