Growing Older

Lord, as I grow older, I think I would rather be known as …

-thoughtful, rather than gifted,
-loving, versus quick or bright,
-gentle, over being powerful,
-a listener, more than a great communicator,
-available, rather than a hard worker,
-sacrificial, instead of successful,
-reliable, not famous,
-content, more than driven,
-self-controlled, rather than exciting,
-generous, instead of rich,
-and compassionate, more than competent,

I want to be a foot-washer.

I LOVE IT BABE! We can be feet/ foot washers together! The last two days I have passed by ambulances, firetrucks, and police officers, and I thought wow, they are being heros everyday. Then my heart reminded me...I am blessed with two heros...You and Jesus! I love you and I am thrilled that you both still take my breath away!

When God created man, He made him in the likeness of God. Genesis 5:1
