Look for the helpers

My husband and sons were in Orlando over the weekend visiting my in-laws.  I love it that he took the boys out looking for a way to help.  They hung out together while waiting in line for dad to give blood.

“Look for the helpers.  You will always find people who are helping.”  ~Mr. Fred Rogers

I’m so sad my kids are growing up in a world with so much hate and violence, but I’m hopeful, and I’m thankful for God’s words to get us through - words that teach us to love, be merciful, and show compassion....   

These are a couple of our family’s fave verses:   

Don't let evil defeat you, but defeat evil by doing good. Romans 12:21 (ERV)

So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples. John 13:34-35 (NLT)
