Some days a small voice in the back of my mind likes to take notice of how many things in my life could be better....if......
But as God has been stirring my heart, awakening my soul to the desperate needs of others, I've talked back to quiet that complaining, nagging voice....
I hate the noise our cheap shower head makes in the morning, annoying me awake
but many in our world walk for hours to collect water for their family,
and many times it is contaminated with bacteria
I'd love a new bedspread for Christmas, something beautiful, colorful
but many are sleeping every night on dirt floors,
without blankets or pillows
My family is not fond of left overs, those nights we eat what's left in the frig
but in destitute countries, some are willing to eat mud pies,
just to quiet their stomachs
Our thread bare couches should really be replaced
$2000 could provide 28 farm animals to a hungry family thru World Vision
I'd love to spoil my girls for Christmas, buying them everything on their list
but $300 can feed a Haitian family for an entire year
In this season of Thanksgiving,
may we spread our blessings across the globe to bless others.
