If You Are Lonely

"If you are lonely, seemingly without meaningful occupation, the best advice I can give you is to volunteer at least part of your time. It is a tremendously rewarding experience. For someone who has been left alone, breaking away from your house, your worries, your self-absorption is absolutely vital. Doing something beneficial for someone else will be even more beneficial for you. The first steps may not be easy, but it is well worth making the effort to find your niche." (Italics added). 

"From Grief to Gladness -- Coming Back from Widowhood," by Jane Griz Jones, page 49. 

Unfortunately this book is out of print, but you might still find copies at online used book sellers or a library. The copy I'm reading is borrowed from my church library. I don't usually pull a quote to post on this blog, but felt God wanted me to today. Are you the one He is speaking to about volunteering? A comment about your experiences might be a great help for others! Email me at or click on the Post A Comment box and add your thoughts.

Have a beautiful and sacred weekend,
