Love Awe Wonder…

Living Life Filled with Love, Awe and Wonder

Touching Lives…

Leave a comment

I am exhausted physically from three days of working with The Habitat for Humanity Carter foundation. Although this trip, my volunteer role was less physical than when I was in Mississippi, being on this project moved me in a way I am still processing many emotions…

Touching lives… I was sent a picture this morning of a simple rubber band that sat on a new friends counter in the shape of a heart and it made her think of me… I was moved to tears… Perhaps from mental exhaustion from being involved with such a wonderful life changing organization as Habitat… Or maybe just knowing my passion to spread Love and living life filled with love, awe and wonder is touching lives….

I wonder daily about life, love and others. Living in a world filled with love, and what that could look like… I witnessed unconditional love all week from strangers who volunteered for strangers and yet sometimes we can’t even love the ones closest to us… This trip has me stopped in my “simple little life tracks” wondering even more…

I was in awe as I listened to President Carter humbly share his love and passion for God, life and people… As we were privileged to work along side with the Carter’s and hundreds of others, President Carter’s morning devotional was very inspirational.

The life changing lesson I walked away with from a moderated Democratic Southern Baptist (his self description)
was ” We are all equal in Gods eyes” a lesson he shared from the bible in Matthew 20. Sounds so simple doesn’t it? And yet look at our world… A lesson that had me looking at myself…

I am humbled by this experience with the Carter’s Habitat for Humanity Project, a life changing three days… I was also moved by this simple little heart shaped rubber band that was sent to me because it reminded my new friend of me… Touching lives in a way that leaves a Life changing impression, what a blessing to receive…

I have many stories to share about the host family we built for this week. There were 11 new home builds and 15 home critical repairs that took place this week in Denver Co… I was just a “tiny little piece” of a 2,000 piece puzzle that changed lives we may never even know about… But there is one life that was changed forever… Mine!

Thank you Charity and Patrick from Africa who was the host family I had the honor to serve this week, you changed my life!

And thank you JoEllen for taking a moment to send me a priceless picture of a simple reminder of Love…

Truly seeking to live life Filled with Love, Awe and Wonder….

Living life filled with Love, Awe and Wonder allows me to see the Love and Joy all around... I live by this quote: "My past is not my Future it has taught me to live in the Present"©aweider I Love People, am in Awe of Life daily and Wonder about everything always…. I love to inspire others to recognize the Love that is within them, the Awe of the beautiful life that surrounds them and the Wonder of life’s gifts that can amaze them!
