No More Sonic Happy Hour

This weekend, our youth did a "30 Hour Famine" to raise awareness of hunger issues around the world.  Something they said has just been on my heart all day today:

"$1.00 a day can feed starving children". 

$1.00 a day!!!  Why has that been on my mind all day?  And then it hit me.....SONIC.  Oh, how I love my Sonic Happy Hour drink!  And as I was carrying it in the house, just now, I was SO convicted about how flippantly I spend $1.21 almost EVERY day at Sonic...on a carbonated beverage!  I don't even need it to survive (well sometimes I FEEL like I do - ha, ha). 

My husband has a lot of questions about the financial aspect of international adoption (and rightfully so).  But for me, not spending a $1.21 EVERY day at Sonic is just ONE tangible way I can begin to provide for our "little angel" out there somewhere.  That's over $400 in just one year! 

Don't you just LOVE how God speaks to each of us in that still, small voice?  I have been stubborn for WAY too long and have not obeyed in so many "little" areas of my life!  Oh God forgive me! 

What is He whispering to you today? Listen.

"My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me."  John 10:27


  1. Amen sister. We so often ignore His whispers. He is reminding me today that I need 2 spend time memorizing His word. I got out of the habit and I desperately need it.

  2. I think I will jump on this band wagon! Makes me realize how much a month we spend on selfish unnecessary stuff when we can be helping others!
