We Have a Choice

We have a choice to REFUSE to remain UNCHANGED.

We have a choice to let Real pictures like these not just touch us for a moment, but for a lifetime.

We have a choice to make that change that will move our hearts from momentary sympathy, to a lifetime of loving and serving God’s people, his children.

Galatians 6:9
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

What if we stay unchanged?

Where would they be?

The answer.... it is heart breaking.... heartbreaking for the ones without family, and heartbreaking for the families still together that are suffering from basic need... while we live with more than we need....

What will I do?

What will you do?

More importantly, will we do it today?

For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.
~ Philippians 2:13

Refuse to remain Unchanged Today

The New Step One Is Complete!

Sorry for being so absent, but I have been in my canning/freezing season and just tons of other things. I plan to start blogging regularly soon, so I hope some still read. I haven't run out of things to say, just haven't had time. :)

My news today on the switching over from a foreign adoption to domestic is the home study has been transferred over and complete! YAY

With that said we have a lot of fundraising to do. We are essentially starting over and will need to raise at least 28k. I know with that we may receive more negativity and many other things, but the thing we are most at Peace about is that we are completely in GOD'S WILL. That gives us so much peace, and the strength to move on because he is about to bless us and another one or two of his precious children.

So we ask for your prayer that God gives us the wisdom we need to press on and do his will in this adoption and everything. We know he will provide and we trust that.

Your prayers and support mean the world.

With that said I will leave you with a quote I put on FB the other day. No one, besides God of course, says it better than Mother Teresa!

“At the end of life we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made, how many great things we have done. We will be judged by ‘I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat, I was naked and you clothed me. I was homeless, and you took me in.’”
-Mother Teresa
