In the mail

My mailbox lately hasn't really been a pleasant place to visit.  Mostly just junk mail and bills.  Not fun!  Especially since in my neighborhood we don't receive our mail at our front door or even at the end of the driveway.  I have to walk about 1/2 a block down a hill to a metal box, unlock my assigned box to retrieve my mail, and then walk back up the hill.  To be honest, some days it is just to hot or to cold to make it worth it so I leave it sit.

This week though I have been watching out the window for my mailperson to arrive.  You see, I have been following Jill over at Enchanted Homeschooling Mom for a while now.  Okay, so I am not a homeschooler officially yet.  Princess A and I were playing school last year, but this fall we begin officially to homeschool preschool.  Still, Jill has lots of great crafty projects as well as free printables, DIY projects, book reviews etc that even a traditional school mom would love.  What does this have to do with my mail?

A few weeks…


For the last two months the ladies at my church have been participating and reviewing Matthew West's new small group Bible study The Story of Your Life.  It has been phenomenal and has really caused each of us to grow.  My projects this week are a direct response to one of the study directives of chapter 3 concerning compassion.  (You can look for a review of the Bible Study in the near future, but seriously, consider doing the study when it becomes available in August!)

If you have been listening to contemporary Christian music for any length of time then you have probably heard Matthew West's song "My Own Little World".  that is what this chapter in the study was about.  "What if there's a bigger picture?  What if there's a greater purpose?" and we looked at what compassion really is, being willing to reach out to others, to suffer with them.  Our assignment for the week was to choose a specific compassion project for ourselves.
