"You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind. And, love your neighbor as yourself."
Luke 10:27
This scripture is found within the story of the good Samaritan. The Bible is full of wonderful parables that we can use in our daily lives, and they help to illustrate moral lessons that should be common sense. Today is a special day here at Wesley House. From 10: a.m. until 2:00 p.m., we are having our "Fun Festival of Health, Help and Healing," located on our Playground for Jesus. We love to give back to the community and we are hoping to reach many folks that may need a little kindness and support right now. The main reasons we are dedicating our Saturday to this cause is to increase literacy, help folks to become more aware of their health issues and to update them on the services we offer here at Wesley House Community Center. There will be storytelling and book reading, games and prizes, book give-aways for all ages, plus some nursing students will be doing free blood pressure and diabetes checks. Come grab you a bag of popcorn and take advantage of this gorgeous weather. Walk around the playground, visit with folks and, if you'd like, we are selling our new CD, "The HymnSinger" and one-of-a-kind pins made especially for Wesley House (both the CD and the pins are $15 each, with all the proceeds donated directly back to Wesley House).

This past Tuesday, I had the privilege of spending some quality time with two very special ladies. My day began as usual, taking applications for holiday assistance -- however, my first client and I had a lengthy discussion regarding reading the Bible to help one cope with life during rather difficult times. I had pulled her file before bringing her into my office, so as we began the application process, I asked if the household still consisted of herself and two children (last year, she had just given birth to a son). She told me that at three months old, she had left the child with her aunt while she ran to the grocery. Upon her return, she went to the crib and her son had stopped breathing. They both attempted C.P.R. until the paramedics arrived, but the child was gone. She stated that soon after the funeral, she began a Bible study group at her church, which gave her a feeling of hope and justification for the death of her beloved child. To have just lost a child about six months ago, she was an inspiration for everyone that was fortunate enough to spend a little time with her.
Later in the day, another lady came in and I remembered her from a couple of years earlier. As we chatted about her life, she informed me that she had re-married and had legally adopted his two children. Then, wouldn't you know it, she became pregnant -- she and her husband prayed for strength to get through another small child entering their home (they were going to have two children in diapers, plus a five year old that was autistic). They spoke with their minister and he suggested they get into the scriptures to help them maneuver the upcoming months of upheaval in their home.
While reading my Bible later that evening, I could see how the Bible is considered to be one of the most inspired works ever compiled. Think about it -- the prophets and apostles, in what they said and wrote, were guided by the Holy Spirit in a manner higher than any men of their times. It is a source of hope for anyone willing to open their hearts and allow the message to fulfill their every need. I know that since I began reading it on a daily basis, my life has been changed and I challenge all of you to try it yourself. There are so many Bible guides available these days, so do a little research and decide which is the right path for you to follow. Don't just take my word for it -- consider the two ladies mentioned above and how God pulled them through some rough times, and all they had to do was sit down in a comfortable spot and open the greatest book of all!
