Move outside

Move outside your present circumstances if this Christmas season is a melancholy one for you.

It is a difficult time of year for people who have lost loved ones or find themselves alone.

Try to concentrate on the blessings you do have like
shelter, food, a pet, an old friend or make a new one
by serving at the local rescue mission to those less fortunate.

You don't have to wait til Christmas Eve or Christmas Day
to extend yourself to people...
to bring a smile, a loving touch, a listening ear
or a secret santa gift.
Spend time with God in the Word.
Ask the Holy Spirit to minister unto you as you dwell together.
Peace will come.

"A meaningful life will not be found in the next job or the nextcar.
The way you get meaning in your life is to devote yourself
to helping others and creating something that gives you purpose."
Morrie Schwartz in Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom

"In everything I showed you that by working hard in this manner
you must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus,
that He Himself said, 'It is more blessed to give than to receive."
Acts 20-35

Be blessed ** Be a blessing
