{Day 42}

Sometime we have an off day/moment/year…but I don’t ever want to stay in that “off” place.  I have been given so much.  More than I deserve.  When I think about that it puts things in perspective.  So here is a few things I am thankful for:

Ears to hear truth
Eyes to see everyday miracles
Hands to help others (and type!)
Weakness so I don’t think I can do anything on my own.

Are you grateful for what you have been given? If so then please give a gift today to the orphans. Don’t wait. You have been given this moment. Make it worthwhile.

Since I don’t have a lot of words today I am sharing this video…because it speaks beautifully.

    I just want to bless you in the work that you are doing… I’m sure it’s not always glamorous but how rewarding to think of the orphans you are helping and the people you are influencing/inspiring. You probably have no idea how many people you’ve inspired to be more giving, more caring, and to seek God for ways they can reach out to others. May the Father continue to fill you with His grace and submerge you in His joy! 🙂

    I recently read “Adopted for Life” by Dr. Russell D. Moore and I’ve been so impacted by it. I never really thought I’d read a book on adoption and I’m not sure where God may lead me in the future, but I know He will be faithful to show me His plan. I HIGHLY recommend this book! http://christianaudio.com/blog/2011/02/free-audiobook-of-the-month-adopted-for-life/

    Blessings!

    P.S. I check your blog almost every day!
