Take the time to smell the roses....

I have always been the type of person to put everyone else ahead of me. Helping people is one thing I enjoy. I realized that sometimes I get into helping people so much that I don't look back on what a difference I have made. I have been reading a book called What I learned from God while gardening. It talked about how we help "weed" other people's garden but we don't take the time to look back on what a beautiful garden God created through us. Lately, I have been so busy helping other people that I have not looked at what God did through me.....so....I decided to take the time to smell the roses. I called a handful friends that I helped through the years and caught up on how things were going. As expected, these friends are doing very well. It felt so good to know that I helped someone who needed help. Not only did they get the help they needed but I was able to witness to them. They have given their life to the Lord and are doing very well. I am very happy to see this "garden" grow in His glory! Always take the time to look back on what you did for people..you probably made a world of difference in their life. God bless!
