How beautiful are those who help others, who gift their selves, their skills and their blessings upon the strengthening and healing of community, earth, families, and broken-hearted spirits! How beautiful are those who have their own struggles, their own doubts, and their own failings, yet who still answer the needs of mercy, kindness, and love with enduring generosity! How beautiful are those who live courageously, vulnerably, and steadfastly, though the way has many challenges, obstacles, and distractions! May we celebrate these beautiful ones, who bless life day and night! Amen.
