Compassion....

"a feeling of deep sympathy and sorrow for another who is stricken by misfortune, accompanied by a strong desire to alleviate the suffering." ... according to dictionary.com

How much we take for granted in our daily lives .....
How quick we are to feel uncompassionate towards others .... to feel justified when they suffer because somehow they deserve it ....

I just finished reading Ann Voskamp's entry for Compassion International "When Compassion becomes a Gold Rush" ... as always Ann is eloquent and beautiful. The post was so touching, my heart breaks for the young man who's father can not look past his own pain and anger to his son ..... really go read it, I'll be here when you get back ...

We have sponsered two children with Compassion --- Elizabeth from Peru is grown now and out of the program, our little girl in Ecudaor who's name shamefully escapes me at the moment is still being sponsored by us. The Compassion bloggers are in Ecuador right now and I would love to be there and meet our little girl, to let her know we care more than our lack of letters shows. Our busy lives and cares which have kept us from telling her....

Compassion does so much for others, and to know we are a small part of it is a humbling blessing ... to think that somewhere in S America a little girl is blessed by our small offering every month ..... that maybe it makes a difference, to her, to her family.

I pray so....  won't you please consider making a difference in the life of a child and thereby on future generations?

One Godly woman or man can change their entire family tree! Check out the widget link on my sidebar, click the hyperlink above or visit http://www.compassion.com/ ..... remember to be compassionate is not only to feel compassion but to act upon it!
