(Next SASS ... August 24th)
On August 17th, Team "Metatron" (Ramona, Nellene & Jerri) came together. Fran joined us in spirit for ourthirty-second SASS!!! It's been a truly miraculous first year, and we are so thankful that we are able to come together each week to do what we do...
Our stops for this week included:
Thoughts and Reflections.... We're not alone. Starlight Angels is not alone in our desire and passion to spread the Love, Light and compassion of our Creator. After finishing at one of our stops, we were waiting at a red light. We see someone get out of the car in front of us, open the trunk, and hand a care package to some of the guys that were standing on the corner. I can't begin to tell you how excited we were to be the "seers" of this act of kindness. We were clapping our hands... shouting for joy... cheering these strangers on!!
Why is that??? Why did this simple act make us so happy... just to witness it??? It's because Love is our nature. Caring for each other is as necessary as the air that we breathe. It's when we fall out of sync with this reality that we become unhappy and feel unfulfilled. What a blessing for me... to be allowed to be the "seer"... to be the witness... and to experience that joy and happiness. Blessed be!!!
To that effect, with every hug I give and every hug I receive... with each smile and every hand I see waving at me while I wait to cross at the light, I move to a place where the "giver" and "receiver" are one in the same. So, when I get chided by Rick for sneaking away before he can donate two Sunday papers to us, I realize that I am not doing him a favor. I am denying him the same joy that I experience.
There is one stop that touches my heart for some reason. It's the same group of people. They're always cheery for the most part. There were more people at that corner than usual. We were giving meals in a flurry. I stopped and looked up and saw that young man again... the one from this past winter that had no socks. He's not there every week, but when he is, he always gives us the biggest smile. He waited on the side by the bushes... like he wasn't sure if he was going to get a meal or not. I called, "baby boy"... and motioned him over... and made sure that he knew that he would not be left out... that we loved him.
This update only reflects a tiny window of the Starlight Angels Ministries, Inc vision... and the work that goes on behind the scenes for every SASS that happens. My grandson wears a shirt with the statement "Small but Mighty". I think this describes us very well. We may be a small group, but the effect is Mighty... ONLY because we serve The Creator of Love...
"The Universe must obey at the behest of Love".
