These past few days I have felt conflicted.

Have you ever felt like that?

You know the feeling, right?

Where you know God is wanting you to do something but you don't know what it is yet.

Satan is telling you it is all in your head, you will never be able to do it anyways, its never going to work out, blah, blah, blah.

I think that is a pretty good way to describe it actually, blah.

I just feel blah.

I do want to tell you guys a few things that are going on right now.

Compassion International
has sent out the new group of bloggers. They are in Kenya, and the stories will rip your heart out. Please be in prayer for these bloggers, and they allow God to break their hearts the way only He can.

Also, if you can and you feel like it is something you can do, please visit the site and sponsor a child. After you read the stories, you will see what just $30 a day can do to change a life.

You may notice one of the bloggers that are on this trip,
MckMama is in Kenya with her Husband and the other bloggers. The pictures she shows and the stories these guys tell are amazing!

Want to know a little secret? Doing something like this has been a dream of mine for a while now. I think this is why I feel so blah, every time Compassion sends out another group of bloggers. I know that Compassion needs to send people that get a lot of traffic so that those sweet beautiful faces will have a better chance of getting a sponsor. I know that in my head. But in my heart I want to be able to help.

I want to go see for myself what wonderful work Compassion does.

I want to see the difference that I know they are making.

I want to kiss those sweet little cheeks.

I want to help!!

So, you see the top left of my side bar I have a Compassion Button. That is because I have committed myself to writing about Compassion once a month on the topic they give me. I know that is not much, but if it will bring one child to be sponsored then it's done its job.

Then...maybe one day...well you never know what God might have in store!!

After all, a girl can hope, can't she?

I follow McKMama and I have been following another blogger's tweets about the Compassion Trip to Kenya. I would love to go and help too. I know that it's not possible and the church I attend doesn't go on missions trips. In my own small way I hope to make a difference.
Glad to see you posting about this.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Compassion is such a wonderful organization! Do you currently sponsor a child? I think now would be such a great season to get started with not only to help a worthy child, but also to teach compassion to my own children. It would be so neat to get my kids in on the letter correspondance - color pictures for the child and also learn about another culture.
