It has been awhile since I have blogged. I can't blame the shutting down of Vox. Shoot it had been awhile since I had blogged on that. I can't remember if I had ever even blogged about my Africa - my beautiful, wonderful, heart aching trip to Africa. It wasn't so much that I was hurt. Looking back and processing it a little more I think it was just that I so deeply felt the pain of the little ones I got to know. Not sure why, but I recently decided to look up the word compassion for a Bible study I am doing on Mark. I love that word, but never realized I never really knew its definition. Now I love it even more... Compassion is a deep awareness of and sympathy for another's suffering. It looks like I'll get to start supporting little Eddie's 6 year old sister. I just feel in love with little Eddie - a 10 year old orphan whose education is being supported by my friend. His heart ached to be held by his mother. His precious, gentle heart reminded me a lot of Ian. I ever so much wanted to hide him in my suitecase and bring him home to live with the Shads.
