IF ONLY I Had a Title....

HEY Ya"ll! I know that like 5 people read this, but hey to you five! :) You know, some is better than none. I'm just sayin'....

I don't have a title. I guess it's because this entry could go several different ways. There's lots going on in my life, but then again... when is there NOT?

It seems that the never ending SAGA... oh my word... it IS a saga... with our girl could almost have a blog of it's own. Moving to a new school is emotional... for her mother. She seems great about it. Imagine that! We took her there on Sunday and played on their playground and looked inside classrooms from the outside just to see what she thought. "I think this will be fun!" she said. Oh, how I PRAY!

Lately it has occurred to me that she may never outgrow some of the issues that she has. THAT has made me sad. I know that my God is able to do IMMESURABLY more than I think or imagine so there is hope. I also have to come to terms with reality and that is sometimes hard. ANYWAY! I could go on and on, but GOD is showing me that being in my own little world and not thinking about other things or other people is NOT a healthy thing.

IN other news... I am really excited about an opportunity that we have to serve at a dinner for unwed mothers this week. We have been going to their home once a month and feeding them dinner. NOW they are coming to our church for dinner and we are giving them gift bags, having a speaker and singing for them... it's gonna be FUN! I hope to have pictures next week, but you have to be careful about that type of thing. SOO... maybe I will just tell you about it!

If you think about it... and the Lord brings them to your mind... pray for them. There are some serious walls around these young girls and though they may have many needs... their greatest need is Jesus.

He's my greatest need too. :)

OH! Another really cool thing is that God is revealing more and more opportunities to minister to the special needs community! I am so excited about a potential mission trip and that our Sunday morning Sunday school class has taken off! I need to take pictures soon. They are PRECIOUS! You would not believe how sweet they are and how much their parents just love bringing them to church. How sad is it that churches have traditionally not had a place for people with special needs??? Man! That is a soap box that I could climb on for days!

 

Well, maybe soon I will have an organized, picture filled, fun blog entry. Until then... thanks for reading! ;)

Sounds like you are allowing God to move through you quite a bit! I will most definitely pray for these young ladies! I think its awesome you all are showing the love of Christ through your own hands & gestures... Keep on girlfriend!

So you're taking the plunge. When will she move? I am sure she is going to do just great there and you know there are Christian teachers and parents there as well. We'll pray she will bloom where she is planted! I agree with Rebecca Jo---Keep on!
