amid my frustration over my clothes I ran across this youtube video from a guy visiting his compassion child.
makes me forget about my clothes . . .
The crazy reality that I am learning about more and more from some of my classes is the fact that slavery still exists in large amounts. 80% of slaves are women and 50% are children. Watching this video caused me to be so thankful for compassion among the various orgs that seek to bring hope and a future to these precious people.
I guess anyone who has not considered it could consider sponsoring a child now. John and I have been sponsoring a boy named Biplob from Bangladesh and who even knows if it has bettered his chances from not being sold into slavery by someone who needs to make some more money.
I have been reading Not For Sale and I am hardly far into it but I have been devastated by the reality and prominence of slavery today. Please join me in allowing God to soften our hearts toward His precious ones. I am pouting for a good reason now.
Some loon has taken some, but not all of our things from the dryer. Who knows why someone would take underwear, older towels and my beloved wear-under-everything tank tops? I have a big pout on my face. Give me back my clothes!
