Whatever you can do, DO! Maybe it's a $10 donation to the Red Cross, or funds to your local charity involved in the relief and recovery process. Maybe it's donating clothing and supplies to a local distribution center. Perhaps it's bringing a bag of food and water to a neighbor, or a total stranger. Whatever comes to your mind to do...Do It! Every little bit helps.
We're in this for the long haul, so think long-term. People will still need your help next week, and the weeks to come. Think about what you can do next week if you're not able to do anything this week. Think about making a difference in "one" person/family's life if thinking about the masses is just too much and too painful. Minister to the "One." Bring your focus in to the "One." As the lyracists reminds us, "If I can help 'somebody'...then my living shall not be in vain."
A kind word, a compassionate hug, and a sincere smile are all "little things" we all can do. Be generous with hugs, love and smiles. And continue to pray. Prayer works. God is still listening. He hears, and He will answer.
Stay encouraged, share a blessing (material and verbal) and keep the faith.
