"Who will teach them (the orphan) that they are loved and valued and cherished?Oh, yea. The body of Christ. Each person who calls themselves a follower of Christ takes up the responsibility to love and care for the fatherless. It is not some special, specific calling. It is the duty of all who call themselves Christians."
This is not of her own thinking, this is biblical. In many places God calls us to care for the fatherless, widowed, orphaned, poor and weak. This is not a special calling, we are all called to care. If adoption is not an option for you there are ways to care for these. Are you a Christian? Then this is not a question of how you "feel" about it.

I would love to have something earth shattering to write - I am sure there will be those in the future but most of my gratitude is for the dailies and I am so thankful for MY dailies.
We are in a very busy season, honestly, it is quite embarrassing how many thing we are involved in right now. We had the most quite and calm winter and boom, now we are doing everything offered- oops. So any prayers that you could pray for us would be great. My #1 is that with all the schedules and chaos I would not forget a kid!
1.) I am so thankful for my husband. He is truly a great guy. I had no idea what a blessing I was receiving when I married him. Which baffles me because I was not exactly serving the Lord when we met but Hey I'll take this blessing and Praise God for it!
2.) My kids. With all the fun, sports and activities they fall asleep in like 2 seconds - too cute.
3.) I am thankful for my vehicle. This apparently is going to be our new dinner table and I am so thankful that it is nice enough that I enjoy it, yet used enough that I can handle McDonald's-apple dipper-camel spilling in the back seat.
4.) For all of our little critters - now that the sun is starting to shine I might start to remember why we feed them all so much.
I am so thankful! Thank you Jesus, for I know all good gifts come from you! Amen

2 Let my teaching fall like rain
and my words descend like dew,
like showers on new grass,
like abundant rain on tender plants.
3 I will proclaim the name of the LORD.
Oh, praise the greatness of our God!
4 He is the Rock, his works are perfect,
and all his ways are just.
A faithful God who does no wrong,
upright and just is he.
Lord, thank you for your renewing, life giving, freedom granting, soothing word to this child. - Amen

Thankful Thursday! I am so thankful! God is so amazing and worthy to be trusted.
1.) The most amazing blue sky and sunshine through my window today! Mmmm.... it felt so good!
2.) The Word of God - my moral compass in a corrupt world.
3.) My church family and my pastor that has been speaking some major truth!
4.) Firemen - see lower post!
5.) People who have gone before us to answer a call.
6.) Paul Washer, Joyce Meyer, John Piper, John MacArthur, Corrie Ten Boom, James MacDonald, Dwight Sanders, Chip Ingram - just to name a few. I am thankful for their bold preaching and online downloads.
7.) Wrestling! My hubby use to wrestle in college and had desired to get our boys on the mat since they were born - well the time has come and they all are glowing by the end of the session at the Y (or is that sweat?). J you are an amazing husband and daddy - thank you for being the spiritual leader in our home, coach, fixer of all things, provider.........I seriously could go on and on! Thank you Jesus for J - You have blessed me indeed.
OK I know I got a little sappy but this is MY blog right?
Have a great day! What are you thankful for?

Is it really Thursday? OK, well I am so thankful for so many things this week.
1.) I am thankful that my G-ma is whole and healed and in the presence of Jesus! No more suffering.
2.) My whole family!
3.) Mornings with God and His word - the lamp unto my feet.
4.) My friend that I took to get radiation today. She only has 3 more radiation treatments - she has done an amazing job at fighting breast cancer. She is one of the most positive people I know!
5.) A warm house! It has been very chilly.
6.) A great little family vacation to the beach. The ocean is so majestic!

For all you Mama's out there I thought I would share her big day details, as only a mama can understand the humor. Birthday girl woke up to 2 sick (or was it 3) boys and a sick hubby. Followed up with a prompt visit to the Dr's for a strep test then off to clean the van where her 3 year old locked the keys in the car which made for a $50 visit with the locksmith..........Happy Birthday Mommy Style!
Happy Birthday Sis - I love you!!
