Last month, my daughter wrote a post for her website and described why she liked making others happy. In her 12-year-old way, she wrote how seeing people laugh and smile motivates her to do nice things for others. Bless her little heart.
I love seeing people smile too. I love days like today.
In this world, there is SO MUCH pain and suffering, need I say more. In my travels, I have seen some pretty harsh stuff and heard some stories that have ripped my heart apart. I suppose this is what has drawn me into being so passionate about my job with Compassion.
Today was a blessing. On our first day here in Manila, we didn’t go out and see poverty close up, not just yet (we will tomorrow). Instead, we started our trip with our bloggers meeting their sponsored children for the first time, and then taking them to the zoo.
I love my job!
Now friends, I must say that you haven’t lived until you have visited a zoo in a developing country.
Keely is braver than myself. I really liked Jenny…she was my favorite part of the zoo.
We had a Jane Goodall kind of connection. I could feel it.
…But then Jenny started lifting up my skirt so our relationship ended.
This world may be a dark place, but God is light and in Him there is no darkness.
I saw the light today and it was beautiful.By the way, these photo’s are of Kat. She will have an amazing story about today. So check out her blog later today or tomorrow.
