Reach Out

There is a sense of excitement in the air as we begin to make preparation for Thanksgiving. Many will travel from near and far to break bread with family members and friends.Yet in the midst of the festivities it is very easy to forget that for some it will be a very lonely and depressing season. There are many without jobs. Some are grieving over the lost of a love one. Others are estranged from their family members without any sign of reconciliation. The homeless are among us. And some who are living in a physical building still lack the daily basic human requirement for food, clothing, protection, love, joy, peace and nurturing.

As we approach this holiday season, let us remember to reach out to the poor and helpless. If we are blessed, we are called to be a blessing! We can use our power for good to serve humanity. That would mean giving of our time, gifts,talents and resources. Planting the seed of kindness is never in vain. For it will always bring much joy in return and leave an element of Hope and Encouragement in the lives of those that we have touched.

Happy Thanksgiving
