feeling overwhelmed
by our ability
to be underwhelmed.

it is all so much.

poverty, HIV/AIDS, orphans.

overwhelming.

and what are we, as a nation doing?

sitting in our air conditioned homes, sipping our designer coffee, and talking about what a tragedy it all is.

and i am the worst of these.

yeah i know
pretty intense -
we are so on the same page these days
what to do, what to do
as i sit on my deck and watch my healthy kids play and enjoy the sun
and then in the next breath cry about how there is "nothing to eat" when the cupboards are full - just not with what they want that minute, it is overwhelming at times
everything seems like excess

It isn't that God doesn't want us to have nice things, He just doesn't want us to hold them too tightly.
