Don’t always be on the lookout for what you can get from others, focus instead on what you have to offer. Your kindness in giving and sharing will reap sweeter rewards.
Decisions are made every day. Some for the greater good and some that can cause harm. God has taught us to love thy neighbor as thyself. Let us make decisions today that will not only shape our lives for the better but the lives of those around us and throughout the world as well. Decide to bring love not pain.
Set a good example, be love and those in need will follow. There are so many children out there who need direction, positive reinforcement, compassion and unconditional love. There are over 400,000 children in Foster Care in our nation and over 12,000 in Georgia alone. These kids need mentors, role models, and a place to call home. Becoming a foster parent is the most amazing gift to a child in need, but not everyone is able to do that. If you can’t but want to help change a child’s life consider volunteering or giving to a charity like Camp Horizon. Camp Horizon has been changing the lives of children in foster care for 35 years. It is one of the most rewarding experiences you will ever have. Find out more at www.CampHorizon.net . Become a mentor today!
I meant to get this out on Memorial Day as a thought to all our service men and women living with PTSD. Though this should also be a reminder to all of us, with all the pain, anger and negativity that hits us on a constant daily basis, our minds dwell in that. We forget to look for the light, the positives, that are out there in the world. We need to stop and turn off the TV, radio, and other negative influences. Go outside enjoy nature, read a book, or listen to music, find what brings you back to the light. Look to a neighbor, friend, or co-worker find a way big or small to be their light today and I promise you it will brighten your heart as well.
