Silverado partners with U.S. VETS to bring the holidays to local veterans

Silverado Hospice North Houston launched a donation drive on Veteran's Day, November 11th which continued through Thanksgiving, ending on December 18th at the U.S. VETS' Holiday Party.

Silverado associates from The Woodlands, Cypresswood and Hospice North Houston gathered boxes of hygiene products, sheets, t-shirts, and socks to give the veterans at their holiday party.

On December 18th, Lueata Evenson of Silverado Hospice North delivered the items and worked with the U.S. VETS team to put together 350 Christmas packages for the 300-350 local veterans that attended the party. The party was a great success with Willie Tullis, a NFL veteran, starting the festivities. Several other local organizations either donated or joined in the day's activities, including a group of Girl Scouts who made 350 handwritten Christmas cards and handed them out!

Spirituality in its broadest sense is, quite simply, a way of life that reveals an awareness of the sacred and a relationship with the Holy One in the midst of our human frailty, brokenness and limitations.

  --Edward C. Sellner

 

To be faced with the loss of a loved one is to be engaged—or reengaged more intensely—with the experience of the spiritual. Questions of our loved one’s survival, of our own relationship to the spiritual world, of our possible communion with the dead now or after our own death—all come to us with new urgency. Surely if we can summon an awareness of the Holy One as a loving, caring reality, we shall be miles ahead! We can bear the uncertainty of answers to our questions if we feel that the One who is in charge cares for us all, grieves with us when we are sad, and wills our good. This has been the yearning, and the confidence, of believers through the ages.                 “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen,” said the apostle Paul in the Letter to the Hebrews. These things are no less real for being “not seen.”

 

 

--In the midst of my brokenness, O Holy One, may I be made newly aware of you.
