Yes, sharing about our black friday again....
When we were in Lifeway... looking at all the specials and getting the Jesus Story Book bible.. the line to check out began to wrap aroung the store. We were looking at the Veggie Tales, bibles, cds... and then we went to check out. Oh my.... what a long line!
Radical. I asked her if she had read Ann Voskamp's book "One Thousand Gifts?" She said, "yes and she follows her blog." I told her I did too. She shared how she had been over seas.... in a third world country. I shared about Compassion.... she said they sponsor from Compassion! It was a wonderful time of fellowship. I know the people standing around must of thought we knew each other for a long time!
God is so good. He gives us the desires of our hearts... the little things that mean so much. I know I have shared this before but in our "area" most haven't heard about Compassion and do not care much about it. Lots are living the American Dream... and do not think about things on the other side of the world... or even the homeless man on the corner. I try not to judge because several years ago I didn't think about those things either.
It was so refreshing to visit with Michelle. Yes, that was her name. She took my name down and said she would look me up on facebook. I am waiting.
I am so thankful for so many of you in the blogsphere that encourage me... may I be an encouragement to you too!
