Giving to Others

These days in our life on this planet, so much is happening to add stress to our lives. I don't want to add to that so I won't make a list...cause you already know...but here is something encouraging. In Denver, there is a Ministry that gives to the homeless in our community. St. Francis Center, which is celebrating 25 years of helping our community, offers assistance during the day. It offers things that folks without a home generally don't have access to: a place to use as an address for job applications, a place to receive mail and phone calls, a place to get a shower and some clean clothes...a place to be recognized and called by name...the list goes on.

My husband and I saved our extra pennies this year, bought a table to attend their Silver Anniversary Gala and invited some friends to join us. Although we invited everyone through a phone call, we also wanted to send a formal invitation. So that's what I'm sharing today.

So during these challenging times, maybe you can think of something you can do to give to someone who needs it even more than we do...then share that work with me or with others.

Have a great week...eli
