Confessing my love...

I want to take this opportunity to confess my love to a few people and a few things. First I suppose I should mention my husband, since we are eternally bound by the vows of marriage. I love him, he's my best friend and I don't know what I would do without him.
Second, I love Rachel Ann! She seriously has become one of my best friends and we hardly see each other. But I think she's amazing, we share a lot of common thoughts and respect each other when we disagree.
Third, God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. I don't say this enough, these three (in one) completely consume me, form my life, and shape my beliefs. Because of my beliefs there a few other things that I love:
-The Environment, God's creation. I continually feel an overwhelming urge to do good things for the earth and make sure others do as well. My favorite term for this has recently become Creation Care and I plan on forming a website, company, newsletter or something around this idea.
-Others, God's children. If you know me at all, you know I'm a lover. I truly love everyone, I might get frustrated with people and irritated because they are not contributing to society the best way that they can, but I always care about them and continue to pray for them.
-This love for others also includes the "other." The minority, the oppressed, the poverty stricken, the immigrant looking for a home, and the forgotten on the boundaries of society.

Today I wish I had more money. Not to buy a new computer, which I kind of need, and not to buy groceries, which I definitely need, but to give away to the people who have even less than I do. To give to the church, who needs it desperately just to exist. To give to important political campaigns, for the politicians who are fighting for me and those that I love.

However I don't have this money because I am attending school to hopefully make an even bigger difference in the future, than that my money could make today. So I encourage you, my readers to give what you have, money, time, effort, joy, just give it and love that fact that you are doing so.
