In light of the tragic events that took place in Newtown, CT; my post today is dedicated to those things that really matter. I am by no means a poet, but the Holy Spirit assisted me as I penned this poem from my heart. May we all keep these families in our prayers, as when the news media leaves and when the rest of the world carries on with life as usual, they will be left to grieve over a future with their loved ones that will never happen here on earth. As you read this poem, may it encourage you to take a step towards...you doing YOU WELL!
It’s not how many likes I can get on my FB status or the amount of followers on my blog, but it’s how many people have I told about Jesus the Christ and His amazing love
It’s not the fact that I didn’t get that purse I wanted or those brand new pair of shoes, but what about kids who walk every day on bare feet that are battered and bruised
It’s not about my frustration with the traffic jam or the fact that gas is too high, but it’s about that family down the street who are barely getting by
It’s not about my favorite restaurant not getting my order quite right, but it’s about the
homeless man and his family who had nothing to eat last night
It’s not about whether my hair holds a curl and it just won’t do right today, but it’s about the little girl who wish she had hair, but cancer has taken it away
It’s not about our disappointment when we think our kids at times don’t get it right, but it’s about countless families who wish they had one more chance to hold their loved ones tight
As we look at our lives and find the many things over which we can make a fuss, only when we see the big picture, do we realize our lives are much bigger than us
During this holiday season as our families near and far come to gather, let us all look within and examine ourselves and focus on only those things that matter….
