Day 8: More in Less

What if having MORE is really having LESS~

because all you have is MORE than you could ever imagine?

I have been spending time with so many who have

suffered great losses

and keep telling me the same message~

Appreciate your relationships


life is short


you never know when

your loved one~

who you always thought would be with you the rest of your life

will be called home to be with GOD.

As I look into the eyes of my precious husband

I can't imagine a day when I won't be able to look into his eyes

or maybe the day that he won't be able to look into mine


into the eyes of our children


our children's children.

Not to be debbie downer

but LOSS is Real & part of Life is LOSS.

So what if having MORE is really having LESS~

because you are savoring what you do have


not wishing you had


even in the middle of LOSS~

In the middle of

I wish this or that wasn't so

or I wish I could or I wish he or she could

or look at what they have & what I don't have~

which always produces


anger, bitterness, frustration and anxiety,

Wanting MORE in the middle of LESS

when what you have is so much MORE


JESUS becomes our MORE.

HE is

MORE PEACE in the center of a storm.


MORE FORGIVENESS in that bitter moment.


MORE COMFORT when loss is so overwhelming.

HE is all the MORE we need when we crave so much MORE

in the middle of our LESS.

Life is so much MORE than what our eyes can see and our hearts can feel,

I am hugging all of those hearts who are suffering such great losses

as I pray that

JESUS will bring you

OVERWHELMING MORE in the middle of LESS.

Hug your loved ones and never take advantage of them ,

as everyone in our lives are precious gifts who


has handpicked

for us to do life with.

They are our MORE always,



"We do this by keeping our eyes on JESUS, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith"

(Hebrews 12:1)
