March Madness - Day 15

Create opportunities instead of waiting for opportunities!

Do you know what is coming up in just a few weeks?

Hopefully you guessed it....EASTER!

Easter is celebrated by different people for different reasons.

For some, Easter is about the Easter bunny, candy filled eggs and Spring colored outfits.

For some, Easter is just the natural term for the spiritual celebration of Christ's resurrection.
(Don't forget that the resurrection is only possible because of the birth, death, and burial.)

For some, Easter is about both. All things to be happy and appreciative about.

As I think about Easter, there is one thing that flashes in my head daily. That one thing is Matthew 25:40. It reads, "....whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."

That's compassion.
That's service.
That's love.

Outreach activities please God in a tangible way. In a way that honors Him and His sacrifice.

There will be many churches, and maybe even a few organizations, that show up for some form of community service between March 30-April 1. But individuals can also serve.

In service to the least of these...
Will you create an opportunity? 
OR 
Will you sit back and wait for an opportunity to come?

My marriage is important because....
It's the thing that has kept me grounded for more than 10 years.

I had no idea what to expect regarding the Tallahassee heat and humidity. I quickly found out all about it since my move to Florida occurred during mid-summer. I landed in Florida on Sunday, July 16, 2006. Since I didn't start classes until August, I had a month or so to get acclimated to the area and to run errands. I needed to find a daycare, drive by schools, and establish residency. All of this was to be done with three kids in toe, all under the age of five.

I was up to the challenge. One afternoon in August, we were headed out for errands. Once I got to the car, I realized that I didn't have any water. I ran back upstairs to our apartment. When I opened the freezer to reach for a bottle of ice cold water, I was stopped in my tracks by a ring box and a note.

Yes! This man left his family behind for me.
Yes! This man spent 6 weeks alone in Tallahassee to set a foundati…
