  1. Crystal,
    So true that God blesses us when we serve others. Through my work with Redeemer Christian Foundation and being able to give the gift of an education (plus food and humanitarian aid), to the orphans and destitute children forgotten in the Middle East, God has given so much back to me. These children pour out love and gratitude for the simplest things. When you have nothing, the slightest kindness is like gold. I see the teachers putting their lives on the line to teach and promote the love of Jesus and I am challenged to think whether I would be willing to risk my life for my faith and spreading the Good News? I believe God’s reasons for telling us to serve others are twofold…we get to bless others and we, in return, are blessed beyond our wildest imagination. Great post this am!
    Blessings,
    Bev

  2. Crystal,
    I visit my dad four times a week at the assisted living. I take him out for walks, get him involved in some activities and check on him. During my “downtime” form work I bake cookies for our “feed the multitude”, help out with Cancer Society Relay for Life and volunteer where I can. My husband and I sponsor a child in Ninos De Mexico orphanage. The children there are happy to receive anything–even a pair of boots can bring a smile. That attitude challenges me to be grateful for what I have and go out and share it with others!
    Blessings 🙂
