Speaking of Opportunity

“… clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience…”

Colossians 3:12

Today we all have the opportunity to have compassion.  Today we all have the opportunity to love.  Today we all have the opportunity to put our compassion and love into action.  Gracefully sharing my thoughts is not exactly a strength of mine…  I ramble…  so I am simply going to say that I was so moved today watching the media coverage on the devastation in Haiti … I couldn’t bring myself to post on anything else… I can only imagine what I ‘think’ that kind of devastation would feel like… Today I want to encourage those who can give ~ to give.  For those who can not give ~ please pray.  Please  be sure to give with an organization that you trust.  Our local news channels have lists posted on their web pages of trusted organizations who are currently taking donations specifically for Haiti.   Today I can not go to Haiti and lend a hand…   I can have compassion, I can give and I can pray!


I am only 4 days into my blogging adventure… and this post is arriving at nearly 10 pm.  Not exactly in my blogging plan.  Apparently,  I am still trying to find the balance of attempting to figure out how to put my thoughts out here and find the time to put my heart into it … while conducting life with two kids (one I home school and one in public school), a crazy puppy who demands much of my time, and the rest of daily life…. being a mom, a wife, a friend, a neighbor, and keeping up with housekeeping, cooking, laundry… whew!  I am sure this will get easier… I will find balance!   Thank you for having patience with me, eventually I will have rhythm and balance… and I hope that my posts will be live early in the day!

Thank you for visiting –   please come back again!
