I have a wall decal that reads “Give yourself back to the world each day.” It is a daily reminder that we have an obligation to share our time, our talents, our good fortune and our presence with others in some way, every day.
The evening before Easter Sunday was the perfect time for us to visit the shelter and serve. Together with my two sister-in-laws, and our friends, we served homemade coleslaw, homemade macaroni and cheese, corn bread, sloppy joes and dessert to about thirty residents.
The third grade religious education class at church colored bookmarks that were given away with each meal.
This is one of our favorite ways to give a bit of ourselves back to our local community. It is in giving, that you truly receive.
