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?

  1. I am committed to helping the least of these and will be doing a package meal of some sort for the homeless.

A Small Tear

I could barely see.  My eyes felt itchy and irritated.  I thought I was tired from a full day of work. Sitting at a computer. Taking meetings with clients. Staff meetings. All the work of a typical Friday. But the day was not over. I still had an hour left in my two and a half hour drive down the two-lane, tree surrounded road to Tallahassee.  I was rubbing my eyes and blinking so much to stop the itch. Nothing was working. Nothing was soothing me.  I drove in discomfort as long as I could......then I reached my breaking point.  When I arrived at a stopping point in my travels, I removed my contact lenses. Before I replaced the contacts with glasses, I took a look at the lenses.  If only I would have recognized the signs sooner.... The left lens had a tear.  Side note: The thing I have yet to grasp is how a contact lens that is inside the eye gets a tear without even being touched. If you can explain how this happens, feel free to drop the knowledge i
