I am overpaid

150 150 Carol Davis

What is mine to do to make a better world?  That is a question I have asked every day for the past 10 years, or so.

For the first  27 years of my life I was a taker and I used and abused everyone who crossed my path and I ended up sleeping on park benches as a violent sub human.
Forty-five years ago,  I had a major spiritual experience that changed my life forever. I made a commitment that every day I had left on the earth,  I would do what I could to give back a little of what I took.
About 10 years ago I added to the giving back and began asking what is mine to do.   I have lived many years past what I thought possible and I know I am still here to give all of me – whatever that is – to make a better world.
About one year ago,  I was invited by my spiritual community to direct the youth services and I am now a Sunday school teacher.  I start crying as I type this because it is a joy beyond anything  I have ever known.  I have found my peace.
The future is now in the hearts of our children.  I am teaching principles of Truth to the little ones who are tomorrows leaders.  Long after I am gone,  I hope they remember the peace and joy of living in truth.
For me, there is no greater feeling than hearing a 3 or 4 year old tell me that God is love, joy and peace and that God loves EVERY one the same.
I am blessed to have a ton of joy and love in my life for the past 45 years but I do not recall ever experiencing this level of joy.  I no longer feel like something is missing in my life.  It is my honor and privilege to serve humanity through the hearts and minds of our future – the children.
Thank you, God for my life and the blessings I have received.  I am so overpaid.

    Hi there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?

    My web site looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4.

    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve
    this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.

    Cheers!
