This is What I Believe

I chose to delete my post in response to an anonymous comment. After contemplating on the George Bernard Shaw quote I realized that it did not express my belief in regard to the best way to use this life that God has given me. I agree that we should strive to live life to the fullest...however, it's we fill our life that is most important... What Christianity has taught me, what meditating on the life of Christ has taught me, what the actual results of loving others has taught me is .. serving others reaps tremendous rewards...rewards of contentment, fulfillment, peace and returned love. And when Christ enters a heart it's effortless.

"The harder I work, the more I love"...I do not understand this statement..hard work can and does sometimes results in things this world views as "success"..ie. financial security, ego fulfillment, etc...and this is not a bad thing...but unless the "work" is directed toward serving others it does not result in love...
loving begets love.
This is what I believe.

However, I certainly appreciated the last part of the comment:
"No matter the outcome, the previous days leading to life's decision, were mighty ones. Every one. No matter how mundane to the rest of the world, they were infinitely special to you - and all who know and love him - and that is what matters most."

    I've kept you both in my heart and mind for weeks. Though I've been absent in word I've not been in spirit. Your story and lives have blessed me more than you will ever know. Grace continues to abound through your lives. Prayer is lifted for you both.
