We have entered into one of the most challenging times of the year. I believe it is divided into many distinct categories. It is important to remember that not everyone is excited by the holiday season. There are those battling the loss of loved ones that make it too painful to celebrate with memories every which way they turn. There are those who have traumatic pasts that don't allow them to sit in the joy all around them for their emotions are painful and numb. There are those who are alone; they don't have the partner, the life dreamed or the perfect picture that this time of years presents.
So, whatever your situation BE LIGHT. When you walk by each and every person this season, take a moment to pause. BE LIGHT. The person who is happiest with the brightest smile and always there for others is likely the one in the most pain. BE LIGHT. If you are going through your day and you haven't seen or heard from a friend or loved one, go check on them, they are not ok. BE LIGHT. If someone is asking for help on the street, don't judge, you don't know their story today. BE LIGHT. If there is a way to offer some of what you have through a church, don't wait, those programs are more life-giving than ever. BE LIGHT. We have an opportunity to live this mentality all year long. But this time of year is more dire and important than any other. The saying is truer today than it ever has been, we don't know anyone's story. So...BE LIGHT.
