Make Your Life Count

Had a friend tell me once…”You only get one trip around the block in life…make it count.” 

You’re inspiring today as we are talking about the Happiest Places to Work in America, and what makes your office the happiest place to work.  Seems the key is to know your making a difference that brings you joy. 

A woman who cleans home says she prays for the family as she’s cleaning their toilet, and knows that they will smile when they get home.

A massage therapist who knows that people sleep better because of what she does for a living.

There’s a story today about an American woman who chose a job that makes a difference, but it put her life at risk. 

Jessica Buchanan was working with the Danish government to deactivate land mines in Somalia.  She’s 32 years old.  She volunteered for this position, but last October she was kidnapped by some bad guys.  Her family has been really worried about her health. 

Last night, they had a breakthrough.  Like something out of a Hollywood movie…A helicopter landed in the camp where she was being held hostage along with a Danish Man…it was full of US Navy Seals.  They rescued Jessica and her coworker…

She’s safe.  Just makes you proud to be an American today…Yeah…Go Navy Seals!  Now there’s a job that’s pretty fulfilling too.

Would love to know how you make your “trip around the block” in life count…

The fact that Jesus goes with me, yes even to my 'office'. And that fact that He guides me through my day. Thanks be to God
