Re: John Wayne is dead and the cavalry ain't coming.....
For many years I have realized our main mission field is the people all around us! The ones in our ordinary, everyday life every day.
The measure of life after all is not its duration....but its donation. Our good Lord can use each of us, no matter how lowly in life we are.
My favorite scripture: Malachi 3:16
"Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name!" (Every time we speak of the Lord, or even THINK of him--its written down in a book of remembrance!)
