My Heart Burns For Africa

I am love with Africa. I don't even know why sometimes, but I love it. We have friends from several African countries and there is just something about them that is just so wonderful-I love their accents, their beautiful brown skin, their ALWAYS present smiles (why are Africans so smiley?? It is unreal-every one of our African friends is super smiley all the time and often laughing!! Must be in the African air or something) And of course, my 4th daughter was born in Ethiopia so I have an especially deep love for that country and it's people. I long to go back in some capacity and I know God has Africa in our life forever. We are just waiting to see how that will all play out. We also sponsor a sweet boy in Ethiopia through Compassion, an organization I LOVE (have I maybe mentioned that one or a thousand times??) and who is truly doing GREAT things for children in poverty all over the world. Anyway, for the next week I plan to live vicariously through the group of Compassion bloggers who are in Kenya. Care to join me? Click here!!

Thanks for the reminder. It slipped my mind that that started today. Our neighbors are from Kenya and they are amazing people!
