With so much hate in the world these days, I wonder what Jesus would say to it. He all of us to prefer one another’s company, not hate each other’s presence! Sometimes, it’s like I’m losing my faith in humanity. Then again, it takes just one instance of good in the world, and I feel like I can hold out longer. That’s what happened when I was helping out the local homeless shelter, collecting donations for the coming winter. I was so happy! I saw folks donating all kinds of warm clothes, and even some portable space heaters. Those are always useful around here, seeing as the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C system is constantly on the fritz. I knew that cash would need to be raised if we were to repair the heating system. So, I had a talk with the local Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C company about our situation. These people were unquestionably nice! Not only did they tell me it could be done, but that they had a program in place for situations just like this: repair programs, just for folks who couldn’t totally afford Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C system repairs and regular maintenance. Having explained to me how much the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C repair would cost, I was totally blown away. We really did save a fortune! We still had managed to raise enough cash to cover the cost at normal price, so we were able to use the extra funds for other repairs in the shelter. It was nice to see so much good come out of a scary situation.
