Dreams for the future

I hear people talk about having dreams for the future. 

But, what does that mean?

I dream there will be food tomorrow, that I won't have to dig in the dirt for scraps dropped during yesterday's meal.

I dream of having the energy to hold my head upright. 

I dream that we can somehow get the medicine for this disease that is making my mother waste away.

I dream about having a school uniform so I can attend classes.

I dream of shoes so my feet won't get cut when I walk to get water.

Are those dreams for the future?

Is that what people mean?

The above is loosely based on some families that I love. I hope you get the picture of what thousands of children face every single day.

If you would like to make a difference in a child's life, please check out Compassion. So many are waiting for sponsors.

Compassion Pinterest Contest

Compassion has announced a new contest.

It has something to do with this little thing on the internet called Pinterest. I know, you've never heard of it. It's so small and not many people know anything about it.

But, just in case you are one of the few, this contest is for you.

Click here for the details of the contest.

Have fun!

Spread the word!

Get some kids sponsored!

Heavenly Father,

Thank You for being the ultimate Father, the One that can be depended on completely and totally.

Thank You for loving me without reservation. I don't deserve it or understand it. You are the God of the universe - all knowing, all seeing. It makes no sense You would have time for me. I'm so thankful You do. Thankful that You don't have to make time for me. You just are there, always, forever.

Thank You for Grabiela and Eudi and their involvement in Compassion. May they bloom, grow, and flourish in their programs. May their involvement change their families and neighborhoods for good.

I ask that You fill them with a deep knowledge of You so they can grow up understanding the way You work and move in their lives and everything around them. Help them understand Your ways are not their ways early in life. Help them walk in a way that honors You and bears good fruit.

Thank You for protecting them. 

Thank You for allowing our family to be a part of their lives.

Thank You that even though we are separated by many miles our families can know nothing can separate us from Your love.

Thank You for being You.

Take a look

This is the page I need you to visit. It's a very important page. It is filled with cute kids that need to be prayed over and SPONSORED!

You don't have to sponsor a child to look at this page. You don't have to sponsor a child to pray over them.  But, it would be nice if you could.

Look over the page.

Does a child jump out at you?
Does a country jump out at you?
Does a symbol jump out at you?

Pray for that child.
Pray for the care centers in that country.
Pray for the situation that symbol represents.

Look. Pray. Sponsor if you can.
