In the Hallmark movie, When Angels Came to Town, Peter Faulk stars as Max, the angel of many disguises
Max and a female angel are in town to help a young man that cares nothing about family values and is trying to save his fathers blown glass ornament business and he cares nothing for family values.
There is also a young woman, struggling to make manager position in a mom and pop store that is going out of business because of the big discount store that opened. She desperately needs the promotion because she wants to adopt her 12 year old brother who has been in foster homes since both parents died in a car accident when they were very young.
While the sister is giving a coat, scarf and boots to a homeless woman her brother runs away, and when she is on TV asking him to come home, she states the whole meaning of the movie in one sentence. This quote is the reason for my blog post.
"Do what you can when you can to make someone feel better."
The comment made me think of the golden rule. , Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Unforunately, there is a new golden rule. I saw it on a church sign this week.
"Whoever has the Gold, Makes the Rules." Forget others, think ME
I will rest my case with a few quotes from Mother Teresa
"If you can't feed a hundred people, then just feed one.”
“Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.”
“We cannot do great things on this Earth, only small things with great love.”
“It is not the magnitude of our actions but the amount of love that is put into them that matters.”
“One of the greatest diseases is to be nobody to anybody.”
BE SOMEONES ANGEL THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON
