What a feeling...When I saw this I thought it was a fantastic idea. I tried it out today as I wrote out two cards to a two year old with cancer and her 4 year old sister. What an emotional time I had. If you've been around me when I pray aloud, you know I cry because it really touches me to pray for someone. I don't know these girls but know how difficult life is with cancer. I can't imagine it in a two year old. Lord, please hold this family near.
I sent birthday cards and a thank you card and felt the cards were more special to me now that I've prayed over each one. The recipient won't know, but God and I will. :)
Try this some time. It's amazing the feeling of peace I have doing this. Thank you Lord for putting this in front of me.
Maybe they were saying, "Can we take them back?" "It's not too late!" They are both smiling. My dad was a fun-loving guy, so who know what was said during this time. Maybe they laughed because each thought the other would get up with the babies! I can't imagine having 2 newborns and an 11 month old. They would have had to put me on drugs! LOL I don't know how my parents did it.
We come from a large, Catholic, Italian family. There were 7 of us in all. That number of kids gives me nightmares! LOL It was a different time. Many families were large.
This spoke to me as well. Anyone else?
Verse of the Day: Better is one day in your courts, better is one day in your house, than a thousand elsewhere.
I found a song that was brought to mind as I read this scripture.
This is for all of us who are spending Christmas with an empty chair. This is a beautiful song.
Blessing of the Day: We hopefully have a good plan to get Ben reliable transportation. We'll see how it goes.
Thank you for stopping by.
