My Heart....(part 1)

To my children, those I know and those I don't,

I want to ask you, "Where is your heart? What are you willing to sacrifice? Are you willing to sacrifice?"
These are questions that we must all ask ourselves, along this journey of life. Do we love Jesus? Are we willing to be a little uncomfortable sometimes? To move beyond our comfort zone for Him?
No matter how you slice it, here in America we all are rich. Most other countries, know true poverty. What can we do? What should we do? How far can we go before we tire of people calling us crazy? How far are we willing to go to find true JOY? Where is true JOY found?

Love,
Mom

While we wait...

While we wait for the perfect timing...



they hope they can wait another day.



While we wait for more money...



they wait with nothing.



While we wait for a bigger home with enough room...



they wait for room in our hearts.



While we wait for others approval...



they wait with any dignity they can find.



While we wait for the ideal child....



they wait knowing they are not.



While we wait trying to decide if we can manage another...



they wait trying to manage on their own.



While we wait to see how much we have to give to them...



They are waiting to give us even more.



While we wait for God to provide...



He waits for us to take the first step so He can.



We must NEVER use 'waiting to hear from Him' as an excuse for not doing what He has ALREADY commanded in the bible for us to do... proclaim the truth, care for orphans, serve others, be His hands of justice for the poor, and show compassion.



So, what are you waiting for??
