Good morning, dear friends,

I believe that we each are called to help when we see where there is need. Any little thing helps. If each of us responded, the great and the small would be helped because we would each be responding to the capacity that we are able in that moment.

I believe that the Evil One interferes with our ability to see clearly the good that we do, especially the small things, thereby slowing us down and inhibiting our future actions.

I pray that, during the holy season of Lent, you all will find yourselves trusting more in yourself and in the capacity you have to give. It isn't necessarily the opportunities we miss that are as important as the opportunities that we see clearly and respond to.

Blessings, Annie

I think at times people only think in terms of money, but we have many, many things we can give. The gift of rides to the doctor or store, bags of groceries, just listening and crying with someone, or praying with them.

Yes Ginny. Too often we forget that the Lord asked us to give of our time as well. Money helps but sometimes a word, a gesture, an unexpected but much needed bit of assistance can make all the difference in the world. Literally.

great post. Often it is just a simple smile that is enough to help some one in need.
