Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.Today is the kick-off for the #LightTheWorld Christmas initiative. The idea is that each day until Christmas, we will be inspired by someway that Jesus provided service to others, and we will do a similar service.
My youngest daughter has a lot of compassion, and is concerned about the homeless people we see around town. We decided that to start our participation with #LightTheWorld, we would assemble kits that we could give to people we encountered who were begging for food or money. The kits were simple, but hopefully met some needs.

Inside a gallon-sized plastic bag, we placed: a pair of heavy, dark socks; a bottle of water; applesauce; granola bars; and lip balm.

How will you lift a burden today?
