what are we waiting for?

what if we all stepped it up a notch?  what if we all decided to strive for excellence in everything we do? what if we all made the choice to be more compassionate, more merciful, more loving...more forgiving? what if today was the day that millions of us chose to live in such a way that others wanted to know our secret, wanted to get what we had, wanted to be like us? what if we did it? what if our faith became our focus? what if Jesus became our life? what's holding US back? what's holding YOU back? we have within us the chance to change the world.  what are we waiting for?   www. thegiftofmondays .com
