On top of all this, it's been on my heart to start sponsoring some children, not sure through which agency yet. I heard a radio program recently about hundreds of Compassion children on lists waiting for sponsors, waiting for someone, anyone who will step up and help give them a better life. We have so much and they have so little. Then, Ann Voskamp, author of One Thousand Gifts, posted on her blog about their mission trip and the looks on those kids faces brought tears to my eyes. Finally, a dear friend who adopted a child from Ethiopia, put up a link to Children's Heaven of Ethiopia and I knew without a doubt, we need to help. I'd like to be able to use some of the proceeds through this shop to help sponsor that which is Dear to God's Heart, children. So, I need to get organized, get things going, file the proper paperwork and, hopefully, be in business soon. When the time comes, I hope you will all help spread the word!
Here's just a sampling of some of the items that will be listed.
