I went on a scavenger hunt today to find someone God put on my heart weeks ago.... I went on four different sixth floors, into two different parking garages, and asked nine different people for help..... I knew from all of that there was a reason the devil didn't want me to find this "special" someone!
As I was getting ready to walk into the hospital room I could barely hold back the tears... This is odd for me! I've never met this person, but knew I needed to! Needless to say three hours later I felt like we had been friends my entire life. I actually even have tears rolling down my face as I write this.... All of the emotions this person is feeling I have felt....
August 30th..... usually I'm running around like a chicken this time of year... Final weekend before the farm opens, week before Wednesday night church programs begin, parades advertising the farm, lining up all of our help for the fall, trying to find sitters,.... you get my point INSANE! Then there is August 30th, 2015 when the things that used to matter don't.... The reality that the only thing that matters is loving God and loving others.
The planner that used to have something on EVERY SINGLE DAY now looks empty... Those events, dinners, functions, etc. are now so unimportant to me..... I know this week is going to be busy with Labor Day weekend coming up, but what would happen if you cleared off an evening just to be home with your family?
Abraham Lincoln once said, "In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years."
I understand the term "busy," but is it how you want to live your life?
