I Know it Makes No Sense

I've been following Shannon's blog as she traveled to Uganda and back to promote the sponsorship of Compassion children. This post has especially been on my mind as I walk through my home (why, with all the other stuff she's said, this one? Dunno.). And I didn't even go and have to go through re-entry.

Anyway, I've felt an urgent need to get rid of stuff. As if somehow ridding my home of unappreciated toys and clothes will feed a child in dire straits.

I don't know, maybe I'm hoping it will at least make us appreciate what we have more.

I think that making life simpler (less toys, clothes, STUFF) doesn't necessarily feed one hungry child immediately, or educate one poverty stricken child, but it creates a mindset and a lifestyle for your children - who do have the potential to feed, educate, and make a difference.
