pray for the Heil Family tonight

Today I had the opportunity to help watch one of friends daughter Ava. Ava's mom Katherine lost her sister Sunday night and was getting ready for her visitation. I did not realize that I had met her baby sister Victoria but apparently I had.

My heart is sad for this family. Not because I knew her, but because I know her sister. She is doing well. She told me today that God knows everything. He knows the hairs on our heads and our number of days. Not everyone gets to live to be 100. I accept this. Wow!! Her faith impresses me.

But then I started thinking, I do not want one friend or family member leaving this earth doubting my love. So one of my goals this next year is to love more, through actions, not by words.

I sat there and played with Ava, and just wondered whats going on her head. Will she hear stories of her aunt one day? I am sure she will.

I challenge all of you to love more. The economy sucks. Many of us can not afford a lot, especially expensive gifts. But we can love more. Its not that hard. I hope to find a lot of ways to show love this year.

Will I have resolutions this year? Of course but I have one main one and then it branches off. I want to be more like Jesus. What about you???

This is a great resolution. It has gotten me thinking about my own life and how much I have to be thankful for.
