Dear reader, Izzy has started an Instagram account to sell her artwork, all proceeds going to the UNHCR (United Nations Refugee Agency) to aid the refugee crisis. The account is called art.for.refugees and you are welcome to follow it and share this invitation with others.
I feel a bit weird going on at length, as it feels like an unintentional pat on the back, but I want to express my abiding belief a major reason we are on this earth is to serve others, and that one of life's greatest meanings is to be found in those moments when we lay aside our personal cares to show love, give help, refrain from criticism or judgement, and reach out to lift someone in his or her hour of need.
A thought I'd never fully considered but which touches me deeply: "The Lord not only goes before our faces and sends angels to serve with us, but He also feels the comfort we give others as if we had given it to Him." Henry B. Eyring
Wishing you a beautiful day.
