How It’s Meant to Be
A few hours ago I had both the privilege and blessing of attending the celebration of the Grand Opening of a Habitat for Humanity home for a wonderful family. The ceremony was short and sweet lasting only thirty minutes. Perfect timing for a sunny, 90+ degree day in June.
However, in that small amount of time, something amazing was accomplished. Churches of non similar creeds, businesses and non profits, people of different races, haves and have nots, straight laced reserved and tatted up folks came together to celebrate helping those in need. No one was paid to do the hard work required over the last several months to make this day possible. A zero interest mortgage will be offered and signed by a grateful mom who, along with her son, now have a place to call home.
As I sat and watched a community that’s come together to give, sacrifice and offer their services for a fellow human being I was humbled and convinced that this why we were created. This is how it’s meant to be.
