What if..

What if.. when someone was suffering we lifted them up
What if.. when someone was sad we comforted them
What if.. when someone was happy we rejoiced with them
What if.. when someone offered us a compliment we took it
What if.. when someone succeeded we celebrate with them
What if.. when someone failed we encouraged them to try again
What if.. when someone was in a valley we helped them to the mountain top
What if.. when someone didn't feel loved we loved them
What if.. when someone didn't feel worthy of anything we let them know they are
What if.. we gave from the heart until it hurt
What if.. we saw someone being bullied and we stood up for them
What if.. we really stood for what we believed in
What if.. we trusted
What if.. we surrendered
What if.. we loved
What if.. we cried
What if.. we rejoiced
What if.. we failed
What if.. we hurt
What if.. we feared
What if.. we laughed
What if.. we felt worthy
What if.. we supported
What if.. we took chances

What if.. we had faith
What if.. we believed we could move mountains
What if.. we all worked together for the greater good
What if.. we had more money
What if.. we had less money

I have had so many "what if's" the last few weeks. There are so many things that I want to do, but I know that I can't do all of them and be good at any of them.

I want to:
be a better wife
a better mom
feed people
love people
rock babies that have no one to rock them
to help people see that they don't have to be a product of their environment
to help with the drug problem in our county
sit with people at chemo that have no one to sit with them
volunteer with Hospice so no one has to die alone
to pray for everyone to see the love of Jesus
the list goes on and on and on and on.. and on..

What if.. instead of putting our need (wants) first we put someone else first? What if we all did one thing to help someone and did it really good.

What if.. we all knew our calling.
What if.. I knew mine

We could change the world

Blessed is me..
