Happy Friday everybody!
I just love, love, Friday. It is be the best day of the week for kids and maybe even for me today too!
Ya see, its God Stop time! This is done every Friday through that sweet girl, Patty, and we are most grateful for this time in the week to look back and see something sweet and personal that has happened between you and God. We stop and take notice!
So...mine is short, sweet, and so very deep within my heart.
I was feeling unsettled in my heart that I was not doing something globally to help children's basic needs to be met and for Christ to be brought into their part of the world.
Well, Uganda and the Compassion blogging week was coming up everywhere I turned. I saw the Sara Groves video on Youtube and even posted it because the sense of urgency was taking over within my own heart. It was killing me to look into these children's eyes and reconcile in my mind why I wasn't doing anything to help them.
So, this past week as I read Boomama, Shannon, and Shaun's blogs......I signed up to sponsor a sweet, beautiful little girl named Sophia in Uganda. She is just beautiful. I'm in love with her.
Y'all for only $32 a month you help a child tremendously. The whole nine yards. You are making a difference and PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE look over one or all of these blogs and you'll see and feel exactly what I'm talking about.
Shaun's blog posted a picture and some videos that just make me cry every time I read and look at them. Each one of these bloggers on the trip bring their own sense of style to explain what the week has been like. They have no idea how their week has impacted my heart all the way in TN.
So, I'm grateful that God began that nudge in me months ago. I'm grateful that this group of folks got me to sign up. I'm grateful that I can help this darling little girl, Sophia.
Sophia, we are praying for you daily. I cannot wait to get the information on who you are, where you are, and see pictures of your beautiful face. We love you. And, so does the God of the Universe. He's gently holding you in His loving Hand.
Have a wonderful weekend friends. I count my blessings and I am so grateful for Sophia in Uganda. She has changed my world.
Praying for our bloggy friends to return safely.
