Another Gift from Sri Lanka (CCF)

This beautiful card arrived today from Nisansala in Sri Lanka

Nisansala is one of my sponsored children thru Christian Children's Fund. I recently posted about her here. At the very young age of seven years, seven months, she is quite an artist! I am very impressed with her drawings.... and her lovely messages of love that she sends so often to me. I may never actually meet these children, but they are very much a part of my own family, and my heart...I started sponsoring thru CCF over 25 years ago, to help children and to try to make a difference. In return, i am so surprised at how much their love has changed and enriched my life...

Nisansala is quite an artist! I kept looking at that thing trying to decide if it were local art from another area or another country. I guess it truly is! The bread baking post is wonderful too - even though I can't have but a tiny bit of bread with this diet I'm on. I guess if I made it whole wheat, I could have a little.

I love what you do with CCF, and that's one of the reasons I nominated you for the Lemonade Stand Award today. See my blog for details! And thanks for having such a great blog!

Hey there, Mare!! I have missed checking in on you...
What a wonderful artist Nisansala is! I'm sure it's wonderful to get something like that from a child so far away...
