So, I realize that I've been away from the computer for a few extra days than my initial focus of multiple posts in a week. My apologies. Today is a fantastic day, coming off the heels of a celebration and remembrance of a phenomenal leader who I believe would be crying and smiling ear to ear with Obama's inauguration earlier today. I won't expound on the varying emotions and things I'm feeling currently...I'll just let each of us cherish, reject, or embrace the past 48 hours for everything they are.
I will leave you with some neat thoughts that came from an e-mail that one of our Bammel elders sent me. It's simple and profound, and I pray that it just encourages you a little bit.
A FEW THINGS GOD WON'T ASK on that day.
1...God won't ask what kind of car you drove, He'll ask how many people you drove who didn't have transportation.
2...God won't ask the square footage of your house, He'll ask how many people you welcomed into your home.
3...God won't ask about the clothes you had in your closet, He'll ask how many you helped to clothe.
4...God won't ask what your highest salary was, He'll ask if you compromised your character to obtain it.
5...God won't ask what your job title was, He'll ask if you performed your job to the best of your ability.
6...God won't ask how many friends you had, He'll ask how many people to whom you were a friend.
7...God won't ask in what neighborhood you lived, He'll ask how you treated your neighbors.
8...God won't ask about the color of your skin, He'll ask about the content of your character.
