Write to Joyce
They have made it a desolation.
It mourns to me, being desolate.
The whole land is made desolate,
because no one cares.
-Jeremiah 12:11, WEB
There are times when the whole world seems like an empty desert. Amidst millions of people, there is none to find, none to give what is needed.
People go about their daily lives as though they could no longer stop and make a difference somewhere else. Everyone goes about trying to accomplish something without being able to do what really needs to be done.
If only people can start caring again. If only we could notice those begging for our attention, crying for our compassion.
We are human beings after all, brothers and sisters to one another. We have been given eyes to see, hands to reach out to others, hearts to bear one another’s pain.
If we could only realize how great our opportunity is to make a difference in the life of another, to make this world a bit better than it used to be, maybe we can be more in touch with our souls, and maybe we can finally realize that we are not meant to be alone.
“I pray that you will understand the words of Jesus, “Love one another as I have loved you.” Ask yourself “How has he loved me? Do I really love others in the same way?” Unless this love is among us, we can kill ourselves with work and it will only be work, not love. Work without love is slavery.” – Mother Teresa
