Things that change my priorities in life


There are some things in life that change you forever... some things that you just cannot EVER forget.

This picture, is one of those things. One of those things that change me, change who I am and what I stand for. Seeing this pictures makes driving a new car, going on a vacation, and eating dinner out tonight not quite so cool. It changes my desires in life and makes me sick to the very core of my soul. They say a picture is worth a thousand words... if you were there right now, right now seeing this child in front of you what would you say? More importantly- what would you do?

Can I tell you something?

A child JUST like that is closer than you think... a child that needs you. What are you going to do about that?

"Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what is says. James 1:22

I just finished Red Letters on the treadmill this morning....crying. In addition to giving 30% of EVERY sale that I make with my cards business, I am also going to start using part of my allowance for 5for50.

I WISH I could go scoop that child up right now, bring him home, nurse him back to health, and KEEP him!!!
