a vestige of thought...

I hate the feeling of helplessness that I often get when I read articles like this one. When I finished reading its call to action, I sat there and thought, "What can I do, write?" Then I prayed something to the effect that if God wanted me to do something, to please set the opportunity right in front of me. The very next day, not 24 hours after reading the article, I heard about Blogathon. Staying up late, chatting online, writing random (maybe even organizedly random) things... I figure I can do that!
I chose Matthew 25: Ministries because (a) I like their mission, (b) they are local, and (c) I'd heard good things about them. I didn't know a whole bunch about the organization other than that, but the more I learn, the more I am convinced that I picked the right place. I'm planning to do a few posts about them, but I'll probably save those for the actual Blogathon (I don't want to use up all my ideas too soon!), so stay tuned.
In the mean time, what do you want to hear about? I'm working on a list of ideas to write about so that I have something to draw from at 3 in the morning (and probably before that) when I run out of fresh ideas. Be as random or as serious as you like (one topic on my list is alternate uses for hair ties). I'm also looking for a theme I could use for the whole day, so if anything comes to mind, send it my way! As an added incentive... If you sponsor me AND give me a topic, I will use your topic not matter what.
