Weekly Wednesday Word

Recently, I attended a sales meeting with a great motivational speaker, Jim Abbott. Back in the 80’s and 90’s, Jim was an All-American college baseball player, an Olympic Gold medalist and a major league pitcher for several teams, including the New York Yankees. His accomplishments as a pitcher are even more amazing due to the fact that Jim was born without a right hand. Within his speech, he spoke about the highlights andlowlights of his life and career. Aside from great achievements, he also had to overcome tremendous adversity that, at times, took a toll on his spirit. During one of those down periods, one of his baseball managers took him by the shoulders and told Jim to “be a fountain, not a drain”. Those words really resonated with me and I have thought about them quite often since his speech. As a single working mom, I must admit that sometimes my “fountain” runs a little dry. Too often I miss the opportunity to refresh someone’s soul with a kind word or gesture. As a Christian, I truly want to provide some much-needed splashes of kindness and caring to those around me. My biggest problem is that I rely on my own supply and fail to ask God to let His love flow through me. My prayer for all of us today is that we will be a fountain, pouring out our Father’s love on those in need refreshment. Have a wonderful day! Go out and make a splash!     LANA
