A Call Heard, A Call Answered

There is tragedy in this world. Some days it seems like all I read or see is a constant blitz of negativity and sadness. And then, I read an article of someone doing something so kind and so amazing I have to pause and thank God that some people or companies in this world are out there and they ARE listening. You can read the full article here.

But essentially, a cancer stricken girl is granted a request to see the Disney/Pixar movie "Up". She can't go to the theater because of her advanced condition. So what does Disney/Pixar do? They send some staff over with a DVD copy of the movie to preview it in her home. They also brought tons of memorabilia.
I often heard the companies and systems are unfeeling, sometimes even seen as evil. Not this company. They received a call and passed it up the chain and answered the call. They didn't have to answer by the way. But someone decided to listen.
Who in your life or community right now is crying out for some help?
And is there anything within your sphere of influence that you can help bring some joy into some one's life?
If so, WHAT IS STOPPING YOU? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING ON? A person invitation?
Friends, I see the faith as the joyful abundance of God's love shared through us to the world. Go in peace and go with God...and oh yeah, get GOING!
