What do they call a City Girl who has been transplanted to a very small rural community where the turkeys out-number the residents 100 to one? One happy woman! But when you live in the city, you learn certain things (that’ll be another story) and there are things we do in the country.
When we lived in the city, we had a small red gas can to fill the lawn mower. One can full would last weeks. On God’s Woody Acres, we have a 50 gallon gas can. Comes with a pump and everything! It is 50 times bigger, and gets filled up several times a summer. (Boys and their [motor] toys, i.e., four-wheelers, log splitters, John Deere treasures, etc.) We always get ‘premium’ gas to keep our equipment running smoothly. It usually costs more, but it’s always worth it in the end.
It’s the same way with our relationship to The Father. God wants our first and best, because that’s what he’s going to give us – His very best! God wants quality time with me. He wants me to love others. He wants me to share all that He has given to me… because in all reality, ALL I have is from Him. Without Him, I am nothing, and have nothing.
When I think about all the Grace and Mercy God has given me, it’s not generosity when I give, but sharing.
Luke 18:22 (and so many other great scriptures! Look them up.)
