It's a Girl!
Last week I had a computer crash... It is still not fully up to standard... It has good for my sanity and mom's that she had a week off treatment. Something exciting did happen though. After much prayer and conviction, I have a child.... Did you faint yet? No, I didn't give birth... I didn't adopt.For years I have wanted to sponsor a compassion International child, but always put off, but when I could no longer avoid the fact that God had planted this desire, I knew what I had to do. I went online and looked for children who needed sponsorship. I know I'm not the parent, but what joy it has already brought to me to be a part of a child's life. It went without saying for me I would choose a girl to sponsor. I know boys need love and support too, but sponsoring a girl seemed right. I wrote my first letter Anelis today.She is 4 from Bolivia. I have heard Michael W Smith speak of compassion International for years at concerts, but never responded, for several reasons... However recently every place I went something was said or done to promote Compassion. I was concerned about the financial commitments, but once I went to the website, and I knew I would do whatever I needed to do! Have you ever done something that turned out to be far more rewarding than you imagined? Love to hear about it! By the way, if you want to check out more about compassion you can here... For me, the time was right, and it is already a blessing! Here
