Having Compassion

Compassion is a word that we find in the bible..We should have compassion to one another... Showing love, mercy, understanding..

Sunday morning, one of the members of our church did a Compassion International expo.. There has been so many times I have been watching T.V., and the commercials come on to help someone who is less fortunate for just penny's a day.. PENNYs !!

My heart is always tugged when I see their sweet, hungry little faces.. But, once the commercial went off so did the emotions I had felt.. Until Sunday morning..

The Griner/Dryden's are now proud supports of a little girl in India....Her name is Simi Kahtoon.. She is 7 years old... We are so happy to be supporting her.

But, on another note... I had mentioned in one of my previous post about all my friends were having babies, or adopting..

Well, before I even thought of supporting a child my heart is being pulled to bring one home. I have been visiting this web site called Reece's Rainbow.. I have fallen in love with each of these children..

One of my good friends told me to talk to my Heavenly Father..And, well I have been. Amazing, how He speaks right to you when you are doing His word.

James 1:27  Simply says that we are to care for the widowed and the orphaned...

I believe that it begins with prayer... I am not saying we are adopting..please don't misunderstand me.. but, I am saying that if I continue to seek God's guidance that you never know what He has in store....

But here is a pic of one of the little girls off of Reece's Rainbow that stole my heart.. Her name is Lizzy and is  she almost 1 year old...
