Have you ever been everything to someone? Thirty years ago today a child that I had built my world around was privileged to go live with JESUS. He nor I knew it was his time to leave this world. All kinds of emotions went through me for years until one day (many many years later) I realized the blessings I had in his brother, sister and his mother were being wasted in my self-pity. Many years later I was at the hospital when a baby boy was born exactly on this day! A precious gift who a few years later would not go in on Christmas day to open "Santa's" presents until he had finished helping me cut wood! Yes, I have wasted and even lost "some of the most precious moments" in my life because I did not cherish the moments of experiencing all of GOD'S Blessings at HIS provided time. Joel 2:25-26, "I will restore to you the years...and you will praise the name of your GOD." Today, do I have tears of sorrow for what was lost and that which is lost will never be regained? No! JESUS takes away the wasted years, JESUS is in my veins lifting me up, Higher and Higher until I see that child who left this world 30 years ago. I REFUSE TO MOURN, I AM GOING TO DANCE BECAUSE THERE AIN'T NO ROOM FOR SELF PITY, WITH ALL THAT GOD HAS BLESSED ME! I HAVE HAD IT WITH MY SELF-PITY! AMEN! Psalm 139: 23-24 Isaiah 43:1 GOD IS GOD!
