“Room At The Inn” by Linda Martin Andersen

“Poverty’s Price,” is an outstanding recent series of articles by Greg Barnes of “The Fayetteville Observer.”  http://www.fayobserver.com/special/poverty/

This is a season of generosity.  Yesterday, I had the pleasure of visiting Operation Inasmuch in Fayetteville, NC where homeless are family.  This newsletter celebrates the organization’s plan to expand services.  A shelter will be built.

As this calendar year ends, let’s celebrate our blessings and extend a hand to others.  May this season of generosity be lived and celebrated every day.

Will your calendar reflect participation in projects that touch your heart?  Have a family meeting and discuss how you can make a difference for others.

Writing Prompt:  Consider writing about “Room at the Inn” or about a time you helped someone or someone helped you.

Happy Holidays!  Thanks for visiting.  Come again soon and bring a friend.  Please leave a comment.  If you are 13 or under, please ask an adult to comment for you.   For more fun, sign up to follow my blog.  Thank you!

    Dear Linda,
    I really enjoyed hearing about the Inasmuch ministry for the homeless. They treat the homeless as God would if he were there in person. He is indeed there in spirit.

    Have a great day.
    Celebrate you
    Never Give Up

    • Thanks for your loving comments, Joan. I agree that here the homeless family is treated with respect and in a Godly manner. Carol called this post a challenge. I agree that it is a challenge for us to help others, in ways that we can.

  3. Compassion and charity are good things to practice anytime of year. The hope is for everyone to have a good quality of life. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to us all.

  4. We support many worthy causes. I hope we all live to see the day that everyone is housed, safe, well nourished and has affordable health care.
    We donated to an additional fund this year. First Books funds books for children in literacy programs and those livig in poverty. The program puts books into their hands that they take home and keep. I am very enthused about this program. I supported the Charlotte group. As a retired teacher, amother and grandmother, I know the difference books make in the lives o children.

  5. Glad you were able to visit. Did you write an article for the paper?
    Merry Christmas, Linda and Scotty 😘
