Back in the Saddle

Following a painful bike wreck earlier in the summer, I was still eager to get back on my bike while we were in Jackson Hole.  It was terrifying at first, but I loved riding through the National Park with Chris and Sarah.

It was a great day to ride along the lake.

What can be better than mountains, water, kids and bikes on a pleasant summer day?

Happiness

Compassion’s ministry is helping thousands of mothers, especially young ones, to learn now to care for their new babies.  They’re providing resources, education and supplies that make it possible, literally, for the babies to survive.  This is a really sweet and compelling video you don’t want to miss:

Kids for Kids

This title says it all; it’s about providing baby goats to children in need.  I know how important they can be for the families of our children.  When I sponsored a boy in Haiti, every time I sent extra money for Christmas or birthdays he would buy a goat.  When he graduated and I asked if he had a younger brother I could sponsor, Compassion sent me a new child packet for the brother and it said he was responsible for the family’s “herd of goats!”  I just had to giggle.  How wonderful!
