You ARE God's gift to the world...

Last night, during my religion class, the 5th graders and I were discussing the fact that you are, in fact, God's gift to the world.

God, in His infinite wisdom, arranged history since the beginning of time so that you would be right here, right now. He had your great-greats all the way back fall in love so that your parents would be born so that they, in turn, could have you.

We talked about how, in light of this, we must try and figure out what He intends for us to do here. We must look at our talents and our world and figure out how best to serve Him, here and now.

So, this morning, I was talking about this with my husband and my grandson. My grandson, the Moose, the 4th grader, decided that some people are just here to be the ground troops.

...and may God bless them all.

reminds me of the story of the fellow who died and went to heaven -- and felt like he hadn't done anything spectacular. Then he discovered that a youngster he'd taught went on to become a great evangelist, influenced by his love of the Lord. I try to think about that when I'm feeling worthless. I remember how the shepherd went after the one sheep.
Maybe I'll help find that one.
