I saw this online and I hope it is meaningful to others as it is for me.
When a flashlight grows dim or quits working, do you just throw it away? Of course not. You change the batteries.
When a person messes up or finds themselves in a dark place, do you cast them aside? Of course not! You help them change their batteries. Some need AA...attention and affection; some need AAA...attention, affection, and acceptance; some need C....compassion; some need D...direction. And if they still don’t seem to shine...simply sit with them quietly and share your light.
I thank all of you who have shared your light with me and given me hope when I have not been able to find it on my own I pray you all know how appreciated you are.
