On This First Monday in May...

Compassion Bloggers: Tanzania 2012

... I am following the Compassion Bloggers as they blog from Tanzania!!! Tanzania is very dear to our family's heart. We hope to visit there one day. Why? Well, because my girl has a Compassion sponsor child in Tanzania. Her name is Happyness!

Our sponsor children have taught us so much... about loving God, about having faith, about trusting... and, about the things that break God's heart! Over the years, as we blessed them with sponsorship... they have, in turn, blessed us with even more... with God-lessons that we would've never learned otherwise.

The endless cycle of grace...

As I continue to count grace-gifts, these are the things I am thankful for this week... #1382 - #1394:

:: All of our sponsor children... each one a gift to us!
:: The ministry of Compassion International.
:: Today... 21 years since hubby and I started dating. ♥
:: Today... 10 years at my job!
:: A new month... hopefully a less busy one for our family.
:: Great start for my boy's Robotics Team as they work on a new challenge.
:: Good meeting... putting plans in place for our church to get more involved in the Jane/Finch corridor.
:: Hearing God-stories and looking to the future at our church's annual meeting.
:: Time to dig in the garden on the weekend. :-)
:: Beautiful sunshine... all weekend long!
:: Going to the Michael W. Smith World Tour concert with my girl accompanying me! ♥
:: Seeing 100+ Compassion children sponsored at the concert! God is good!
:: Great Sunday spent with our church family.

Happy Monday, friends!
May you be looking forward, as I am, to a new week of seeing the goodness of our God!
Eucharisteo curves the moment into a cupola of grace, an "architecture of holiness" - a place for God. Thanks makes now a sanctuary.
Let's soar into this new week together, friends... let's do justice, love mercy and walk humbly!
