As I traveled on Memorial Day, I was listening to news radio. In between the news they were having little clips about what people were doing on that day. During one clip they shared about some families who were spending the day helping people who had been effected by a tornado. They gave their day over to helping others instead spending time with friends. A boy who sounded about 9 or 10 was interviewed. He said that helping others was better than playing games with his friends!! It is amazing how happy the boy seemed. It was good to hear that kids are being taught to help/serve others.
When we help others, we encourage healing and joy in a situation that may not be so good. We are God's hands reaching out to those in need when we reach out and help others. In turn, we feel joy and maybe healing from our work.
Have you ever experienced joy or healing from helping others? Please share your stories.
I enjoy yoga as it brings peace to my life. Teaching yoga has brought joy to my life and given me a chance to encourage others in learning yoga.
