Theme: Popcorn & Movies
I received a phone call yesterday from one of our church members. She was calling to start a prayer chain on behalf of another member. Their beloved grandson had committed suicide. Another young person, lost to the darkness.
I don’t know. I don’t know why, but I know it’s a darkness that must cause great pain and suffering. It is a darkness that sucks the life out of our young people, destroying all vestiges of hope and reason. And I don’t know the solution. Darkness pours into the cracks of their broken vessels, and shatters all that remains.
But I know two things – yesterday a young man LOST his life. And yesterday at the hospital, I held the door open for an elderly gentleman in a wheelchair, headed to chemotherapy as he tried everything imaginable – and unimaginable – to EXTEND his life.
So – let’s keep working at it, you and I. Let’s keep trying to make a difference with a kind word, or a kind action toward others. You never know if it is the one spark of light in their heavy world of darkness. Ensure people around you feel valued and engaged. LISTEN with your heart and see their needs with clear eyes. Are you disengaged with siblings, parents or children? Be the change. Step up and reconnect. Forgive. Forget. Be the light. Start today. Be Awesome!
The theme for our monthly blog train is Movies and Popcorn. I love movies. I love going to the theatre, getting a bag of popcorn and a cherry coke, and holding hands with my hubby. It’s our way to continue “dating”, and being sweethearts.
Here is the color palette:
