“All I ever wanted was to reach out and touch another human being not just with my hands but with my heart.”
― Tahereh Mafi,
It is during this time of the year, where many souls are living a life that is essentially quite the opposite of what is depicted by the media. Millions are living in isolation, by choice and often-time crisis circumstances, people are surviving alone at an alarming rate that it now can be considered a national risk.
Our loving Creator, has and will always have a special concern, an additional application of applied Grace to the elderly; the weak, the physical/mentally disabled, the widows and their children. Yet, our culture now has enabled essentially, each age group to become impacted by isolation. Each of us must become aware of this on-Growing problem, while developing practical ways to somehow offset the negativity that is associated with this pressing and growing concern.

This matter of aloneness is a major concern not only in the spiritual wellness of soul-care, but in the practical day by day living of those who are suffering in isolation, and the paramount negative relational impact it has on human relations in general.
All of us are and will be impacted by this reality.
What To Do?
“I will do my part to erode Isolation in my World Challenge.”
My personal spiritual commitment to this matter of isolation during this traditional Holiday season, is for each reader of this blog, [those who reside in the Georgia area] to communicate with me, anyone that you personal know is suffering in a serious condition/situation of isolationism. Please contact me via, email: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, with their personal story, name/address/phone #, and I will use the time that God has granted me, to visit them and connect with them in a loving and meaningful way.
Those who are outside of my reach, I challenge you to take the “I will do my part to erode Isolation in my World Challenge.” How, by following my lead, and offering yourself, your family and your special God-fearing friends to join with you in reaching out and loving those who are living in the shadows.
“Let me tell you this: if you meet a loner, no matter what they tell you, it’s not because they enjoy solitude. It’s because they have tried to blend into the world before, and people continue to disappoint them.”
