A Few Things Close To My Heart

A few things have grabbed my heart this year, and I'd like to share them with you!

First being, October is SIDS Awareness month. Too many children still pass away without a reason given, thus it's declared SIDS, leaving the parents with no idea why it happened. Please consider giving towards research and education, over at The CJ Foundation for SIDS. Remember to keep those families who've lost a child to SIDS in your prayers this month. Thank you!

Second, Operation Christmas Child! I know, it's only October 2nd, but their deadline is coming up fast! Make sure you head over to their site and check out the resources they have available. This year, we're doing one with Michael in mind.
 Their mission: The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God's love in a tangible way to needy children around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Third, with the election so close, and with all that I've been convicted of, I've joined in with many others to pray for God's guidance in these coming days. I've decided that enough of enough, I needed less of me in my choices, and more of Him. I joined a site called, If My People 2012. From September 28 to November 6th, they will be praying for the nation, for our leadership, for a revival in the hearts of believers. I ask that you join with me, and my family, and seek His face during this transitional time in our nation.

Thank you for taking the time, to consider one of these actions. I know there are many more deserving foundations and movements to participate in, but these 3 are my focus right now. 

I hope your October is a blessed one, and go now, and bless others!
