Oh my goodness...
I clicked on this blog that I follow of an AMAZING girl in Uganda, and saw this image:

I was sitting with Austin and just couldn't believe what I saw.  That sweet woman is 23 years old.  And weighs less than my 6 year old son.  He was wondering what all the "oh my goodness, oh my goodness" was about so he starting looking at it with me.  He said, "That makes me feel so weird, mom."  Yes, it does.  For so many reasons:  you want to do SOMEthing, you want to know her story, you want to share what we have, you wonder why we have what we have and other people don't, you want to know how she feels, you want to shower her with love through the computer screen, it makes you angry, sad, fearful that she will die, and just "heavy" in general.  It is so sad.  I just wanted to share to keep us reminded that there is so much that we don't think about day in and day out that is happening around the world.  So sobering.

I saw that post with this pics too the other day. It took my breath away...very sobering. Such a reminder of all the many people and ministries that we need to be praying for everyday!!
