Food for thought from "Jesus, CEO" by Laurie Beth Jones:

Sandra Marleen Harrison says her only goal in life is simply "To be a blessing." This used to frustrate me . . . how do you develop an action plan and benchmarks for that kind of goal?
And yet, as I have grown, I find that her goal is becoming more and more my own.

. . . from Proverbs 3:18, talking about Wisdom, and it reads, "She is a tree of life to all who lay hold of her branches. Happy are all who retaineth her." And then I realized that was what I wanted more than anything else: to be a blessing . . .
