VN Bound!!!


Yippee!

It's looking like Mark, Alannah and I will be going to VN with Hope Haven in early 2008! Another wheelchair distribution. It will be my second, Mark's 4th?, 5th?, 6th? and Alannah's first.

So exciting!!

Our Christmas Miracle


Nine, count 'em NINE stockings.

Love it.

Thank you, Lord.

A sweet surprise

Rec'd a lovely ring from Mark for Christmas. Looks sort of like this...

It is a beautiful tanzanite stone, white gold band with a delicate twist, small diamonds on either side of the stone. Purchased from his favorite jewelry store, Tenenbaum's in Waverly.

I love it! Thanks, honey! Mwah!

Exiting Stage Left

Today, I left most of the adoption-related groups I was a member of...as I wait on the Lord, I would like to be found obedient and humble.

Tell that the the tantrumming two year old toddler inside my head.



She didn't get the memo.

Book of Blog 365

Starting a new blog (that makes a total of 4; 3 that are active).

Got the idea from rummaging through some random Blogger blogs. One that intrigued me was called something or other "365" and it was part of trying to be intentional about blogging Biblically for 365 days.


NaNoWriMo a failure.

NaBloWriMo a bust.

We'll see if I can do this...help, please, Lord.

Happy Birthday, Jesus!

For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, [b] Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

7 Of the increase of his government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign on David's throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the LORD Almighty
will accomplish this.

Hope

“With each passing day, I didn’t lose hope.
I fought to have more”.

I would, indeed

I Would Gather Children

Some would gather money
Along the path of life,
Some would gather roses,
And rest from worldly strife.

But I would gather children
From among the thorns of sin,
I would seek their twinkling eyes,
And reveal mischievous dimpled grins

For money cannot enter
In that land of endless day,
And roses that are gathered
Soon will wilt along the way.

But oh, the laughing children,
As I cross the sunset sea,
And the gates swing wide to heaven
I can take them in with me!

Middle of the Night

2:00 AM phone calls are never good.

Thank you, Lord, for holding the one I love close to Your heart.

Help me know how to help.

I truly don't get it.

At. all.

God at work

in my son's life.

I could not be more thankful for this glimpse into his heart and mind.

The Bible is true.

The Lord God Reigns.

Amen.


(Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it)


NABLOMO

Annnnnd, my blog fared none better.
I only managed to blog about half the days of the month.
Sigh.
For someone who thinks they want to be a writer, I surely do not act like one.

NANOWRIMO is a bust

I wrote all of 5K words and some change.

Dismal performance.
