I am not a big fan of social media but I do have a Facebook page mainly to keep track of what my kids are doing. A lot of reflective posts show up on my page and I might skim through some of them but mostly I ignore them. A few weeks ago, however, I came upon a post that made me stop and think. I would like to share that post with you. (There was no
information given as to who wrote it so I am unable to credit the author).
“When a flashlight grows dim or quits working, do you just throw it away? Of course not. You change the batteries. When a person messes up or finds themselves in a dark place, do you cast them aside? Of course not! You help them change their batteries.
Some need AA…attention and affection; some need AAA…attention, affection, and acceptance; some need C…compassion; some need D…direction. And if they still don’t seem to shine…simply sit with them quietly and share your light.”
As we head into the new year, maybe as a New Year’s Resolution, we can stock up on our “batteries” and reach out to help someone who needs recharging or a light to share.
May God bless you all in many special ways in 2022!
