It's not that my children are messy. It's that I am a hoarder of wealth. It's that I treasure things that were never meant to be treasured.
I am rich. And I am grateful for my riches, but I think I am finding out that the blessing isn't in the wealth, but in the opportunity to share wealth with people who truly need it. The opportunity to be generous. The opportunity to be like God in some small way.
Today is the last day to be entered into a giveaway for a copy of my book by donating (any amount) to the Healing Hands International "Well Wishes" project that will build a community well in a third world country. We are almost 4/5 of the way there, thanks in part to you, my generous readers! I can't thank you enough for what has been donated so far. It is going to feel so amazing to get this project finished!! And I can't wait to start on the next project, whatever that might be. I have a few ideas lined up that I'm excited about. :O) I have been thinking about things, and I want to change my life, make it more of a blessing to others in meaningful ways. I don't want to waste the precious time I have here, and my heart is burning to make a difference. It has been for a while now. I keep thinking about when Jesus spoke to the rich young man in the book of Mathew who followed all the commandments, but wanted to be "perfect". Jesus told him to sell his possessions and give to the poor, then follow him. But the man went away sad, because he had great wealth. He went away sad. I just don't want to be that person. I want something better.
Anyway, blah blah blah, :O) If you want to read more, donate, and enter the giveaway,
And as always, I hope you're having a splendid day, and I love you to death. :O)
