I'm drawn to people who exhibit love through their actions and count myself blessed when I'm surrounded by friends who walk the walk of love. My friend, Russ, has been involved with a team of volunteersfromSaddleback Church who serve breakfast, donate clothes, offer friendship, provide prayers, and deliver the word to the residents of Evergreen Motel one Saturday a month. When Russ invited me to participate and document the volunteers serving Thanksgiving to the residents I was on it! Isn't that what love is about? Serving others without expecting anything in return. And isn't Thanksgiving about being grateful for what we have, where we are, and serving the community with our graciousness? That's what I strive for in my personal life and I'm humbled by the people I've met at the motel.
May we all have a heart to serve others during this holiday season.
I donated my favorite gym bag that has been with me for so many years. I'm happy to see it will be put to good use.
