We decided to get outta Mexico for the day.
It was a long, busy month- and we needed a change of scenery .
So we packed up the car and headed to San Diego.

San Diego is a magnificent city.
It is beautiful, and clean, and warm.
It is also very rich.

I was born in a small town.
Taught to fear Jesus in a small town. ;-)
Took for granted the simplicity of being raised in a small town.

As we wandered around various shopping centers and malls throughout San Diego, Mission Valley, and La Jolla, I saw more money being wasted than ever before in my life.

Twelve dollars to watch a movie.
Two hours worth of entertainment, for four times as much as a ranch hand in Mexico makes for an hour of hard work in the hot sun.
That really makes me stop and think about my three dollar coffee.

It costs (on average) twelve American Dollars to print a Bible in any language.

One movie- or the Word of God.
Two hours of entertainment.
Or someone being given the Truth, in their own language, most likely for the first time.

Do you know that the average American household has four Bibles.
Most Christians have even more.
Did you know that it is illegal to have a Bible in over 52 countries?

Makes me think that KP was on the right track…..
I think Americans alone could financially support the worldwide spreading of the Gospel.
If we all gave away everything that we didn’t need, to someone who really needed it, maybe everyone could have what they really need.
If we really really thought about how much money we need, and gave the rest to someone who didn't have enough.....

Isn’t that how God set it up in the first place??
“So Moses took the redemption money from those who were over and above those who were redeemed by the Levites. From the firstborn of the children of Israel he took the money, one thousand three hundred and sixty-five shekels, according to the shekel of the sanctuary. And Moses gave their redemption money to Aaron and his sons, according to the word of the LORD, as the LORD commanded Moses.“ Nmbr 3:49-51

Do you guys have excess???

I know we do.....


  1. We always have some to give, so that we can be poured out more!


    P.S. You are blessed, indeed!

  2. Yes. We have an excess. Not much, but we do. We do what we can with it. ((hugs))

  3. Oh, Yes. Thanks for the reminder. Love ya.
