Became slightly discouraged yesterday when it took me 3 hours to finalize the editing for 8 pages of my 413 page manuscript! I’m getting better and moving faster, but not fast enough. My goal is to finish the editing by the second week of June. God… help? (smile)
Who’s Having More Fun?
Please take a look at the todays photo. Now, tell me what immediately comes to your mind. Who’s having the most fun? At a fast glance, it may seem like the girl in the front (with the GREAT BIG SMILE) is have far more fun than the girl thats laying her life down for the benefit of a friend! Yet, I have found that sometimes, OFTENTIMES…
It’s more fun to push than ride!
I went on the funnest UVA hospital visitation trip of my life, yesterday afternoon! Kristin Via, Dawn Valentine, Cindi Fortin, and myself went to visit 3 suffering church friends… hoping to make a big difference, and walked away with a bigger difference made in our lives! We were so encouraged with the OPTIMISM of those patients! We laughed and inspired each other 30 minutes to the hospital and back, we had so much fun creating smiles for our friends!
Really, the greatest way to shake stress is to PUSH EVERYTHING ASIDE, and GO BEAUTIFY SOMEONE’S DAY! Every single time I’ve ever done this, I’ve always walked away with a BRIGHTER OUTLOOK!
The amazing warmth one receives when he our she blesses another… sacrifice: it’s only comprehended with experience!
Luke 6:38 “Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.”
Proverbs 11:24-25 “Give freely and become more wealthy; be stingy and lose everything. The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.”
And that’s my blog for today… hope it inspires a few hundred selfless weekend activities! I’m so thankful for this beautiful blog tribe! You are very good people! Love you all… and still praying for you everyday!
Don’t forget church at Destiny Family Center tomorrow 10am, if you’re nearby! It’s gonna be AMAZING!
Dream Big, Live Bold, and Make the Difference!
