Village Hero

There are still some heroes around!  If you take your time to help an animal that is in distress then you are a hero.  A few nights ago a man heard a dog yelping desperately in the distance.  It was late in the evening and bitterly cold outside but this wonderful man took the time to go out and see what might be wrong.  He had to go quite a ways into the but he found a dog stuck up to its face in the mud and water of a freezing creek.  Emergency crews had to be called in to help remove the dog.  unbeknownst to them all at the time was the fact that this poor creature was blind and deaf. My heart sings with joy that this man was kind enough to take the time and go see what some yelping in the distance was about.  He was willing to be an instrument of God.  How many of us are willing to take time to notice what is really going on around us and step out of our selflessness to help another in distress?  We all need to slow down and be willing to listen and then respond if the call comes.  It takes a village to raise all of us.
