I say hopefully, because you know how I get once I start talking/writing. I'm liable never to stop.
1 - Adam thinks I should point out something about my little blue box post. See our pastor told us the story of how a little girl one time gave him a dollar, and he saved that dollar for years and years until he lost his wallet. When RayRay gave me my dollar, I might have spent it on diet coke pretty immediately. Don't judge. The blue box, however, I will treasure.
2 - My best friend Courtney and I took our kids to the Children's Museum in Atlanta this Tuesday. We felt very ambitious and savvy, taking our kids downtown for an afternoon outing. It was fun, albeit slightly chaotic (because every second tuesday is free-day at the museum). And afterwards? I was exhausted, reinforcing my belief that I should probably just stay at home with Jayci and remain un-ambitious in our activities.
3 - I cannot stop thinking about Haiti. I hate that we are so insulated and protected that I can go through my day without even worrying for one second about the fact that there are people dying, hurting, afraid . . . As a Christian, I MUST believe that those people are my neighbors, my brothers and sisters, the "least of these" in every way. And like I talked about earlier this week, I need to learn to give sacrificially. For us right now, that means giving financially. Want to give too? Here's a few ways you can be involved:
-Hope for Haiti (a blogger who is doing raffles to raise money for Haiti relief)
-The Red Cross
All I know is that we need to rally to help those who are hurting, whether it's right here in Atlanta, or half-way across the World . . .
