I have to admit that I waste food. I'm not proud of it and I don't do it with intention. I'm one, a very picky eater and two, somewhat of a hoarder. I don't know where I get it from, but it's a habit that I've yet to break. I stock up on toiletries and food. I have food in my car, office and home. When my son visits, he's always saying, "Mom, why do you have all this food?"
As most of you know, its just me and the doggie. (smile) Anyway, I'm writing this post in hopes to reaching out to Solomon, my blog friend. His comments on my last post really touched my heart. I'm asking that he contact me via e-mail so that I may offer him some assistance. I'm not rich by any means and oftentimes when people think of helping someone, they initially think that they don't have the time or money. There are many ways in which the Lord will use you, if you just start by opening your heart.
I wonder what would happen if we gave a stranger $5 or $10? He/she just might buy a cup of coffee, a breakfast sandwich and a want add. In turn, there could be a job opening in that very same newspaper that he/she is qualified for. Better yet, it just may say, "No experience necessary!"
So, I'm asking that if you can't help Solomon, look around you today in your routine travels and look a stranger in the eye. The eyes never lie (unless the person is a really great actor). The eyes usually say, "I'm in need of something.... food, clothing, a place to sleep, something to eat, a hug, a prayer, etc..." Help someone and watch the rewards overflow in your life!
"Happiness and joy come in this life when we share God's blessings with others!
Love for a great day!
