tis' the season for EXCESS
it been a bit of a wild ride this year. i've seen and feeling big things, beautiful things and life changing things. ive traveled pretty far and and hauled my booty in school. i was all sorts of poverty, the poor in spirit, the field of the fatherless, the born into poverty, the cyclical poverty, inner city poverty and homelessness. i know there is a bible with that i choose to live my life by that has 20,000 verses in in about the poor, the orphan, the widow and the sojourner and there is something i have to do to aid them in their distress. ive been a follower of jesus for about 6 or 7 years now last year, believe it or not was nearly the first year i finally understood it, A THRILL OF HOPE A WEARY WORLD REJOICES, it brought utmost joy to people who needed a savior, a king simply born just to die, it was an unusual birth and a humble beginning. americans spend on average 700 billion dollars on christmas shopping. we are exchanging legal tender for things that will rust and ruin. where is the actual birthday boy's gift?! how to you get the savior of the world a birthday gift? you buy something that defends the cause that breaks his heart. i don't know if ill make this a tradition or something but all gifts this year will be a cause i strongly believe in and will help defend and support the 153 million orphans, a financial donation to the children's home i worked at a few months ago. this year give him a gift, a fragrant offering. this christmas is all about small blessings and giving to charities that need the support no excess of here.
