Completely Humbled

Humbled beyond belief.

When I take stock of the many blessings all around, I am completely and utterly humbled.

At the pool last night, our eight-year old son and I were talking about what if we lost everything – all our money and our house.

I told my son, “We would still have God and Jesus”.

I continued, “Even when a person has nothing, they still have God and Jesus”.

We fairly quickly moved on to talking about the Pirate Legos he brought with him, but I love these small opportunities to reinforce what I believe – in his impressionable mind and heart.

A parent, or adult if you’re not going to be a parent, has two choices with their child.

  1. To teach important things, by design – meaning on purpose
  2. To hope that important things will reach the child by default – meaning not on purpose

It is never my intent to make anyone feel bad or guilty, (including myself) I simply feel a duty to think things through. If this stimulates helpful thinking in others, perfect.

Are you thinking now? I hope so. Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂

Internet's only five-a-day blogger, leaving a trail for our son. This is about putting the spirit of Love at the center of your life. It may be God, Allah, Mohammed, Buddha, Yahweh, etc. For me, it's Jesus.
