And So It Continues

I don't know about you, but I heard a lot more stories about generosity this Christmas season than in years past. I think people have a greater appreciation for what they have, and a greater idea of those around them who have less - at least I'd like to think that.

My first thought when I woke up this morning was, OK... now what? Many people were given a special gift to help make their Christmas special, especially for the kids. But what about today? What about tomorrow? The same person who couldn't afford coats for their kids for yesterday may not be able to afford food today. The same person who wanted to bless their child with a toy to keep the magic of Christmas alive is the same person who can't supply their family with the basic necessities this week and next.

Just because Christmas is over, doesn't mean we can stop loving, stop giving, stop sharing, or stop caring. Keep your eyes, ears and hearts open and allow God to lead you to those in need.
