Together we are better

Sunday, February 04, 2007

Our Daily Bread this morning was about Nehimiah and the Jews rebuilding the wall in Jeruselum. How everybody worked together bringing whatever skills and talants they had. As a team, they were able to get it done in record time too. But individually they couldn't have done any of it.

which reminded me of the theme song for the small local organization that we got my son's service dog from. Together we are better!! and it is soooooo true.

We too are a team here at Sparks People. together we CAN do this. each of us helping out others. There are times when I need support and motivation, and times when I can give it. Together we are better!!

    Thanks so much for this timely reminder that we are a team. I definitely feel supported by all the SP members sharing their experiences on the site. Well said. emoticon

giving up what you have.

I love it when God give me a "double whamie".

Our Daily Bread today was about the little boy giving up his lunch so Jesus could feed thousands of people. Can you imagine how that little boy felt? "I'm just boy, with one small lunch, what good can I do........besides, I'm HUNGRY and that is MY lunch". but he gave that one small thing and look what happened. then the healthy reflection is talking about the same thing.

The last several years, I've done alot of "taking" and there are times when I feel like all I do is TAKE TAKE TAKE. But I have to realize there is a time for graciously accepting much needed help and a time for giving. And who knows how my simple crochet projects help out the people I give them to. or the time that I can give to my favorite charities (which isn't nearly what I would like it to be). I need to trust God with my "small lunch". Who knows what he will do with it.

  Love this Blog. I too have a small lunch to give but I have really never thought of it in quite this way.

Thanks for the food for thought. No pun intended.
