It was a little more than two minutes,
and simply introduces me as the writer of this blog.
Perhaps this is not a big feat for many,
but for me it is significant.
My wife pointed out that I looked tired & sick,
which I was.
A sinus infection, allergies, lack of sleep,
feeling weak & ill, plus...
caring for my one-year old daughter during the day
while attempting to start my own business.
(Thank goodness she still takes naps-
Otherwise I would accomplish nothing!)
But here is the point...
Especially in order for to see ourselves grow?
We feel bad enough
So why make something public
that could potentially reduce or minimize
The short answer - Growth.
nor will I be any better looking!
My humor, energy, and compassion
didn’t come through in the video.
So why do it?
But perhaps it is the start of something more.
I cannott say right now. But...
clearly directing the steps in our lives
what do we do?
Where do we intentionally risk ourselves?
The excitement of extreme sports?
What about for a business venture?
How about to save a friend?
Or risking yourself to make a friend?
or the children they left behind
could be better off
if you would take the risk.
Think you have nothing to offer?
You could simply learn to play cards.
things could be different,
if only we knew someone would be there
in spite of all our mistakes
to sit beside us, and care.
If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even "sinners"' love those who love them. And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even "sinners" do that. And if you lend to those from who you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even "sinners" lend to "sinners," expecting to be repaid in full. But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because He is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.
Share with Gods' people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
However it has nowhere to go but up!
Yet if I risk nothing...
it is more than just me that loses.
