Whenever you did it for any of my people, no matter how unimportant they seemed, you did it for me. Matthew 25:40

A TV promotional running recently says that if everyone cared for others the world would be a much better, gentler place.

One day while my husband and I were looking for a new house, we got a call from a friend from church, saying, “The house across the street is for sale and going to a realtor tomorrow, so if you would be interested, come over today.” We did, and we’ve been neighbors for about 17 years now.

That’s just an example of how this special woman thinks of, and cares for, others. She has opened her home to friends who needed a place to stay for several months between homes, welcomed visiting speakers and leaders into her home overnight or longer. She hosts all kinds of meetings and get-togethers in her home, takes meals to the sick or bereaved, makes meals for our youth. She started and leads a weekly women’s Bible Study group. She directs our handbell choir, sings in our adult choir, comforts those who need comfort.

She is a mother of three, grandmother of eight, and has attended every grandchild’s high school and college graduation, even though they have taken place in Hawaii, Colorado, Virginia, Florida, and California. 

Always gracious and loving, Hospitality, thy name is Jackie (and her wonderful supportive husband Jim) George!
