Love, During This Virus Time..!

Two members from my housing society have decided to lend a helping hand to those in the colony, the elderly, sick and differently abled who are finding it hard to manage in today’s lockdown. They have identified twelve such families and even as I write, they are going from house to house, keeping the physical distance required and offering help!
This is an act of love!
Love goes round alright, oh yes it does, as this little story below shows:
Stan heard in church about a Denver, Colorado (USA) family facing a rather bleak Christmas holiday. Medical bills robbed them of any extras; they would not even have a tree. Stan’s pastor asked him if he would get them that tree.
So Stan and his son Jay headed up into the Colorado Rockies in the family pickup. However, the truck skidded off the icy road and hit a boulder that shattered the windshield. Jay was showered by glass slivers and suffered from shock and crash trauma. Stan was uninjured, though somewhat shaken.
Cars sped past that day — maybe 200 of them. Only two people stopped to help. A gentle, dark-haired woman took the boy into her car to comfort him while her husband and another man helped Stan move his truck off the road. Then this kind couple drove father and son to Stan’s home and quietly left without identifying themselves.
Stan was discouraged that he was unable to cut a tree for the family that his church was trying to help. But later in the month, the pastor asked if Stan might deliver a food basket to the same unfortunate family.
He found the house, but he could hardly find his speech when the door opened. For standing there before him was the same couple who had stopped to help him on the mountain road when so many others had passed him by.
There is a strange power in love. Some folks may call it an amazing coincidence. Others might say it was divine providence. But I choose to think that love has its own power, and that it goes round and comes back to roost on those who make an effort to spread it.
And when it comes round and you don’t recognize it, here is what it looks like:
It has the hands to help others.
It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy.
It has the eyes to see misery and want.
It has the ears to hear sighs and sorrows of men.
That my friends, is what love looks like! I wonder what you are going to do during this time, to have this love coming back to you?

  1. Beautiful. Love is what God has sown in our hearts not to keep it to ourselves but to spread it around. God bless you Bobby
