My Mundane Musings

Growing up I longed for the fast paced life of big city life and corporate America. Now I’m a stay at home mom of 4 in a small rural community! And I wouldn’t have it any other way! (At least for now).

Moved to tears… February 12, 2008

I’m following closely the Uganda bloggers as they travel with Compassion International. This post by Anne Jackson (aka FlowerDust) moved me to tears. I’ll go today and spend $9 on a bag of coffee. A family in Uganda will go and spend the same amount this month to rent a small 6’x6′ shack. Kind of makes you stop and think, doesn’t it?

Stuff like this is why I want so badly to be out of debt. I want to help others. I want to be able to give more money away to those in need. Sponsoring a child in Uganda is just a small way that I could do something like that.

I would love to be able to go on a trip like this. To love on children. To tell them about Jesus. To bring a bit of sunshine into their lives. And I’m sure for them to shed a little on my own heart. But I have a feeling, I’d leave wondering how many of them I could bring home with me.
