Prayer

My buddy Mike Larson just sent me this awesome quote/prayer from John Maxwell.

"Lord as i get older I would like to be known as available more than a hard worker, compassionate more than competent, content, not driven, generous instead of rich, gentle over being powerful, a listener more than a great communicator, loving vs quick or bright, reliable and not famous, sacrificial instead of successful, self controlled rather than being excited, thoughtful more than gifted, I want to be a foot washer, I want to finish well."

Isn't that great!

That is so awesome! I love that prayer...definitely a great reminder. Thanks for sharing it! I'm gonna print it out and put it in my nightstand to remember what we're really here on this earth for! :) Be blessed, DJ!

That resonates with me as well: more silence and less noise so we can hear the still, small voice when it speaks.

DJ, you beat me to posting it! I have so much that I want to blog that I never get a chance to blog, you are so much better about blogging in the "Now". It was great to hang the other day.
