Word Filled Wednesday


I love this verse.  :o)


The photo above is from my friend, Sarah, she is living in Burkina Faso Africa for the next two years.  I have loved looking at her photos of these beautiful children.  I find that this is my prayer for each of them…that they would come to know they are His children and they would know His love lavished on them…I love that word…what a wonderful thought God lavishing His Love on us :o)

I am very fond of little children, especially those from Africa because my heart was stolen by one earlier this year.  God asked me to sponsor a Compassion child earlier this year, and I will be honest, I balked at the idea.  I mean my budget is tight, and when I say tight I mean down to the penny tight…so after much going back and forth I decided He knew better than me and I sponsored my Catherine…and I fell in love.  She sends the most wonderful letters, and at the end of each one she tells me two things….that she loves me and that she is praying for me.  My heart clenches at the thought of this sweet little one praying for me, who lives in the US and has so many comforts, and she who lives in Uganda in a hut with no running water…she prays for me….now who is richer?  I think perhaps it might be her, actually I know it is her.


I hope you feel His Lavish LOVE today.

    Precious children! I remember studying some missionary work in Burkina Faso with some Acteens several years ago. Bless your friend for going and being God’s arms and legs. Love the verse you shared, too. Happy WFW!

    My BIL and SIL both go to Africa every summer to Mozambique. I think their hearts stay there the rest of the year too.

    What a beautiful, beautiful image and I love that scripture! Thank you for sharing the story of your sweet Compassion child, Catherine. Sounds as though God is using both of you to be an incredible gift to one another.


    P.S. Could you please share with me what software you use to place your text?
