Our own rough edges become smooth as we

help a friend smooth her edges.

~~ Sue Atchley Ebaugh

Take note today, of all the opportunities you have to offer a helping

hand to another person. Notice too the many times a friend,

or even a stranger, reaches out to us in a helpful way.

The opportunities to contribute to life's flow are unending.

To live means sharing one another's space, dreams, sorrows; contributing our ears

to hear, our eyes to see, our arms to hold, our hearts to love. When we close

ourselves off from each other, we have destroyed the vital contribution we

each need to make and to receive in order to nurture life.

We each need only what the other can give. Each person

you meet today needs your special contribution.

Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I

learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content.

~~ Helen Keller


For the LORD takes pleasure in his people;

he adorns the humble with salvation.
