New Year's Revolution Update
I can't believe it's already April 9! Where has time gone - it's flown by!! Anyway, here is an update of my New Year's Revolution! - 1) I'm on track to read the Bible through this year. Right now I'm in the book of II Kings. 2) I recently went on a "mini" mission trip. It was so cool. It was to an organiztion called: "Love Packages," in Butler, Illinois. They take used literature and ship it overseas. Last year they shipped tons of Bibles and other Christian literature to countries who otherwise couldn't afford it. I helped to separate and pack the materials into boxes. It was fun and rewarding and exciting to hear the stories of testimonies from people in other countries who had received some of the previously shipped literature. 3) I've been sharing myself more freely with others. I'm on a mission to be more vulnerable and truthful with other people. It gives me and them permission to let our guards down. It helps us all! 4) Along with being more vulnerable, I've been attempting to be more generous. I have been trying to give more things and money away, which just comes back in multitude of blessings. 5) I'm trying to pray for each country, one nation at a time. Lately I've been focusing on Japan. They really need our prayers. My heart goes out to the people of that country. We have some friends who have been e-mailing us. Some of the stress they are undergoing is so heartbreaking. But, they are hanging in there. They are very kind people. I'm learning to open my heart and life to others. Well, as much as I would like to keep writing on here (I've got some more things to say but that will have to wait for another post.) I'm struggling with getting everything done (like my taxes! ugh!) so I better get off here and get busy!! Goodbye for now!!!
