Have you ever been miss judged?

I f your the one who did all the work, you could be thinking" that was a lot of work and for what" Oh not that it wasn't nice and not that everyone didn't come and have a great time, but when it was all said and done would you say a lot of turkeys got stuffed today. Or would you say it was more about the relationships that were fostered and spirits that were nurtured? That was my plan, but I guess I'll never really know if it was well invested. Well maybe twenty years from now someone will say:" something about that day changed my life. Who knows and then it will all be worth it".

I'm not around my neices and newphews much , but one of them said something about my wanting waltz back into their lives after 5 years and be their friend. That hurt. Yes, I want to be their friends but more importantly, I want to live a life that they will be proud to tell their friends about. A life that speaks volume about Jesus and his love for the lost, about Jesus and His power over sin. I had a guy tell me he wanted me to be his lover and sleep with him, not so long ago. Honestly it was tempting, but I couldn't help but think about my neices and nephews and how that could potentially affect their lives. I told the man that it was out of the question, I have to much to loose and nothing to gain by those actions. The greatest gift of love and friendship I can give to those dear children is to be true (even at 50 ) to my Jesus.
So what are you thankful for this Thanksgiving? Name some things in others lives that you are thankful for.

I'm thankful that God (and Connie) introduced us. Thankful for what He has put on your heart to do in Malawi, and for what He will teach you, as well.
