Awesome Sarah Groves Video

I know, I posted this a couple of months ago but I can relate to it WAY more now that I have seen what I have seen. It brings me to tears when I remember the faces of the beggars and orphans or the babies laying on their sleeping mothers on the side of the road while I listen to this song. I want to go 'home' so bad!! Ethiopia truly seems like home to me and I am counting down the days until I can move there (or visit :). I think it is a great reminder to be grateful for what we have and not to forget what many of us have seen. We need to tell the world that hasn't seen what really goes on in the world!! I should like watch it everyday when I wake up as a part of my devotions or something :) It will change the outlook on our whole day.

Now Ellie, you can't move away quite yet!!! .... if your parents bring home your new 13 yr. old sister she would be so sad if you weren't there! :) We can hardly wait to get "the call" and travel and see everything for our own eyes. Our son will be going with us ... he's worked hard to save for his ticket. Blessings to you! ~Shelly

I agree... this song is awesome. I feel the same way about the DR as you do about Ethiopia. In 2009 though, I am planning to go to either Haiti or Ethiopia. I will start planning in August, most likely, or at least make the decisions of where and when. I will probably be asking you tons of questions if I decide on Ethiopia! :)

Thanks Ellie for re-posting the video. It's amazing how easy it is to lose the perspective gained while in Ethiopia with our consumeristic American society. Thanks for the reminder!
