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


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)

We Are ALL Home Now

Last night at about 11:00 our luggage arrived safely at the front door courtesy of KLM-NW Airlines. THANKYOU. :)

The girlies were quite excited about opening that bag, because inside they just knew we had brought them a gift. :)

I went to the post office today to collect the mail. That is the worst part of getting back from somewhere. All that MAIL! Ok, I guess laundry is worse, but it is next to worse.

I saw this note and I assume it was for Dear Becca:

It read as the following:

Dear Mam,
I heard you weren't feeling well. Is that true? If it is, then I have a good idea. You need to take medisane each day. And you need to have a rub on your back, feet, hands and face. I know it sounds crazzy, but it feels good!
A Friend who can help you......

I'd say Becca was in good hands with the author, whoever it was. :)

Mom did you see that in the post office? I HOPE NOT!

Hmmm.... I think the author has a pretty distinct writing style! Heehee!

(Thanks for the info, Christie. It was a new part of the story for us although we had heard it sort of already. I think that our well-meaning translator-friend cleaned it up a bit.

Amazing what these children can go through and still come out victorious on the other side. Praise the Lord!)

Yes, I enjoyed that little note. I didn't get to enjoy that backrub though...cause I was too busy to sit down! haha

Christine: I was told to contact you as a result of something you posted on FRUA. I'm currently in Ukraine and waiting for my second appointment at the SDA. We found a beautiful boy and girl, 10 y/o twins. They consented to the adoption and then suddenly had a change of heart. After a week of bonding with these kids, it broke my heart. I'll explain the whole story another time. I was told that where you were there were a lot of wonderful kids in need of a home. Would you please email me privately at hlawrie@itol.com ? Thanks much as I spend my days waiting in Kiev! It will be two weeks tomorrow since I left home. Thanks for your time, Heather
