Change your routine for others this holiday

Can you imagine living the same day over and over?

In the film, “Groundhog Day,” Bill Murray’s character, “Phil” has to relive the same day over and over on Groundhog Day in a small town in Pennsylvania.

The film, set in the small town of Punxsutawney, Penn., and chronicles the February day in which the town groundhog sees his shadow or not.

I’m sure all have seen the film, and know that as every day passes, Phil learns new skills and different things about the town itself.

At first, Phil was learning new skills to impress his producer, but in the end, he comes to appreciate the small town and all of its inhabitants.

I write all of this because there are some people, especially during the holidays, that live the same day over and over again, and aren’t sure where their next meal will come from or where they’ll lay their heads down for the night.

Over the next month or so, as you go about your daily routines, think about those who are suffering and don’t have the means for a meal or a warm place to sleep.

Think about ways you can help others, whether it be through your church or by other means.

Help change a person’s day.
