A fitting follow up to my last post and a simple way to take action… Be informed, pray, give.
“If you were to wake up tomorrow, with only the things you thanked God for today, what would you have?”
What an awesome question. Thankfulness in general will transform your perspective indeed. But, thankfulness to God, will completely change your life, like it did for Helen… what an amazing story.
Thanks for a great video Open Doors Australia.

Just Another Human Being?
This guy is amazing. A true humanitarian who has seen a need and changed his life to do something very practical about it.
I love his simple philosophy – “I’m just another human being, we are all the same… the ultimate purpose of life is to give.”
If you aren’t a little challenged by this guy, I think you need to have a good think about your outlook on life.
