This is what happens when my friend Olivia gets together with Miles and I... sheer silliness it is. Miles had a pest-critter for an Organic Farming project he's working on and then Olivia and I took it to the enth degree here. Olivia may work on a whole series of these little guys... And look for the Garden Flower Vector Templates coming up in a week at the Sophia Sarducci Shoppe.

Now, you will notice that Olivia has tucked HER terms of use in with this giveaway. There has been (so very sadly) piracy running rampant - so she's informed me that she will supply me with goodies for all, until it gets taken advantage of, so lets all be decent and if you care to share, have the respectability to send your friends here to download it for themselves, arrite?

Ok, so we are all making plans for the weekend. We might go for dinner. Might rent a movie. Well for sure we probably have some sort of entertainment and good food planned. And, if we added up what we plan to spend -why I just BET it is at least, or more than the cost of sponsoring a child from Compassion for a month. Let me assure you, you will get far more, and long lasting, satisfaction from taking care of a child for a month than anything you've got planned for yourself.

"There will always be poor people in the land.
Therefore I command you to
be openhanded toward your brothers
and toward the poor and needy in your land."

Deuteronomy 15:11

And we don't need 'commanding', right? Because this kind of satisfaction goes right down into your soul. I was SO moved by this blogger's journalling about what her sponsoring means to her. I fall far short of what she's doing, but at least I am doing something! Can I move you to help, too? I'm doing this as much for yourself as the children.
