Love Your Enemy love All.. H.O.W and W.H.Y

Love All


This is Christmas Day!

I see these pictures of these sweet children.

These children are hurt, sick and dying of starvation. We ask ourselves how and why?

This is our world.

Then I find a glitter of hope!

In the middle of all this hurt and chaos, there really is hope.

Jesus is our hope!

But we have to start with ourselves to help. We have to help others.

Look around you. What can you do? What can I do?

I remember what a good friend told me a long time ago, get your eyes off yourself, put them on Jesus, help others, you will forget your problems.

How true that is!

I started doing for others, and I quit complaining. And when I started complaining again and I get lazy I remember what she told me. Then I feel so ashamed.

I start getting selfish again!

Why do I do that? I ask myself so many times.

Sometimes I feel like I am hitting my head against a wall. I feel like I cannot do anything right.

I fail so many times.

Then I have some great news!

Hope returns!

I find out my son and his wife that live in Mexico, starting collecting clothes and toys last month for children in hospitals etc.

They starting asking friends, everyone on their street and explained what they wanted to do.

My son said the response has been wonderful.

There are so many clothes and toys that they spent their Christmas going from hospital to hospital, and there are so many left over. Their friend that works at an orphanage in Matamours said that they will deliver the rest to them tomorrow.

Come all you faithful

I am so proud of my son and his beautiful wife.

I am so proud of all their caring friends and neighbors!

It gives me hope in society, that people really do care!

What a great Christmas present to know my children are so caring.

I thank God for each blessing..

God Bless each one of you!

May God keep you in His arms!

Keep the Faith!

Love your enemy, love others. Let’s have compassion.

I thank you all that have contributed in the H.O.W. movement on the Hub.. Thanks to so many hubbers, but especially Bill Holland that started it! Bill, you really are an amazing person!

      The Lord has been gracious to remove enemies from my path. The Lord has also blessed me with the talents to be a blessing to my fellow man. Thank you for this article and guiding me to the Page article.

      Your son and daughter-in-law are doing great things for the Lord, but I have a feeling that they may have learned this compassion and love from your modelling. A lovely Christmas story.

      Voted up and beautiful. Such a wonderful story Debbie. Your son and daughter-in-law are great people for doing something like this. If such things happened the world over and people all reached out in need what a wonderful world this would be. Hope all your wishes and dreams come true in 2013! Passing this on.
