Yesterday, after taking a picture of part of our snowy yard, I decided to switch from the Autumny sort of theme I had to something a little more Wintery. We did, after all, get a decent snowfall in the last couple of days. I also figured out how to do the little tab things that go between my header and posts. I think it might come in handy for any new readers that stumble upon my blog. I’d love to hear if you have any constructive criticism or ideas for me. It is my hope that this can be a useful resource for sponsors. Do you have any ideas? I’d love to hear them!
I also want to thank everyone for their support and helpful comments and Bible verses to go along with the struggles I shared yesterday. I am happy to say that I was very active and productive yesterday and ALSO managed to sidestep those temptations that I was trying to avoid. Today has gone really well, too! My friend, Megan, shared a great verse that I wrote down in my prayer journal and read many, many times over the course of the last two days.
“No temptation has overcome you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.” 1 Cor. 10:13
Ah, yes… The wisdom and reassurance that can be found in The Word.
In other news, I am excitedly filling up my calendar with lots of great Compassion International events in the coming months. (One of the fabulous bonuses to becoming an Advocate is getting to work great shows!) This month, I’ll be working while Shaun Groves does something-or-other (sing? speak?) at a nearby college. Next month, we’ll work a table at a Denver and the Mile High Orchestra Show, In March, we’ll work a Michale W. Smith and Amy Grant show. In April, we have our annual Advocates conference and get to brainstorm, learn and also hear from a former Compassion child and LDP student.
