In Times Like These

I know that many of us are left with hollow feelings as we read the news each day. It can feel overwhelming and downright depressing as we hear day after day of yet another tragedy. Another crime. Another source of pain.

I recognize that so many are questioning, where do we go from here? How can we help?

So, might I suggest starting where each of us are at --- right now. Many are capable of donating time, talents, and resources to those in need - do such. Many of us simply need a message of hope - seek those, share those. And many of us are wondering what comes next.

Well, next, we serve. And we lift. And we love.

We reach out to those close to us and we love them. And we show gratitude for them. And we grieve as we need to, and then we allow ourselves to seek and feel joy once more.

If you, like me, are struggling to feel joy in times like these, take heart. Though there is undoubtedly evil in this world, there is more good. There will always be more good.

So, be that good. Share that light. Build others up - willingly and lovingly. Continue to be kind. Continue to believe that there are great days ahead of us regardless of any tragedy we may face. Never surrender to the darkness.
And don't give up on this world just yet.


I believe in people.

I believe in the inherent goodness that exists in each of us.

I believe in a Heavenly Father who loves each and every one of His children.

I believe in hope for the future.

I believe in peaceful days and peaceful hearts.

I will never stop believing that there will always be more good in this world than evil.

And that's what gets me through times like these.
