MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE

I was attempting to write another short story last week. Unfortunately, my creative juices decided to take leave of my mind, so things weren’t going very well.

In a moment of quite reflection, I asked God if I would ever do anything to help make the world a better place.

Suddenly, as if cued by an invisible force, a photo fell onto the floor from a folder that was resting on the edge of my desk. I picked the photo up and saw that God’s answer to my question was right in front of me. It was a photo of my children and grandchildren.

With a joyful heart, I looked upward and said, “Thank you, Lord! I understand, and I am truly grateful.”

Have you done something to help make the world a better place? If you have, and you know what it was, that’s wonderful! If you’re like me and aren’t sure, ask God. His answer may surprise you.

Be a blessing to others in all you do!

SOMEONE NEEDS YOUR HELP

Like many folks, you’re very busy. That is certainly understandable. Each day comes and goes as you go about your daily routine with barely enough time to catch your breath. You know the old saying — “so many things to do and so little time to get them done.”

It’s normal that we don’t pause long enough to see it, but someone in your sphere-of-influence needs your help — not every day, but often enough that you could make a difference in his or her life.

Sometimes you just need to pause a moment and take a good look around. I bet you will identify someone who needs your help — your support — your shoulder to lean on. When you do, please prayerfully consider being proactive by doing the following:

Don’t wait to be asked…

offer in advance,

Don’t sit down when needed…

stand tall and serve.

Don’t ignore tears of others…

wipe them with kindness.

Don’t talk if words won’t help…

listen to their silence.

For there may come a time in life

when you are the one who needs

the support of others.

Yes, you can make a big difference in the lives of others if you are willing to try. What are you waiting for — do it!

May your kindness and caring be a blessing to others.
