Less is More

I'm going to start by saying, I had this a little better paragraphed, which helped make sense to me, but for some reason, it keeps making it one big paragraph. I hope you will stick with me and get the true message of my passion! Thanks! I often wonder why we have such an attachment to "things" I feel like we are a society who has to have the best of this, or look better than them. We work so hard at this, that we often sink ourselves into enormous debt, and even alienate people who don't fit into our "standard" of life. I'm not saying it is wrong to have nice things, or to want to look nice. But, I believe there comes a point where we start to worship things on earth more than what comes next. But, truth is, we take NONE of this with us when we leave. We are no longer judged by what kind of car we drove, what brands we wore, how big our house was. What DID we do in our life? Who did we help? Did we take the time to ask others how their day was? Did we smile at a stranger, help someone who was struggling with a bag? Hold a door for someone, give when we don't have much ourselves? THESE are a reflection of how we lived our life. Who we touched. Who we shared our faith with. Did we share our faith? Or did we quietly worship? I myself, want to change the world. Now, I know, realistically I can't change the WHOLE WORLD. But, I'm going to do my part to try. I want to help those in need. I want to feed those who are hungry. I want to show those who don't believe, the way to Christ. Because, the only way to the Lord, IS through Christ. Salvation. Isn't that what we all want? To be welcomed into the kingdom of heaven with a "job well done" I don't know the Bible front to back. I can't easily come up with a verse for you. But, I can tell you about the love of my Savior. I can tell you the importance of him in my life and how greatly we have been blessed, and challenged because we have chosen to follow Him. I can show you his love through the way I chose to live my life. This reminds me of a song my Mom used to sing me before bed. I have gone on and started singing it to Mattea at night. It has become her favorite song. She says, "Sing me the song Gommy used to sing you." Warms my heart, and melts my Moms!!!! I'd like to share it with you.

When the day is dark and dreary, and your way is hard to find,

don't let your heart be weary, just keep this thought in mind

it is better to light just one little candle than to stumble in the dark

better far that you light just one little candle, all you need is a tiny spark

if we all say a prayer that the world would be free, the wonderful dawn of a new day we'd see and if everyone lit just one little candle, what a bright world this would be

If I light my candle, and share my light with you. You in turn, light your candle, and share it with others. How amazing would that be??? That we could easily share our light with another, and they go on and share their light? In fact, aren't we changing the world? We might not know it, but, it could be happening right now. SHARE YOUR LIGHT.

I want to become less aware of what earthly things I can acquire, and MORE aware of acquiring my eternal resting spot. I am on my way. I hope in some way, I can inspire you to do your part in making this world a little better, one candle at a time.

Love and light to all of you!!!!
