In my early morning chase of the links  around the internet, I came upon this article by Olivia Ward.  (There is the typical political bent here, but the message is important)

So sitting here in America, where we chase the dream of looking like a skeleton, and complain because the men don’t help as much with the housework as much as we think we should, maybe we should take a moment to consider how truly, truly, blessed we are. Instead of searching for food or facing horrible brutality, we are blogging and knitting and sitting in peace while we sip our coffee and read our Bibles.  I think today I will spend some time in  prayer for all the women in this world who are dying without knowing Christ. Sometimes you just feel so helpless, all you can do is pray.
