Once upon a time....

Flash back to 1999, we were a family of four. Happy in our new roomy house and comfortable in our ways. A few years later, the Lord blessed us with an additional little package, little boy #3. Now we were a family of five and sure that would be the end. As time moved on, so did we. The Lord used the time that passed to open our eyes to His will. Several years ago, Bob and I individually heard the call to adoption. It has been a long "pregnancy", but during this incubation time, the Lord has brought us to where He wants us to be. Spring 2010, we traveled to Ethiopia where two little angels were waiting for the Lord's timing - to become our children. Now we are home and can't imagine life any differently! What a blessing to be in His will.

Galatians 4:5 says "God sent Christ to buy freedom for us, who were slaves to the law, so that He could adopt us as his very own children." We are just following his model. A Perfect picture of salvation.

Knit a Square

A teacher in my building share with me a great opportunity to give to others!  History:  She has headed up a knitting club at school in the past, and I have had the pleasure of working with her in this endeavor.  Present:  She found this organization that accepts 8 inch crocheted or knitted squares.  They then ship the donated squares to Africa where another group of volunteers makes them into blankets and garments for children with HIV, AIDS or are disabled orphans.  What a blessing!  Do you Crochet?  Knit?  Join us!  You may use any scrap yarn you have laying around or buy new yarn.  Here's the website.  Check it out!  I know what I will be doing!
