it is about what i have. i sit here thinking of what i cannot give this year because we don’t have the money or the time, mostly money. and i am cut to the quick thinking that over 2000 years ago a woman rode a donkey into Bethlehem with her husband at her side and they carried all they owned with them, and she carried the most precious Gift i could ever possess. and my friend in Uganda with three girls with almost nothing as well – loving them, caring for them, giving them a home and hope in Christ – i am ashamed.
so what do i have? on this cold blustery day here i have a home, heat, food, clothing, clean water, a husband that loves me, my three children, but mostly i have the knowledge that i am nothing without Christ and He is all i should need or want. i have more than i need. i am blessed beyond my mind and heart so i need to suck it up and give what i can, not what i want to give. blessings all.
