In spite of the news we hear daily, there are good things happening all over the world. I am especially heartened when I see/hear/read about the work of Samaritan's Purse, headed up by Franklin Graham, one of evangelist Billy Graham's sons.
This organization not only takes Christmas shoe boxes to needy children all over the world every year, but when there are disasters, they are one of many Christian relief organizations that quickly and generously responds with just exactly what is needed.
6. When did you last feel helpless, and what did you do about it?
This is a very personal question, so I'll reply by telling you when was the last time I felt THE MOST helpless. That was a little over 7 years ago when I took a terrible fall in my kitchen, and fought to not lose consciousness while waiting for the ambulance. What did I do about it? I prayed, tried to breathe deeply and asked for a wet wash cloth to chew on for the cotton-mouth feeling I had. (a cup of water would have been a sure ticket to barf!!)

Thanks for the inspiration, Terri!
