Before I begin, I must share with you something. I realize that if you don’t know me well, then my blog entry from the other day could have implied a negative perspective of my Nana. So for the sake of clarity, let me say how much I love my Nana. She is a pretty amazing woman. I admire many great things about her, but she is 91 and she did grow up during the Depression. So needless to say, you can imagine she has a few opinions reguarding politics and other things in life that have “changed” over the years. She is just 91 now and not hiding anything on the inside anymore. Even now, God is using her to teach me a great many things. Keeping me focused on the life and calling He has set before me.
It seems as though one day has passed and at the say time maybe 20. I have spent much time thinking about every “little thing” I do and don’t do. And how do these “little things” reflect the condition of my heart. Of course I would love to say that my heart is always in the right place. But this IS about honesty. Looking back, it is easy to say that my heart has come a long way over the years. But I desire more than that. There are times that I am so FULLY aware of just why the song Amazing Grace was written!!!
“Amazing Grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found. Was blind but now I see………..
And when this flesh and heart shall fail and mortal life shall cease;
I shall possess within the veil a life of joy and peace.” -John Newton,1779
It is my sincere hope that you and your families have a blessed and joy-filled holiday this year.
Enjoy EVERY LITTLE THING with your family!
Sit around your tree, sit back, and look around you. Then, imagine you are 91. If there is anything that you would change- THEN PURPOSE TO DO IT RIGHT THEN AND THERE!
