These two dear people are husband and wife.
Last week my hubby took them fishing.
Everyone was excited they both caught fish.
Yet the comments which filtered home had little to do with the catch.
“She just served him the entire time, ” my husband said.
You see our friend is nearly deaf, and he struggles with getting around so doing things on the boat was far from easy.
His wife helped him at every turn.
She did it all with a smile.
It was obvious she never felt put upon or frustrated.
It was her gift to serve her husband.
How often such gifts are missed.
In our me centered world it seems so many things are being misrepresented.
The joys of serving others at my own sacrifice is beyond anything I’ve ever done for myself.
The blessings of seeing another person be helped or advanced at ones on loss is often misunderstood.
I see it with children every day.
The children who serve others, take their turn and look out for what is best for those around them are the ones who ard happier, have more friends, and are successful.
Those who are constantly out to be first at everyone else’s cost, are loud and demanding are often the most unhappy and least welcome by their peers.
So, as I start my day I’m praying to be able to give the gift of service to those around me.
