What matters now?

What matters most?

Lots of time gets expended on less important things. Life tends to consume whatever time is available.

Today, there are people near and far that can and perhaps should be the joy of our lives.  

(The phone rings; it's Walter from Kenya!  He calls to say hello and thanks because we send him a little money each month. He's a polio survivor, lives in a wheelchair, and visited me when I was injured and bedridden in Kenya. He lives in absolute simplicity. He's never asked for anything, and he's taught me more about character and love than most folks in my life. His speech is difficult because of the polio, but we talk regularly and laugh a lot, and he prays for us every day.  He's a treasure.)
