Just One More...


how did you know?

i am beginning to think i am boring you silly
with my cushions!
i am driven by the picture in my mind
of all those people who have lost everything in those floods
and have to restart their lives materially...

it is a perplexing thing to think about though
because i know that in brazil they have lost hundreds of people recently in floods too...
and there are so many disasters around the world
where people lose their homes.

and i wonder
how then can i ask people in other countries to contribute to queensland
when we are so much better off
than a lot of countries.

but i can't really do anything to help them..
i have to do what i can
with what is in my hand
and help those i know how to help...

if only in a very small way.

i hope they will see the kind intentions of our hearts
and know that we care!

we can't fix the world
only God can do that...and He has through sending Jesus!
if only people would listen to Him...
but they go their own way...that is free will!

i can only do my bit...
the bit that He has placed on my heart...
and that
is enough for Him.

deep thoughts today...

i am thinking though that i will have a give away apron when i get to a hundred followers...
i'll make one this weekend just in case i get there!...not so deep a thought!!

have a wonderful weekend!

with love
naturally Carol xox
