It Matters to That One

Talk is cheap.  

So many folks think posting a meme or retweeting a catchy phrase is the same as acting on what they believe

It’s not.

If the only action you take to advance the values you claim to hold dear is a few keystrokes behind the safety of a screen I question your commitment.

Don’t tell me you love your neighbor when you don’t know his name.

Get up off the couch and make a difference.

Can I change the world?  Probably not.

But I can change my corner of it.

Can I help everyone?  No.

But I can help someone.

This is an old story, but it’s true:

I am a shepherd, wife and mother of four amazing children, three that walk the earth with me and one who lives with Jesus. This is a record of my grief journey and a look into the life I didn't choose.

    1. Thanks, Vicky-I’ve got the book and started reading it. For some reason I’ve lost my ability to just sit and read a whole book at once. But I’m working on it. I would love to hear your opinion of it and will check out the sermon series!

      1. Melanie, grief has affected my concentration and attention span big time. Some books take me months to read. I often listen to the same podcasts several times too, to let them sink in. Hugs to you. ❤️
