Hello New Friends!
I was happy to be with you this morning at Rolling Hills Church. I love the way you’ve chosen to meet together to hold each other up in the tender season of parenting young children. I hope my stories were not burdensome to you. I pray that little seeds of hope and compassion were planted in your hearts. And please remember, you are already doing compassion every day.
Here are a few highlights and reminders:
Moms, you are already Compassion Experts (read more here).
If my messy family can practice Compassion, yours can too (read more here).
You might think you have Nothing, but God can make it Something (read more here).
For more about our family’s very first Compassion experiment, there’s our 2010 Haiti story (read more here).
If you don’t believe that I actually dressed up as a Chicken and did the Chicken Dance at the bus stop because I love my daughter and the children of Haiti, here’s the evidence:
- My Chicken Dance at G’s bus stop: Aimee at the Bus Stop Video
- Haiti Partner’s video back to us: Beautiful video from Haiti Partners Children’s Academy
- All of us dancing together in Haiti: Chicken Dance All Together in Haiti
I shared a few tools at our meeting. But in case you left it on the table or the baby colored on it already here they are again:
- Some suggested resources: mops resource list
- A brainstorm page for your fridge or mirror: Family Compassion Fridge Worksheets mops
- The one important questions for living compassionately: daily question for mops
- Some of you asked for more information, more background, and more tips. I’m thrilled. Please roam around at www.familycompassionfocus.com. There are many more tools, stories about our experiments, misadventures, and earnest efforts.
I ask a lot of Soul questions, too, about God, pain, surrender, compassion, and parenting. If you’d like to explore those posts, there’s a page on this blog called “Soul.” I hope you find something that resonates with you there. Find that here.
Mama, you are working hard. You are doing good. I see it. God sees it. Please remember:
“Do not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time you will reap a harvest if you do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9)
You’re doing good.
You are loved.
***I would love to keep encouraging you. Please follow this blog, the Family Compassion Focus Facebook page, and my instagram using the links below (or on the right if you’re on a computer). Peace be with you.***
