A consequence of spending time reading the Bible every day is that the Lord is spending time talking to me. Like, when I’m not reading His Word.
I guess he doesn’t want to interrupt.
He interrupts plenty at other times, though.
I have to be honest with you, Dear Reader. This was not at all what I expected to happen when I commenced this challenge. I’m not sure what I did expect, except to read The Bible.
Anyway, I have been on the lookout for something good I could do, for someone else.
And then, yesterday, I read a Tweet about something I’ve seen a hundred times before – Compassion International.Ã‚ I read Kristen’s post about her impending trip to Africa, and I thought it was nice.
About three hours later, I had a light bulb moment.
That’s it! That’s it. That’s what we can do.
I brought it up with Joe, and he was in total agreement that we should sponsor a child. He sat down next to me on the couch, and we set out to find the child.
We searched Compassion International for a little girl, about Grace’s age, with the same birthday as Grace.
We found her.
She’s a beautiful child.
Her name is Evelyn, and she lives in Ghana.
