free tee shirt What do you see when you look at this word cloud created from last week’s blog posts?

We see a fish, think ichthys and chuckle that even a random algorithm gets our spiritual inspiration.

Tell us what connection you make from the Wordle word cloud and you’ll be entered to win this Compassion tee shirt. (Yes, we’re fishing for ways to transition to the free tee.)

You can also order the shirt, or see what it looks like all put together, from the Compassion store.

If you don’t like fish (eating it, thinking about it, looking at it, whatever.) ’cause not everyone does, just leave a comment letting us know you visited and you’ll be entered into the drawing.

We’ll announce the randomly selected winner next Monday.


The winner of last week’s photo caption contest is Sherry W. for this rough paraphrase of Mark 10:15.

“I tell you the tooth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”

    I’m not a fan of fish myself, makes me physically ill after eating it… But I loved that your word cloud looks like one! Awesome.

    When I first looked at the word cloud I could only see one jumbled mess. After looking at the words which included God, individual names, parents, Compassion, diseases and other words I began to see something different. Everything in this world is connected. When my neighbor is sick or in poverty eventually it will effect me or you. We need to help an individual as much as we can because poverty and disease changes an individual’s life, not just a faceless group. All of the words thrown together represent this. It is in the shape of a fish to remind us that Jesus wants us to do something.

    The fact that ‘Malaria’ and then names (i.e. Mario, Martha, Javier) are the most visible part is striking. The fish shape just adds to the compelling nature of the wordle. Thanks for posting.

    I see “child” in the center, surrounded by a cloud of things that may affect the child’s life. How very near, and how very big is malaria, such a threat to many of our children. I see words like parents, disease, Compassion, God, and the names of individual people: a reminder that individual people — ONE person — can have such a huge impact on a child’s life. We, as Compassion sponsors, along with Compassion, God, and the child’s family can work together to be the biggest influence on the child’s life.

    I think about how all of these words deal with needs that must be met around the world. We can effect individuals across the globe very easily from our homes here in the US, and yet many of us don’t ever move to help. We have to start loving others practically.

    It does look like a fish to me, and because we live in an area with lots of wetlands, fish, and fishermen, the mosquito population can be menacing around here. Seeing that Wordle fish with that particular bunch of words really reminds me that the mosquitoes where many of our sponsored children live are far more menacing than are the mosquitoes in my neighborhood! Hearty congratulations to Sherry on her win for her “tooth” caption!

    in seeing the fish, i see Jesus and his provision and stewardship of perfection in his life of healing, teaching, loving, and providing for his children. He has given us the call of Stewardship of perfection as well with our healing, teaching, loving, providing for people in the name of God and for his kingdom.
    I really like how it came out because it just reminds me that there is is still hope offered in christ in the midst of all of the hurt, lack, pain, and poverty.

    Something from…

    Mat 7:10 – 12 Or if they ask for a fish, do you give them a snake? Of course not!
    If you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him.

    I see a fish – give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach him how to fish and he can feed his family for a lifetime.

    What is that old adage, “give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. . .TEACH a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime”. I feel like this is what we do through Compassion. Our children aren’t given hand-outs, our families do not receive out of pity. Our children and our families have committed relationships with Jesus, they are learning trades and accept tokens to help them survive and grow together. We are teaching them to fish. . .no free fish here.

    I see that God is at the head of the church (fish) and that we are all in this together. 1 Corinthians 12:26 – “If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together.”

    The way the words are all together in the shape of a fish immediately brings to mind sardines. Thy must all work together to escape predators. Which, makes them completely dependent on eachother without even knowing how important they are to life below and above the surface of the sea. Truly amazing.

  45. Apr 26, 2010
    at 3:15 pm

    I actually like the fact that God is at the front of the fish, the head of the fish. It’s good to remember that God is always at the head, always in charge of all of our lives (the names) and over everything that happens both good and bad (the diseases).

    The other thing that struck me was that the word God was written slightly smaller than some of the other words which were written largely. It made me think that sometimes we get caught up in the worries of this life and forget that God is still in charge and still bigger than ourselves and all our troubles, no matter how bad things may seem.

  47. Apr 26, 2010
    at 3:15 pm

    It definitely looks like a fish at first glance. But it also kind of looks like a footprint.

    There are many people and experiences that make footprints in our journey and in the lives of the families living in poverty. Some bad. Some good. And some great! Those footprints cover our journey path and shows where we have been and reminds us of what it took to get where we are today.

    When we have God in the forefront of our feet, lifting us up each step we take, we can’t go wrong.

    I see words that some may hear every day or perhaps have experienced. Even though it may look like a jumbled mess of letters its formed into a symbol that reminds us why we are here…why we live what we do and how we do it. The fish symbol was originated to let others know they were christians. Today we use it for the same purpose but more freely. In all that makes up my day of words there is no denying who created me. My life of faith that shapes my very soul into who I am. If I weren’t with Christ..my daily words would not form into a symbolic reminder of who I am and who I stand beside.

  49. Apr 26, 2010
    at 3:29 pm

    It reminds me of the back of a tapestry. The intricate weaving is the artists’ master-piece. He knew just what he had in mind when He created it. He knew how it was going to turn out….but if you were to only look at the back of it you would say “Oh my! What a mess”.

    The names stood out to me first — Javier, Martha, God, Mario. Reminds me that we’re not primarily people who care about solving hunger or teaching children or arguing theology. We’re followers of a personal God who reaches out to his people, calling each of us by name.

