If I could.....

Ever since the earthquack in Haiti struck, I have felt so compelled to help out all those in need. it is just tragic. I could not imagine having one of my family members missing or stuck under a peice of rubbal, or dead. I told myself I was not going to be obessed in watching t he news about it,but always finding myself watching it.
 The whole time I am thinking, if I was in a different place in my life and did not have a family that means everything to me, I would fly to Haiti and help out in every way I could. Mission work has been coming up in our family and is weighing heavy on our hearts,but I cannot imagine bringing  my 2 little kids to a third world country. I have also really been thinking about adopting a child from a country where things are just awful,but then again not sure we are in the right place right now.
  All these things are just things we are thinking about,not really going to do them at this  time. Maybe in the future when our kids are older and can understand why we are going or doing them.
I watched the telethon last night and I did make a contribution. I watched such  a wonderful presentaion of Justin Timberlake and Matt Norris singing click on
 hallelujah. So so touching. I got tears in my eyes for sure.
Please continue to pray for all the lives that have been affected by this event.
