Selah's Angels: (a random act of kindness)...

let sisterly love continue; 
be not forgetful to entertain strangers; 
for thereby, some have entertained angels unawares

~ ~ ~

Four years ago, the world lost a dynamic 39-year-old earth angel, who happened to be one of my best friends, to Stage 4 breast cancer.  Doris was a wonderful soul, who did all she possibly could to help those less fortunate without seeking glory or anything in return.  She just did it.  Her strong, enduring spirit guided her to show love to all others, regardless of their circumstances, and my spirit couldn't resist being drawn closer to hers.  (i miss you Doris).  If one could make wishes, I would wish that Selah's Angels was established when she was sick - we would have showered her in love sooooo much.

Years since Doris journeyed on from this plane, several of my close friends have been touched by cancer.  I felt especially broken deep within when I learned that my lovely friend BJ had been diagnosed with a terminal form of a rare cancer.  While medical doctors are unable to provide her with a humanly cure to her illness, I have witnessed her faith provide her with all the spiritual cure she needs...and she is truly dignified and at peace - you can feel it in her aura.  Still, she is a lighthouse emanating the brightest of light to dark corners and over foggy, rough seas.  She actually told me that the love she has received from so many of you in the form of greeting cards helps sustain her soul and has rejuvenated her spirit.  I may have told you that we touched her so deeply that she decided to joined us in sending notes of encouragement via snail mail to those in need.  Now that's what Selah's Angels are all about...i am so thankful for all you do

The list of recipients of our loving kindness has grown tremendously over the past two years.  I receive emails on a regular basis requesting that we send someone in need a little extra touch of love and we are happy to oblige.  Though most recipients are elderly or living with some form of illness, we also send notes of encouragement to those who are simply experiencing other challenges in life (and from what i hear, it has made all the difference). 

So now friends, it's time once again for Selah's Angels to spread their wings and perform another collective random act of kindness by sending one anonymous greeting card (handmade or store bought) to a sister in need.  No future commitment is required in this shower of love.  If you are interested in participating, please leave a comment here or email me at necessaryroom@gmail.com.  

*All greeting cards should be mailed before July 6, 2011*  
give thanks.  one love.
