Since it’s Thanksgiving I thought the person and book that I’m going to share with you would be most appropriate. Mother Teresa. Those who know of her please smile. But first, I’d like to share a few tidbits of my life and how it coincides with the Mother Teresa.
My mother is an evangelist and when I was younger I used to attend convalescents homes with her and help feed, wash, change, sing and read to the elderly. I also used to accompany her downtown when she would go to feed the homeless, give them money and provide them with bible tracks and prayer.
There were even a few times I would wake up in the morning and find a few less fortunate’s in the living room, because of course they stayed the night. For some reason that never bothered me though, I guess because she taught me at an early age to always help when I can in any way that I can when the Lord allows. And though those values of sharing, giving, loving and helping are still with me today I’ve always wondered why she wanted to do that? So I asked why? She explained when you dedicate your life to the Lord it’s the spirit of the Lord that you are guided by.
My mother always talked about Mother Teresa and the work she did. So as I got older I learned more about her. Mother Teresa was as saint who dedicated her life to God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and He guided her to share her love, help with charities, service the poor, provide prayer. She was always one to explain the value of family, the role of suffering and the dignity of every human being. To find out more about Mother Teresa the book is called Mother Teresa; Her essential Wisdom and if you’re interested, her website is www.motherteresa.org.
I want you all to have a Happy Thanksgiving and remember if you can help anywhere please do so because not everyone has it so good. Please help by donating to California Crusaders Newspaper; toys, food, clothes and/or monetary gifts are suitable to help the less fortunate.
Thank you Mother Teresa and mom for your love and contributions all of these years.
