Having a heart of compassion, doing something I’ve never done before, I would have thought that I should have felt a lot of fear. A feeling of boldness has grabbed a hold of me; A desire to want to do something for the kingdom of God.
As we started thinking of what to make, the ideas started to come to us. We thought that we could extend Homes of Compassion outside of once a month. The idea of making pillows with the older girls cutting and sewing, and the younger girls stuffing and making the ribbons fell into play. One lady gave a huge amount of fabric and said she would give more, others e-mailed saying they have more fabric to give. When she heard what the fabric was going to be used for, she said that taking time from her own schedule to make something for someone else, to show them that you really care; speaks louder than knocking on a door and asking if they would like a Bible study.
We see our children working better together- they are showing the willingness to put others before themselves- we have more unity as a family. We noticed that in the mist of chaos if we work on Homes of Compassion it will bring peace to the situation. This is showing us that this is the will of God and that He is in it.
