Gifts for Free

GO

Winter has passed, New Life is emerging

Life: A 25 year old female took her own life Wednesday by jumping from a balcony almost 30 floors high. Her body lay just 10 steps away from our church. With one decision to assign a permanent solution to a temporary problem, the gift is gone.

Prayer: The ability to stay in constant communion with the God of the Universe. His direct line is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. How often am I utilizing that gift?

Praise: Lifting my voice in uninhibited adoration of Creation to the Giver of Life. The ultimate gift giver loves the sound of our praise.

Laughter: Opening my mouth and letting the sound of laughter flow freely and without repose. Using my words and actions to invoke happiness in the form of smiles, laughter and undiluted joy.

Retreat: When I am able to find time away from the noise of the world.

Love: Without conditions. Without getting tired. Strongly, Deeply, Purely, Boundlessly.

STOP

    • Thank you Jen!
      It is incredibly sad about the girl who ended her life.
      In fact, it has consumed me.
      I appreciate your reading and taking the time to comment!

    • Mary, Thank you so much for your comment. It is encouraging and very welcomed. Sleep evades me once again as I think of the girl who ended her life when it had only just begun. I wish I could get that image out of my head.
      I’m going to head on over to your blog and read for a while.
      Come back and visit me soon ;)
