Good neighbors.

After the last two weeks of snow and cold winter weather good neighbors come to mind. After the first of the snow came down the driveway had been cleared by a neighbor. This is the same man that was one of the friends who helped mow the yard after heart surgery side lined your examiner in 2012.

Springfield is not a lot different from other small cities in the United States. It is a place where people care about others. That is the foundation of the Christian faith. The Caring Community does not stop with neighbors. The caring community in the Springfield area has now sent Ozarks Honor Flights to Washington, D.C. with every local World War II veteran that wished to make the trip.

Not all of the people who care about others claim to be Christians. Not all of them attend Christian Churches. Not all of them identify themselves as Christians on surveys. Some of these people who care believe that Christian's interest in others is self centered and that is why they do not want to associate with Christians.

This area also has a large population of homeless. For years city officials have discussed how to stop this group from coming here from other areas. They haven’t found a way. One of the things that has been discussed has been discouraging some of the ministries that serve the homeless. The availability of assistance from Springfieldians draws folks from other areas.

Many factors make up the reason to live in a certain area. The reasons a community is chosen for a retirement home or the place you live when you have a job that lets you live where ever you want are many and varied. One of the reasons Springfield is popular is the people. It is a caring community.

The residents notice neighbors and care about them. In this community neighbors help each other. The old adage applies. To have a good neighbor, you must be a good neighbor.
