The Bucket

 
“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”  Galatians 6:2
A friend asked if she could donate her purses.  “No,” I told her, “They carry everything on their heads.  If what they need doesn’t fit on their head, it doesn’t come, or a friend helps.”  This man carried mud in a bucket on his head.  What do you carry on your head, in your mind, close to your heart?  Are you carrying things that doesn’t fit in the bucket?  Give those things to your friend, Jesus, to help you carry.
Visit the Hope for Haiti facebook page to find out what they build with the mud.

How Many Days?

Who do you belong to?

Baptism is special.
It’s the beginning of the journey.  For this man, it might be near the end of his physical journey.  The life expectancy for Haitian men is currently 61.  Whether this man has many days left, or only a few, he wants to spend them making a different for his new Lord.  This man declares God’s adoption.  Who claims you as son?  As daughter?  Who knows the number of your days.  Are you willing to spend them making a difference for your Lord?

“Lord our God, all this abundance that we have provided for building you a temple for your Holy Name comes from your hand, and all of it belongs to you. I know, my God, that you test the heart and are pleased with integrity. All these  hings I have given willingly and with honest intent. And now I have seen with joy how willingly your people who are here have given to you.” 1 Chronicles 29:16-17

David handed the blueprints to Solomon, and prayed for the completion of the temple. God provided the resources for a safe place for the Israelites to come. God will do the same for the Haitians at Bois Neuf. Although the building is not complete, we have faith he will supply the three tresses needed. He will provide a safe place that will shield his people
from rain and sun. Will you echo David’s words and joyfully praise God for this outdoor auditorium?

Starting over.  Moving, being single again, graduating, changing churches…many situations cause a person to start over.  This book speaks to more than just changing locations.  It helps the reader to settle into a community without the awkward pauses and polite laughter that lingers for years.  It’s the manual to building lasting relationships.

Carol brings a sense of understanding without being preachy that allows the reader to admit, “She gets it.” Community becomes harder to find, and deep relationships are difficult to find outside the computer monitor.  Developing connections in the midst of moving can be overwhelming, but not impossible.

Changing Zip Codes changes perspective.  Taking a walk out the front door will go a long way, and Carol shows you the next step after leaving your front door.  Are you in a time of transition?  Then don’t forget your manual.
