"... your ministry is how much of a tip
you leave at a resturant; when you leave a hotel room
messed up or not; whether you flush your toilet or not.
Your ministry is the way you love people.
Just some Random thoughts about
becoming a woman of more substance
I am choosing this year to not become caught up
in the season's frenzy. Instead I am letting God pull
and refine me into a woman who sees beyond the surface.
I am slowing down and trying to only do the neccessary.
The necessary to move me closer to Christ.
I have been moved to reach out to my neighbors
around me (and not just the street kind although
they are a good place for me to begin).
And I have decided to treat family and friends
to gifts made by artist friends and myself
and not resort to superficial or convenience.
It will not be an easy thing for me to do
because I like easy, but I am tired of simplifing
on the most important things so that I can "fluff "
and "foo foo" the season.
The quotes are from a Rich Mullen's biographical book,
An Arrow Pointing to Heaven
(by James B. Smith, Amazon sells it used
and it would make a lovely Gift)
It inspires me to become a more authentic
person of faith,
as I hope these words will do for you.
Love and Peace to you,
