6:07 AM, no time for a title

i couldn't decide between serious or not so today. so....both. i'm posting my favorite picture from the thanksgiving weekend. it may or may not be my son who is or isn't leaping over the couch onto what may or may not be the sofa bed, and my brother may or may not be condoning this behavior by shooting the picture instead of yelling, stop!


and now, on perspective:

number of times today that i wished for a new car:
2? 3? 14?
percentage of people, world wide, who own a car:
8
number of times i sighed today because we're on water rations at our house due to a a temporary electrical problem:
11
number of people who lack access to safe drinking water:
1.4 billion
amount of boy scout chocolate covered caramel popcorn i ate last night just for the sake of eating, not because i was hungry:
2 cups
number of malnourished people in our world:
1 billion
number of Bibles strewn carelessly about our house:
14
number of people in the world with no Bible available in their primary language:
340 million

‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