    The connection I make, is that the role of the church is jumbled right in there with the needs of the world. We are blessed that we may share that blessing. And, what I like about Compassion is it’s role in the whole “give a man a fish and he will be fed for the day, teach a man to fish and he will be fed for life” idea.

    (And, I love your comment, Jen Jones! :))

    It’s a little abstract for me, but it made me think of the quote, “Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day. Teach him to fish and he’ll eat for a lifetime.” By educating the children we sponsor, we are giving them far more than their daily needs until they turn 18, a lifelong opportunity to succeed. My sponsored child wants to be a teacher. I’m so proud to help make that possible. She will touch many more lives than I ever can by myself.

    I see two things – a fish and/or a grenade. Both are equally symbolic in my mind. Fish: Compassion’s network of volunteers and programs provides food – spiritually, physically and looking-forward…the skills to provide for a family.
    Grenade: Only God knows how much time we have to reach the children of the world.

  73. Apr 26, 2010
    at 4:41 pm

    My first thought was “ichtus”. Second was Jesus and the loaves and fish–he provides that which seems impossible…and one fish can go a long way to feed a hungry child/family.

    I thought the word “Compassion” and it had “little” and “disease” connected to it means with Compassion there is little disease meaning disease it mitigated b/c of Compassion. So to summarize again with Compassion there is little disease. I WIN!

    When I look at this jumble of words, the word ‘malaria’ stands out to me first and foremost. Then I notice the names, ‘Martha’, ‘Javier’ and ‘Mario’, followed by the words ‘children’, ‘parents’ and ‘community’. All of this causes me to think of the Sara Groves song called ‘Abstraction’ which reminds me that diseases like malaria affect (and too often kill) individuals, people who each have a name, and subsequently their families and communities. So often we hear statistics and mass numbers and fail to really think about the individuals represented by those numbers. Each one is known to God, is loved by God and has value.

  83. Apr 26, 2010
    at 7:13 pm

    Children (and parents) are important to God-he knows our name. There are alot of other words, but that is what jumped out at me, both specific kids names and kids in general.

    I see words roughly shaped like a fish, but beyond that I see kids. Some are bog, some small. Some darker, some lighter. Some hidden in the background because they’re shy, some up front and bold. Each word in the wordle represents a child Compassion supports. Every size, all ages, all races, they’re all still God’s children and like the words are all together in the ‘fish,’ God holds all His kids in His hand :)

    What I noticed the most is that GOD is at the head of the fish. The head is what guides the fish just as God is the one that guides us. The other thing I notice right off were three of the words at the tail. Parents, people and church. The tail of the fish is what moves it and steers. Parents and the church are so responsible for steering our children in the right directions.

    It seems like the eyes of the fish is the word “GOD”. So the fish sees through God´s eyes and what he sees are people living in poverty and his heart is full of compassion for them. God reaches out to the lost and to the poor and for this he uses us.

    Though I see a fish and I like all the words used, I wish the positive words were more pronounced & the negative words (i.e. malaria) were more in the background. Compassion is all about making a positive difference and should be expressed as such.

    I see both the rabbit and the fish (makes me think of a good tuna fish melt sandwich) as well as the grenade, bowling pin….I love how everyone sees something different! I also love how the white letters stand out on the black background, an awesome effect :)

    It makes me think of when Jesus used the five loaves and two fish to feed the multitude. Some of the words on there are very distressing, but we have a sovereign and powerful God who is over those things. He can take fish and use them to shape the multitude.

    What an awesome shirt! Thanks for sharing with us. I can see the fish and it’s significance in many ways. Thanks for doing all that you are!

    I thought “Through our donations, this fish feeds, clothes, educates, encourages, and shows God’s love to many more than 5000!”

    Love this shirt!

    My first thought was a fish too. I also see a slightly misshapen warthog- Head on the right, Martha is the tail.

    With all the talk about money these days, it’s a good reminder to remember it’s not just our country that is suffering. People all over the world need help. I really like the theme of the tee shirt and the fish!

    I don’t love fish, but do love the wordle. Such a lot of things to think about.

    I see the fish, but my eyes tend to focus on the words more…and the ones that caught me were: use, little, compassion, now.

    “Use a little compassion now.”

    The fish is a symbol of silence. We must listen more clearly to human suffering. As “fishers of men” we are called to comfort our fellow human beings and drown out the “noise” in their lives. This fish represents God at the helm leading us from the “noise.”

    The words do resemble a fish; each word held together with on purpose—to reach out and use Gods love and teaching to be your brothers keeper.

    I think it’s pretty cool how all these words connect and make up what Compassion is all about.

    If you turn your head 90 degrees to the left and look at it… it absolutely looks like a woodpecker.

    A woodpecker on the verge of foraging through some bark to “russle up some grub”.

    I love it, the words that stuck out to me are compassion, children, community, child.

    what a jumbled mess we live in. Which is why we need GOD at the head to lead us.

    Not a fan of fish but I like the cloud and everthing inside seems like its what Compassion is all about, providing for those in need and meeting needs.

    I do see the rabbit, fish and woodpecker but the words stand out to me.
    I see children and parents forcing malaria out of the system led by Martha, Mario and Javier with God powering the whole thing from the tail end.

    Although we announced the winner of this shirt in another blog post, I never closed the loop here. My apologies.
