Friday Features

Yes, it is true…  With many things on my schedule and on my mind, blogging takes a back burner. I had mail to share, but on Monday I lacked the gumption to get a post together.  I had randomness to talk about, but morning plans and a car with blown brake lines got in the way of a Thursday This & That post.

My best intentions of being a consistent blogger often get pushed aside because of this thing called real life.

I’m sure you’ll forgive me!

If you’re a Compassion sponsor, you might have already seen the recently released findings of a study on international sponsorship. In case you haven’t, you can read a bit more about the study and its findings here:

Research Shows: Child Sponsorship Through Compassion Works

I’ve been convinced that sponsorship works for a few years now, but the study reaffirms this!

In April, I shared the story of a little girl named Winter and her mission to raise fund to sponsor a child of her own!

Well, I am happy to share that Winter has reached her fundraising goal! Praise the Lord!

Here in the boonies, the weather has been just about perfect and we have enjoyed visiting nearby gullies and spending time outside on our property.

Yes, we’ve had our fair share if trials recently. I am diligently trying to look for the blessings in each day. Mindfully, I am trying to notice and give thanks to the things that bring joy - the gifts of each day.

I hope that you have been blessed. If you’re facing some trials today, I pray that you would notice the moments of joy or peace and that they would bring you comfort.

This song has come on the internet radio first thing for the last four mornings in a row. It has been nice to start the day being reminded that all I am is His.
