sometimes we [or people we love] are dealt really crappy hands. i don't pretend to know or understand everything about faith but i think that sometimes you can find blessings hidden in what seems like the biggest crap storm you've ever seen.
do these blessings make up for what's going on? probably not in your mind. not in my mind right now, not at all. but i do trust that God has a plan.
i can only speak for myself and this is what is resounding loud and clear in my heart... i need to live more for others than myself. and i haven't been doing that. not.at.all. i spend so much of my time thinking about myself and how things affect me, and so on and so forth. more time thinking about myself than the people i love and care about. and that's not the person i want to be.
so i'm challenging myself and you all too...
first:::: what's important to you? who is important to you?
second:::: what are you doing about it? it can be big or small, but make sure you're doing something. don't put if off because YOU are busy. make the time. if you love somebody, tell them, show them. earnestly make it a priority everyday.
