Hi there! So happy that you are back with us. We are already through summer and in fact, back-to school supplies and clothes are already being replaced with winter clothes in the stores. I cannot believe how quickly time is passing. This is a beautiful time of changing seasons, back to school, and sports (especially here in Alabama!).
Our Heavenly Father wants us to enjoy this one and only life that He has given us but not to the exclusion of our ministry to others. Each day presents a new opportunity to help someone. We cannot allow ourselves to become so self-absorbed with our activities that we neglect the wants and needs of others.
We gave you a lot of service project ideas for summer last month, so this month, I want to try to show you something different. I want you to exercise your imagination for a few minutes. I want you to imagine being any or all of the list below:
Ladies, they are all around us. You may be one of them. Allow yourself to feel the pain and suffering that is going on everywhere in this world. Probably in your neighborhood, your church, your city and possibly in your home. Imagine what someone could do that would help make your situation even a small bit better. Feel their pain, their suffering and rejection.
Allow yourself to experience in your mind the grief, the agony of people who are all around you. They are desperate, without any hope at all unless someone reaches out to them. We all see the starving children from other countries on our televisions and iPhones and feel badly for them, but ladies, there are starving children right here around us who, if they didn’t get a meal at school, would have anything to eat all day!
We cannot forget them for the fall because some of them may not be here in the winter.
Please, just do your part. Do something to help someone this month of October. I promise that you will never regret a single thing that you do to help another in need.
Love y’all, Margie
