Gifts From The Heart

This morning God has been breaking my heart for the things that break his. I am sitting here truly wondering why God didn't gift me the passion for playing the piano, or something that doesn't bring me to tears so often.

I started this morning actually with this in my inbox from my pastor (this is part of what he sent):

I'm single-minded in pursuit of you;
don't let me miss the road signs you've posted.
- from the Message Bible

Then I opened Facebook to find a story that is beyond heartbreaking but God is BIG and if enough people spread the word a true miracle could happen. Click here to read about this boy that has only a few days left to find a family.

Then I was doing research on something else God is breaking my heart over and man let me just say that it is time we start taking care of the kids in the world and putting fear aside. IT IS NOT FAIR THAT KIDS HAVE TO SUFFER LIKE THEY DO! It makes me angry that kids not only other countries but OUR COUNTRY are starving, are cold, are being abused, are scared, have no hope. You may be worried about what will happen if the economy crashes, if gas prices keep going up, if you might not make it to St*rbucks today because of the bad weather. These kids are worried about whether they are going to find anything to eat today, are they going to freeze because they don't have a home or heat, are they going to be beaten when they get home today, is anyone ever going to care?

Anyway after many tears this morning I wanted to share something fun with you. Since 90% or so of all children with down syndrome are aborted that means that all the angels left are true miracles. I ran across a blog a couple of weeks ago that help these miracle children's dreams come true. If you follow blogs would you please start following this blog? The reason I ask is that maybe you could be the person they need to help one of these kids dreams come true. You may just know the person they need to contact for a dream to happen. It truly is a small world and you never know when God may be able to use you to bring the biggest smile to a childs face.
