...have I helped anyone in need?
About a month ago, my cousin Jason's Shayla sent me a Facebook message asking me if I would be willing to do a favor for her.
Over the course of the past month, we've been in contact and finally, yesterday, I was able to complete my portion of the requested favor.
I made and delivered dinner to a recently widowed sister in our valley.
Shayla lives too far away. And this is what she wanted to do for her friend.
What a blessing it was to me to be able to take part in this act of service.
...There are chances for work all around, just now. Opportunities right in our way...
It wasn't much. Rigatoni, french bread, caramel popcorn. But it was food. Ready to eat, homemade, delicious comfort food.
I often forget just how meaningful something so simple as a ready to eat meal is to those who are just so tired.
President Monson in April 2001 General Conference said, "There are feet to steady, hands to grasp, minds to encourage, hearts to inspire, and souls to save."
...Has anyone's burden been lighter today because I was willing to share?...
...When they needed MY help was I there?...
Thank you, Jason's Shayla, for allowing me this opportunity, this gentle reminder that what we do for each other really matters.
...doing good is a pleasure. A joy beyond measure. A blessing of duty and love...
