WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - I want to draw your attention to one of my favorite organizations - The Salvation Army.

The red kettles at the store fronts remind us of them during this season of giving, but every day of the year The Salvation Army offers help and hope to thousands of people.

It can be victims of disaster, addicts, or the homeless.  They are always there doing the work of the Lord - just as it is written in the Bible.

With the economy in the dumper, it's tough to be cheerful and think about giving.  Maybe some can't, but for most of us, all we need to do is count our many blessings.

In celebration of those blessings we can give in support of these people who are motivated by the love of God to meet human needs and offer hope.  That's The Salvation Army.

Give it a try.  Count your blessings - and see what happens.

That's my turn.  Now it's your turn.  To comment on this segment, or anything else, email me at
