life as it is seen from my heart and soul

it isn’t about what i don’t have

1 Comment

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.

One thought on “it isn’t about what i don’t have

  1. You have a huge heart and we have more than we need. We have power sometimes and clean water, unlike most of my neighbours who don’t even have beds. I love you.
