My computer works and more!

Hey Team, guess what? My computer has come back from the land of frustration. It happens that there is a fine gentleman in our ministry who is computer savvy enough to save my paperweight. What a guy. And not only did he fix it, he gave me cool new programs like the one I used to make this little collage from our trip last weekend to Hilton Head. I am on cloud 9 with my new snazy computer. Christmas has come early in my soul! Thanks Jason, John and I cannot thank you enough. More pics to come.

never mind . . .

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.

Are You Kidding Me?

So it is Tuesday night and I am mourning the loss of my clothes. Tonight I decided to do some laundry which I have not done at night before due to the fact I have to walk to our shady laundry room . . . and as I was walking in to pick up my clothes from the dryer I noticed that half of my clothes were gone!
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!

Bro is looking so good

This is the second time that I was not able to see my brother go off to homecoming. But just like last year he was looking smokin. His date (and now gf) Taryn was looking beautiful as well. It looks like they are a cute couple for sure.

Oh my siblings, I miss you, come back to me, I mean I will come back to you! You are looking so good, I wish I was there.

My mom and Brandon's date. Two beautiful women!
