(back tracking day 2)

Day 2
 What was your most significant expenditure in 2012?
It doesn't have to be necessarily the biggest expenditure, just the one with the most impact.
What difference has it made to your life?
That is quite a question.
A misleading question actually
if you think of it in dollar amounts.
I can tell you this right now
the biggest expenses are
what is called
blood, sweat and tears.
The biggest impact first is seen in Christ
who died to save us.
The second is the blood of the Martyrs
who I am reading of often and
the horrific ways they died
continue to startle and convict.
Being a Christian is
if anything
not for sissies.
These stories and Saints are vitally important to us.
Do we realize that we we take for granted
as Christians?
are we ready to give like they and not deny?
For me
it the biggest expenditure is time and energy directed
towards people and learning to love.
My Grandma has said many times
God promises strength for the day
and we must trust that God will get us through
today and that we must pour ourselves out
and not worry
but at the same time understanding our
strength and when to rest and when to run.
