His Mercy

"His Mercies Are New Every Morning"

A Thought

In this life we can not always do great things. But we can do small things with great love.." :) Mother Teresa

Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis

Faith

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

Unpacking

Well, it has been 14 months since we got back from Ukraine with Erika. What an eventful 14 months. As I was cleaning out our closet, I noticed a carry on bag that we had used in Ukraine. It still had a couple of straggling items in it, so I took them out. As I was taking them out, I noticed a business card that somebody had given us in the internet Cafe' we went to in Kiev. I decided to check up on the folks who gave us that card, as they were there doing the same thing we were.

WOW! Do they ever have a story. It is interesting how our lives intertwined for just a moment in time, but the stories that come from that meeting are so life changing.

They adopted an 11 year old little girl. Her story is amazing. She suffered unspeakable torment at the hands of her parents. Then, she was taken to an orphanage after being shot and burned.
