No one could have ever imagined the impact of what the coronavirus has done to our lives and the world around us. The quarantines and self-isolation only gives a glimpse of what aloneness feels like. But every setback is also an opportunity to recover and a chance to become stronger. We have learned to cope and deal with difficult and unexpected developments and it has lead us to use skills that we didn’t know we possessed and has given us a passion to move forward despite the darkness the viral epidemic has caused.
This hindrance in our lifestyle hopefully has moved on and we have realigned ourselves back to our routines that bring us comfort. Yet many have been forced to step back and rebuild themselves. Many have lost jobs and unemployment figures have reached unprecedented highs. Many businesses with storied histories, no longer exist, creating a new search for life and meaning.
It may be the closest to homelessness and insecurity that we have ever sensed before. Insecurities if even for a short while lead us to reevaluate once again truly what is priority in our life and what we can and can’t live without.
It’s a plight the needy struggle with every day. The path forward is never perfectly straight and unhindered. You’ve encountered doubts, fears and challenges before and successfully worked your way through them. But there are times when a helping hand, an encouraging word reminds us how we can effectively cope with the difficulties that hinder us at this moment.
In the tough times of life are the seeds of great beauty, joy and fulfillment. It’s an opportunity for us to rise above our selfishness and make a change for the better, helping those that have stumbled along life’s path to take one positive step.
We are His instruments of outreach and not forsaking those in need. The Honor Card is a marvelous way to recognize a friend or family member and at the same time impacting a local outreach agency to support the needy and homeless this season.
Blessing to you this Holiday Season,
Send a $5 Honor Card to a friend or family member this season honoring them with a gift to Hospitality House. 100% of contributions support our housing, hunger relief and homeless prevention programs in seven NC counties.
