Doing For Others

This morning I’m quilting another guild donation quilt. They were pieced by other people.  This is the fifth one since I started these a week ago. I do not love them, and I do not love working on them.

But THIS: when the world feels dark and upsetting, there is nothing better than to DO something for someone else. If you feel discomfort with the world as it is today, DO something for someone else. One of my favorite quotations is from the Reverend King: “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”


LOVE is shown by doing. DO for someone else.
Drive out darkness. Drive out hate.
Choose love.
