opportunities surround me. i have a great job, people who love me and an incredible God who loves me more, yet, at times, i still feel empty and feel as though i don't belong anywhere. i've been sitting here trying to figure out what it is i'm missing, but i'm starting to think that maybe - just maybe - there's a desire and longing inside of each of us that can't be met/quenched until we meet our maker face to face. it's as if we were made for another world...

there are days where i need an extra boost, if you will. you know - the kind of day where i need the assurance that my life counts; that the time and energy i spend on loving people [whatever the means] isn't in vain. today is one of those days.

i got a letter from a friend i went to school with in edmonton this morning, which read:

okay, this is random, but every time i think about our trip overseas, my mind drifts back to hong kong 2007. I remember when you washed all of our towels for us and left them folded in our rooms with a little note written on top. i don't know if you remember that or not because you've done things like that a lot before! but honestly it was so meaningful to me that it has never left my mind and i continue to be brought back to it. you were always so thoughtful about things like that and can i just say that during those times when you've done something or even just said something thoughtful to someone, they will never forget it! your words and actions are powerful!

it's as if 'someone' knew exactly what i needed to be reminded of today! the love i show others isn't in vain. and neither is YOURS.
