So last night Kellie came and told me that she wanted to go to church. Honestly I was dreading this whole weekend. I was planning on staying busy working on flooring our attic and getting things done around the house and trying not to think about not having our baby girl on this Easter weekend. But Kellie insisted we go to church last night so that we would not have to go on Sun with so many people and I can't thank her enough for it.
It is funny how when I am down she picks me up somehow. She didn't know that I was feeling so down because I didn't tell her, but by us going to church from her doing, she and God changed my perspective on this whole weekend.
We got to church and the message our pastor talked about was Borrowed Time. He explained that everything we have, including ourselves and our families is all Gods. It doesn't matter how many cars you have, or how big your house is, when we die it all goes back into the box. The only thing that matters in life is what you do with it to make a difference.
Even our children are Gods and he has a plan for everyone and everything. Just by letting us hold his angel for 4 short months, look at the astounding number of people she has helped through me and Kellie. There are countless numbers of people out there now that appreciate their children more and understand how important life is. We may have lost our 1 child, and it hurts bad, but she saved thousands of lives.
At the end of the service our pastor did something that I have never seen or heard of. They passed the offering bucket back around to everyone and had every person take an envelope out of it. In this envelope there was a five dollar bill. He said with this five dollar bill I want each and everyone of you to go out and make a difference. Now five dollars doesn't sound like a lot but they are giving out 11,000 five dollar bills. 55,000 dollars is going back into the community for God.
I would like to know what you guys think I should do with the money. I have a couple ideas but I would like to hear from you! I will post what I did with it and hope that I make a difference in someones life! Love you guys and remember we are all on borrowed time so make every day count!!
