How is it that on paper we look so poor by US standards, yet we truly have so much, especially compared to the rest of the world?
We don't make enough to get by month to month and yet my house is overflowing with stuff and we have so many friends and family, especially grandparents that love on the kids.
Some of the lack comes from choices we've made and some of it just is, but I don't regret any of it, especially when I see the bigger picture. The picture of raising my children to love life and not stuff, of putting people first, even if it means that you don't get that next cool "toy" you wanted. Of learning to see the world and not just what's right around you.
Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.
Blessed are you who hunger now, for you will be satisfied.
~ Luke 6:20-21
I want to see the world through Kingdom eyes and hunger for the things that God hungers after. And that's certainly not much that money can buy!
