Making a Difference

MSNBC has a spot on its TV news broadcast called "Making a difference." We need to remember there are MANY "good" people out there trying to serve and help their fellow mankind. Today it was a lady...well the story goes back 29 years. She is with her young son fighting cancer in some bus or train station, her son is weak from chemotherapy, she props him up on a suitcase. A homeless man comes and tells her she needs help. He carries her suitcases to where she needed to be. Shortly afterward she sees another homeless man shivering in a ...nothing much sleeping bag. She decided to to recycle clothes and materials and sew together, one stitch at a time, warm sleeping bags for the homeless on cold nights. Wow! What she started 29 year ago "We are our brothers keeper one day at at a time" work, has groups doing the same work in EVERY State and around the world.

Now that is someone who has made a difference.

Oh her son is still alive and helping her.

So for all out there around the world, making a difference one stitch at a time or whatever you do to serve and help the needy, the poor, the homeless, the orphan, the widow, the sick.......God KNOWS you and He will remember. He THANKS you for we are our brothers keeper. Jesus said, "....In as much as you have given a cut of water to these least, you have done it unto Me!."
