Something to Think About

Same topic as yesterday...but it is worth posting about again. I was very moved by this post from Melissa Moore Fitzpatrick today. I think I need to print it and re-read it on a regular basis.

If you are not reading the blogs from the Compassion blogger team that is in Inida right now, you don't know what you are missing. You can go here and here for two of many beautiful stories that will move your heart. Hopefully move it toward helping a child.

Who Knew?

I am not a big one for jumping on the bandwagon... I saw a link to this video several times before I finally watched. I have watched it four times now and been moved to tears. It will leave you feeling good--I promise.

Town Hall for Hope

If you are as tired as I am of all the fear and doom and gloom about the economy in the media you will want to particiate in the free nationwide simulcast event hosted by Dave Ramsey on April 23. It is way past time to start spreading a message of hope. For my friends who live close by, we are hosting the event at Highview Christian Church or you can click on the Town Hall for Hope link in my sidebar to find out more and find a location near you.

A Hectic Week--A Random Post

This has been such a busy, hectic week. One of the longest I remember in quite a while. Several late nights at work but, I think I got everything done and the coming week looks LOTS better. My sweet hubby and I are filling in at the last minute for a Sunday School teacher who had to have surgery. We are doing a marriage series based on the Fireproof movie. Prepping this first lesson took a ton of time, but I think it will be good. My Esther Bible study has to take a one week break because our study room will be being used as a polling place prep for that class will help alot. Because I needed something else to do, I just finished taking an online Photo Editing class--good stuff; can't wait to play with some new photos of my favorite little subject. I have my new kit from Freehand Scraps to play with at our church crop on Friday night. It is called Serendipity and is FULL of beautiful, fun stuff. I am also really looking forward to this coming weeks A Woman Inspired online conference.

A new blog friend linked me to this great blog candy giveaway on a fun blog called My Bucket Overfloweth Kelly does some great cards like this one Pop over there and check it out.
