And I thought these were great stat's from Walk Slowly Live Wildly

80Percentage of things Americans own that they never use.

300 MillionNumber of shoes thrown into landfills in the U.S. each year (donate them to instead).

75Percent of employed people of recycle at home (yet only 49 percent recycle at work).

Angie has done it again...really shown me such a perfect image of the God I long to serve. I struggle immensly with this. I want so much to be perfect at serving Him. When I fail, I tend to give up. I just want to look at my life as she explained..."Wow. I don't look like myself in that one. Let me try that again." I need to remember this constantly...what a beautiful image of the mercy and love that I absolutely do not deserve.
