I cannot believe the overwhelming love and support that I saw yesterday.
When I went to help my neighbors yesterday, I expect it to just be me, my parents, and my neighbors. Man, was I wrong. There was not just us helping, but about 30 others. I think one group was from Coleman Methodist Church and the other one was from the West Midland Family Center. Now that’s Some Good News right there. We all worked between two and three hours and cleaned out the basement rather quickly. We removed furniture, cut out carpet, and transferred everything out of the basement. One team worked in the basement while the other team worked outside, transferring wheelbarrow loads to the road. There was plenty of help and plenty of love.
And now I’m going to do it again. my neighbor still needs his drywall taken out in the basement, and I’m going to help him and my dad with my brother. We may or may not get help. It doesn’t matter. What matters is that I’m able to love my neighbor by helping them in their time of need. Helping feels good.
If you haven’t done your part yet, there are plenty of opportunities to help. Join the Sanford Strong page on facebook and you’ll get plenty of answers if you’re looking for help. The Flood of Love is also a must join if you want to be connected with the church to help the emergency needs of different neighbors.
Hope everyone is having a good Memorial Day Weekend. Stay sane, clean, and healthy everyone!
Today’s high is going to be 80 degrees and the silver lining is being able to help my neighbors out again.
To those of you who like helping people, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.
Muse: I’m ready to help again. Just let me know when you’re ready and I’m off again. Let’s help our neighbors, everyone!
