Then I was introduced to the Bread of Life. As a result, I’m no longer crippled by the super powers I thought I had…those powers that determined need in a split – second. Introduction to the BOL gave me a more accurate compass to direct the use of my resources to help address the problems of homelessness, hunger and hope. It took some great people to help me overcome this crippling disability… this disability I described as super powers earlier. When I met the people of BOL…the people giving and the people receiving, my life and my perspective were changed. My time is no longer spent making split – second, isolated decisions. I no longer spend time recounting what I have given; rather I spend time thinking about how I can give more. I no longer worry if my contribution will be wasted; rather, I think about how the gift I transfer to others will be an investment in the betterment of humanity.
I’m thankful to the Bread of Life…The people that work everyday to impact humanity and the people that gratefully receive the gifts of an extended hand of love. Both groups have taught me that it is possible that I do have a super power….The power to love and the power to participate in the LOVE Revolution.
Thank you BOL!
