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.
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
for us to do life with.
They are our MORE always,
From RAGS TO RICHES~
FROM LESS TO MORE~
