I’m joining a fabulous network of bloggers who are blogging for Compassion International this month.
Meet our Compassion kids, Oscar and Alexandra. (His bio card says “Javier” but he prefers his middle name.)
They live in El Salvador and we’re in our third year of sponsorship with them. We love exchanging letters, and they enjoy receiving photos of our family, especially Sophie (our 5 lb Yorkie). They’re very interested in snow, and I just sent them some pictures in hopes they get them at Christmas.
There are thousands of children around the world just like them. Compassion‘s goal for September is to enlist sponsors for 3,108 children. You can choose based on the country, gender or age.
Why not hop over to their “Sponsor a Child” page and see who you find?
I keep the kids’ photos on my desk (and by my coffee), and one thing I pray for them is this:
“Lord, may Your Holy Spirit stir in Oscar and Alexandra’s hearts
during the quiet moments of each day.
Help them to understand that You are always with them and
give them an extraordinary sense of Who You are.
May that constant awareness of Your Presence
shape the way they view themselves and their worlds.
Use the Compassion workers to help them learn
to walk in the joyful hope of eternal life with You.”

BTW – I’m going off the cyber-grid this week! Last Wednesday was our 25th wedding anniversary, and this week we’re spending time away from the normal craziness. (If you missed my 7 Secrets for a Happy Marriage, be sure to check them out and add your favorite tip!)
I’ll be back on the grid next Monday, and things will go back to normal.
Whatever THAT is…
Have a great week!
